The fool who knows…

Pilgrim Welcome Committee, coastal Aki, Shikoku. January 2012.

 

A fool who knows his foolishness is wise at least to that extent, but a fool who thinks himself wise is a fool indeed.

— The Dhammapada, 5:63

We can only begin from where we stand.  Gross ignorance is nothing to boast of, but a sincere fessing up is a start.  Humility is not merely a pleasant character trait — it is essential.  It is simple honesty.
