1827- He narrated to me from Malik that it reached him  that Luqman al-Hakim counselled his son and said:, “My  son! Sit with the learned men and keep close to them.  Indeed Allah gives life to the hearts with the light of  wisdom as Allah gives life to the dead earth with the  abundant rain of the sky.”

From the Muwatta’ of Imam Malik (ra).
