Seven things characterise the wise man, and seven the blockhead. The wise man speaks not before those who are his superiors, either in age or wisdom. He interrupts not others in the midst of their discourse. He replies not hastily. His questions are relevant to the subject, his answers, to the purpose. In delivering his sentiments he taketh the first in order first, the last, last. What he understands not he says, ?I understand not.? He acknowledges his error, and is open to conviction. The reverse of all this characterises the blockhead.

    سبعة أشياء تميز الرجل الحكيم ، وسبعة رأس بلوك. لا يتحدث الرجل الحكيم قبل أولئك الذين هم رؤسائه ، سواء في السن أو الحكمة. لا يقاطع الآخرين في خضم خطابهم. يجيب ليس على عجل. أسئلته ذات صلة بالموضوع ، إجاباته ، لهذا الغرض. في تقديم مشاعره يأخذ الأول من أجل الأول ، الأخير ، الأخير. ما يفهم أنه لا يقول ، أفهم لا. يعترف بخطئه ، ومنفتح على الإدانة. عكس كل هذا يميز رأس بلوك.
