Ibn Abbas رضي الله عنهما an example for the seekers of knowledge…

 بم أدركت العلم ؟ قال : أدركت العلم بلسان سؤول ،وقلب عقول ، وبدن غير ملول

Ibn Abbas رضي الله عنهما was asked:

How did you gain your knowledge?

He said: I gained it with an inquisitive tongue, an understanding heart, and a body that does not tire.

sharh riyadus al-saaliheen shaykh Uthameen

‘Umar رضي الله عنهما said of him:

فقال لهم : ذاكم فتى الكهول له لسان سؤول وقلب عقول

This is for you a mature(with regards to his understanding of the deen) young boy, who has an inquisitive tongue, and an understanding heart.

Usool al-Tafseer shaykh Uthaymeen

And Ibn Abbas رضي الله عنهما said of himself:

قال ابن عباس: ذللت طالباً فعززت مطلوباً

I was lowered in my pursuit of knowledge.

So I became esteemed, when I was pursued.
