No man can reveal to you aught but that which already lies half asleep in the dawning of your knowledge, Khalil Gibran, “The Prophet”, 1923

If he is indeed wise he does not bid you enter the house of his wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your own mind, Khalil Gibran, “The Prophet”, 1923
