Yo bālo maññati bālyaṃ,paṇḍito vāpi tena so;
Bālo ca paṇḍitamānī,
sa ve “bālo”ti vuccati.
63. The fool who knows his foolishness is wise to that extent. But a fool who considers himself wise is the one indeed to be called a fool.
Yāvajīvampi ce bālo,
Na so dhammaṃ vijānāti,
dabbī sūparasaṃ yathā.
64. Though a fool associates with a wise person for his entire life, he never understands the Dhamma like the spoon that never tastes the flavour of soup.
