Dante, Inferno, Canto I:

In the middle of our life journey I found myself in a dark wood. I had wandered from the straight path. It isn’t easy to talk about it: it was such a thick, wild and rough forest that when I think of it my fear returns…. I can’t offer any good explanation for how I entered it. I was so sleepy at that point that I strayed from the right path.

I nearly fell out of my seat laughing when I read this Dilbert post:

Researchers have discovered that people who are incompetent generally lack the knowledge that they are incompetent.

This lack of self-awareness is the glue that holds democracy together.

It is all the more funny because I mostly agree!
