Persian Proverb



I found this in an old poetry anthology I was recently reading:

"He who knows not, and knows not that he knows not, is a fool, shun him.

He who knows not, and knows that he knows not, is a child, teach him.

He who knows, and knows not that he knows, is asleep, wake him.

He who knows, and knows that he knows, is wise, follow him."

I don't know what the art work has to do with the quote. It appeared in my google search for "Persian Proverb." And it used to hang in my old apartment, so yea. The quote is attributed in the book as anonymous. A Persian proverb.
