To know yet to think that one does not know is best;
Not to know yet to
think that one knows
will lead to difficulty.
The power of intuitive understanding
will protect you from harm
end of your days.---Lao Tzu
He who knows that enough is enough will always have enough.
Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering
others is strength, mastering yourself is true power.
Nature is not human hearted.
