Know Thyself

A person who knows not, and knows not that they know not,

Is foolish – disregard them.

A person who knows not, and knows that they know not,

Is simple – teach them.

A person who knows not, and believes that they know,

Is dangerous – avoid them.

A person who knows, and knows not that they know,

Is asleep – awake them.

A person who knows, and knows that they know

Is wise – follow them.

All of these persons reside in you,

Know Thyself,

And to Ma’at be True.

(From the book, Nile Valley Contributions to Civilisation by Anthony T. Browder)
