For a man to dream that he is a fool is good to him who would undertake any business; for fools and madmen do that which comes into their brain. It is good also for marshals and sheriffs, who would have authority over the people; for they shall have great honor and repute. It is also good for those who would govern and teach children; for children do willingly follow fools. It is also good for the poor, for they shall have goods; for fools catch on all sides and all hands.
To the sick it is health, for folly makes men go and come, not sleep and rest.
