Trying to find quote on Calamity of not knowing where to turn
I'm trying to find a quote which I remember seeing before it roughly goes like this:
"What greater calamity can be found for those seeking answers yet not knowing where to turn"
This is a paraphrase obviously and I can't find the actual quote. I believe it's from Baha'u'llah and it might be from the Aqdas or the Iqan but I'm not sure. I've tried several search terms in Ocean and Google but am not finding any luck.
Ideas or help anyone?

This is from Iqan:
"What “oppression” is greater than that which hath been recounted? What “oppression” is more grievous than that a soul seeking the truth, and wishing to attain unto the knowledge of God, should know not where to go for it and from whom to seek it? For opinions have sorely differed, and the ways unto the attainment of God have multiplied. This “oppression” is the essential feature of every Revelation. Unless it cometh to pass, the Sun of Truth will not be made manifest. For the break of the morn of divine guidance must needs follow the darkness of the night of error. For this reason, in all chronicles and traditions reference hath been made unto these things, namely that iniquity shall cover the surface of the earth and darkness shall envelop mankind. As the traditions referred to are well known, and as the purpose of this servant is to be brief, He will refrain from quoting the text of these traditions." Iqan, p.10
