Seeking knowledge to act according to it
*Please appropriately reference this quote to: www.fatwa-online.com, thankyou!*
Maalik ibn Deenaar said:

"If a man seeks knowledge to act according to it, his knowledge gratifies him, and if he seeks knowledge for other than acting according to it, then his knowledge [merely] increases him in pride and haughtiness."
