THIS is not the original, meaningful text.

The irony is there is likely an Oracle in the original book of Baltasar Gracian, to address being aware of "imitations".
This is the Publishers idea of creating modern (sic) wordplay on a classic, timeless, eternally relevant Oracle to life and living.
Do yourself a favor, go by the original hardbound cover book, not this thrown together imitation.
it's like drinking weak coffee.
