The fool!

Have more than thou showest,
Speak less than thou knowest,
Lend less than thou owest,
Ride more than thou goest,
Learn more than thou trowest,
Set less than thou throwest,
Leave thy drink and thy whore
And keep-in-a-door,
And thou shalt have more
Than two tens to a score.

- King Lear- 1.4.138.
