HE WHO KNOWS...
HE WHO KNOWS...
Posted by the d.o.m. on Jun.20.2005 @ 08:21 PM EDT

He who knows knows whether he speaks or keeps silent,
whether he answers the question or refuses to answer it,
whether he gives an explanation of something or does not give at all.
These are only a few.

He who does not know does not know at all
whether he speaks or keeps silent,
whether he answers the question or refuses to answer it,
whether he tries to explain something or does not explain it at all.
These are quite a lot.

Knowing or not-knowing does not depend on
speaking or silencing, answering or explaining,
words or no words.
