"The superior man acts before he speaks, and afterwards speaks according to his actions.

The greater man does not boast of himself, But does what he must do.

A good man does not give orders, but leads by example.


this is taken from confucius but relates to the quote


oepidus rex

Off the cuff, I would say this means, "I admire your wisdom, and you speak well, but it will take me awhile to understand your meaning."

But I believe this was said in regards to a riddle if I'm not mistaken........ can you tell which line this comes from?
