Some Wisdom from Ptah-Hotep [Aug. 6th, 2007|08:56 pm]
Kemetic Paths
[mood |amusedamused]

"Be not proud because thou art learned; but discourse with the ignorant man, as with the sage. For no limit can be set to skill, neither is there any craftsman that possesseth full advantages. Fair speech is more rare than the emerald that is found by slave-maidens on the pebbles."

-from The Maxims of Ptah-Hotep

This has got to be one of my favorite bits from the Maxims. Just thought I'd share it with everyone in hopes you all will enjoy it too.
