Fostering Ma'at
December 5, 2015

listening that I might hear
the voice of wisdom amid the clamor,
the peace that I desire must begin with me.

"He who fosters Ma'at diminishes falsehood (grg),
And he who fosters goodness is a destroyer of evil (bw),
As when satisfaction comes and ends hunger,
As when clothing ends nakedness,
As when the sky is calm after a / high wind and warms all who are cold."

"The Tale of the Eloquent Peasant", translated by Vincent A. Tobin, in
_The Literature of Ancient Egypt_, edited by William Kelly Simpson, (Yale University Press, 2003) page 38.
