Gnothi Seauton (2015)

Although much of Gnosticism may now seem occult verging on witchcraft, at its heart was the concept of γνῶσις (gnosis), knowledge in the sense of wisdom and deep understanding, rather than the memorisation of many simple facts. Key to this γνῶσις was self-knowledge, hence the Delphic maxim γνῶθι σεαυτόν (gnothi seauton), the exhortation to know yourself.

Gnothi Seauton (2015)

"Don't count your chickens before they're hatched - Gnothe seauton. It means 'know thyself' and should really be written gnothi seauton as it is the aorist second person imperative, as I'm sure you knew. It doesn't make sense, but perhaps that's the intention. Probably it's just a setup for the 'it's Greek to me' line. Instead of Know Thyself they should have written 'Know the Gauls'. That would be more logical, but isn't a famous Greek phrase. My head is not a happy place to be right now. Still, at least the bouncer came off worse." 041b061a72
