Know Thyself

Jerome, Letters 61.3.1 (to Vigilantius; tr. W.H. Fremantle et al.):
It is no small gain to know your own ignorance. It is a man's wisdom to know his own measure, that he may not be led away at the instigation of the devil to make the whole world a witness of his incapacity.

non parum est scire quod nescias: prudentis hominis est nosse mensuram suam nec zelo diaboli concitatum imperitiae suae cunctum orbem testem facere.
