“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 the light.”

Zhuangzi, The Complete Works of Zhuangzi, Watson tr. (Ch 12)
