It is related that Jesus(PBUH) in one of his revelations saw this world in the form of an old hag. 'How many husbands have you had?' he asked her. 'Too many to be counted', she replied. 'Did they die or divorce you?' he asked. 'I killed them all', she replied. "how strange of these other fools', he said; 'they see, but they take no warning.'

“Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.”<br />Lao Tzu
