Men are four:
1- He who knows and knows that he knows. This is a man of knowledge; follow him and learn from him;
2- He who knows but does not know that he knows. This man is asleep. Wake him up;

3- He who knows not and knows he knows not. This man is ignorant; avoid him;
4- He who knows not but does not know he knows not. This man is a fool. Keep him away.

Women are four:
 .
1- She who knows and knows that she knows. This is a woman of knowledge. Men are advised to steer away from her;
2- She who knows but does not know that she knows. This woman is asleep. Do not wake her up;
3- She who knows not and knows she knows not. This is a good wife. Propose fast before other men;
4- She who knows not but does not know she knows not. This woman is an angel and the ultimate perfection. Men should happily die for her.
