On Knowledge

knowledge.jpgHe who knows not, and knows not that he knows not, is a fool - shun him.


He who knows not, and knows that he knows not, is a child - teach him.

He who knows, and knows not that he knows, is asleep - wake him.


He who knows, and knows that he knows, is wise - follow him.


- Persian Proverb; see a slightly different version in Roy B. Zuck, The Speaker's Quote Book (Grand Rapids, MI: Kregel Publicadtions, 1997); reprint, (Valenzuela City, MM: CLC, n.d.), p. 220.
