Temet Nosce -  Know Thyself

Nosce te ipsum." The Suda, a 10th-century encyclopedia of Greek knowledge, says: "the proverb is applied to those whose boasts exceed what they are", and that "know thyself" is a warning to pay no attention to the opinion of the multitude.

"Know thyself and thou shall know all the mysteries of the gods and of the universe", which is a lot easier said than done.

The better people understand themselves, the more easily they can put themselves in other people’s shoes.
