Subtract from the great man all that he owes to opportunity, all that he owes to chance, and all that he gained by the wisdom of his friends and the folly of his enemies, and the giant will often be seen as a pygmy.
Those who realize their folly are not true fools.
It is great folly to wish only to be wise.
He who lives without committing any folly is not so wise as he thinks.
