There is no end to the learning of Ayurveda. Hence you should carefully and constantly devote yourself to it. You should increase your skill by learning from others without jealousy. The wise regard the whole world as their teacher, whereas the ignorant consider it to be their enemy.
From Charaka Samhita, one of the most important fundamental works on Ayurveda. It is based on the teachings of the sage Atreya, initially written by Agnivesa around 800 BC, and rewritten by sage Charaka around 200 BC. (www.vedicworld.org/vedas.html)
