An ounce of gold is worth a ton of dust.

Some relevant quotes from HPB & the Masters:

"A portion of the true [esoteric/theosophical ] sciences is better 
than a mass of undigested and misunderstood learning. An ounce of 
gold is worth a ton of dust." HPB

"Nothing is more dangerous to Esoteric Truth than the garbled and 
distorted versions disfigured to suit the prejudices and tastes of 
men in general." HPB

"Be prudent, we say, prudent and wise, and above all take care what 
those who learn from you believe in; lest by deceiving themselves 
they deceive others . . . for such is the fate of every truth with 
which men are, as yet, unfamiliar. . . ." HPB's Teachers

"The publication of many of the facts herein stated has been rendered 
necessary by the wild and fanciful speculations in which many 
Theosophists and students of mysticism have indulged, during the last 
few years . . . . " HPB

"The human mind can hardly remain entirely free from bias, and 
decisive opinions are often formed before a thorough examination of a 
subject from all its aspects has been made." HPB
