Know thyself, thine evil as well as thy good, and flattery shall not harm thee; her speech shall be a warning, a humbling, and a guide; for wherein thou lackest most, there chiefly will thy sycophant commend thee. — Martin Farquhar Tupper

要有自知之明,了解自己的优点与缺点,这样才不致被奉承所害。谄媚的话是一种警告、一种指标;因为奉承者所谄媚的那一部分,可能正是你最脆弱的地方。- – – 马丁•法夸尔•塔珀
