Know Thyself.

He who knows others is learned.
He who knows himself is wise.

Lao-tzu, Tao Te Ching. c.600 BC.

If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.
If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat.
If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.

Sun-Tzu. 544–496 BC.

How can you come to know yourself? Never by thinking, always by doing.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. 1749-1832.

We don't see things as they are, we see things as we are.
Anaïs Nin. 1903-1977.

"Know thyself" - a maxim as pernicious as it is odious.
Any caterpillar who tried to "know himself" would never become a butterfly.

André Gide. Nobel Prize in literature in 1947.
