Ptah-Hotep: Philosopher and Leading Statesman (2640-2040 BC): 

 

"On Humility and the Quest for the Perfect Word"

"Don't be conceited about your own knowledge. Take advice from the ignorant as well as from the wise, since there is no single person who embodies perfection nor any craftsman who has reached the limits of excellence. The perfect word is as rare as an emerald yet it may be found among the maidservants working at the millstone."
