O Reader, how many an evil that you see in others is but your own nature reflected in them! In them appears all that you are your hypocrisy, iniquity, and insolence,
You do not see clearly the evil in yourself, else you would hate yourself with all your soul.
Like the lion who sprang at his image in the water, you are only hurting yourself, O foolish man.
When you reach the bottom of the well of your own nature,
Then you will know that the wickedness is in you.
