It is much harder to judge yourself than to judge others. If you succeed in judging yourself, it’s because you are truly a wise man.[translation by Richard Howard]It is much more difficult to judge oneself than to judge others. If you succeed in judging yourself rightly, then you are indeed a man of true wisdom.[translation by Katherine Woods][Il est bien plus difficile de se juger soi-même que de juger autrui. Si tu réussis à bien te juger, c’est que tu es un véritable sage.]
