    The less he spoke the more he heard;

    knowing yourself is true wisdom.
    Mastering others is strength;
    mastering yourself is true power.

    but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it.
                                                               -Albert Einstein

    Fools because they have to say something.

  • The truest greatness lies in being kind,
    the truest wisdom in a happy mind.

    and by seeking we may come upon the truth.
