“The man who knows he is a fool is not a great fool.”
Paladin quoting- Zhuangzi
“He who knows he is a fool is not the biggest fool; he who knows he is confused is not in the worst confusion. The man in the worst confusion will end his life without ever getting straightened out; the biggest fool will end his life without ever seeing .”
