267. He is the wisest man

He is a fool
Because
He has not read any books.
Perhaps so he is.

He is a wise man
Because
He has read ten thousand books.
Perhaps so he is.

He is a wiser man
Because
He has read fifteen thousand books.
Perhaps so he is.

He is the wisest man,
By far
The wisest man,
Who has read only two special books:
Aspiration-height
And
Surrender-light.
