A way to wisdom, circa 2300 BC

Don't be proud of your knowledge,
Consult the ignorant and the wise;

The limits of art are not reached,

No artist's skills are perfect;

Good speech is more hidden than greenstone,

Yet may be found among maids at the grindstones.

--An Egyptian maxim--

Arrogance and pride, how many things do they make us overlook? I hear people dismiss ideas because they came from popular culture or someone without the right background and I have to wonder.
