I love your proverb "those who goes straight to the important point, loses all important points". Here's a few more wise sayings:

"Those who seek knowledge, fail to find knowledge"

"Those who study, fail to study"

"Those who try to understand, fail to understand"

"Those who try to be wise, are not wise"

And, how about...:

"Those who try to teach others, teach nothing instead"

This all reminds me of the movie "Mystery Men" with Ben Stiller. One of the crime fighters always states a Heraclitus (opposite meaning) proverb throughout the movie, until Ben Stiller's character goes bonkers. Very funny movie.
