He who knows not, and knows not that he knows not, is a fool - shun him;
He who knows not, and knows that he knows not, is a child - teach him;
He who knows, and knows not that he knows, is asleep - wake him;
He who knows, and knows that he knows, is wise - follow him.

It doesn't take any brains to listen to music.
