The Learned Extols.

A learned man talks less.
He sees through things more.
He performs the most.
With great dignity and pride
he gets through in life
honoured and adored.

An unlearned man talks more
He sees through thingsidiot lesser.
He performs the least.
With great ignominy and shame.
he gets through in life
cursed and detested.

This made through in every event
greeting and soliciting the former
shunning and discarding the latter.
Thus goes the world in gracing
the great mind and the belittled one
upholding the meritorious while disowning the empty heads.
