Careful with:

One retains the meaning but not the words and so miss something what can be important.
One retains the words but don't grasp the meaning and so miss the great importance.
One retains no words and no meaning; teaching is senseless.
One recollects both, but misinterpret them.
One is mixing up the sequence of the teaching, and so losing the logic and consequently proliferating wrong ideas.
Commit not a single unwholesome action,
Cultivate a wealth of virtue,
To completely tame this mind of ours—
This is the teaching of the buddhas.
