Lower and Upper Bounds
A. Minimum or Less
I freely admit that I take as a rule
That anyone dumber than me is a fool.
But alas! That implies what is quite plain to see;
That my wisdom, at best, is the least that can be.
B. Upper Bound
That anyone wiser than me is a sage
Is a thought I have sadly accepted with age.
There is one consolation I take from this rule;
At worst, I’m the wisest conceivable fool!
