Serenity and Contemplation

The highest wisdom comes from two things: serenity and insight.
Develop your serenity, and you strengthen your mind. You are freed from desire.
Develop contemplation, and your strengthen your wisdom. You are freed from ignorance.
Desire and ignorance enslave you! Free yourself with serenity and contemplation.

from Anguttara Nikaya 2s (II, iii, 10)
