The Philosopher or the Friend of Wisdom

See, I carry heaven and earth upon my arms, without trouble.
With my mind I perceive all things.

What is past, I revoke; What is present, I understand;
What is in the future, I can see and interpret from three aspects.

But yet, ever I show myself friendly, willing, and ready,
and I am rightly compared with a boy, simple and just.
