Εν οίδα, ότι ουδέν οίδα. Το απαύγασμα αυτογνωσίας από τον κορυφαίο διανοητή.
"Πας ο υψών εαυτόν ταπεινωθήσεται και ο ταπεινών εαυτόν υψωθήσεται" (Κατά Λουκάν, ιδ. 7-11).

Just thought I'd mention the quote immediately reminded me of Hesiod, W&D 6-8.

ῥεῖα  δ᾽ ἀρίζηλον  μινύθει  καὶ  ἄδηλον  ἀέξει,
ῥεῖα δέ τ᾽ ἰθύνει σκολιὸν καὶ ἀγήνορα κάρφει
Ζεὺς ὑψιβρεμέτης

"easily he humbles the proud and raises the obscure, and easily he straightens the crooked and blasts the proud, —Zeus who thunders aloft"
At last, I have peace.
