I warn you, whoever you are, Oh, you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you don’t find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you be able to find it outside yourself.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies? In you is hidden the treasure of treasures.
Oh, man, know yourself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods.
