Dhammapada 64 [Khuddaka Nikaya]

5 - Balavagga, The Fool
5 - Udayitthera Vatthu
Yavajivampi ce balo, panditam payirupasati;
na so dhammam vijanati, dabbi suparasam yatha.
64: A fool, even though he is associated with a wise man all his life, does not understand the Dhamma, just as a ladle does not know the taste of soup.
Mya Tin, Daw, tr. The Dhammapada: Verses and Stories. Rangoon: Burma Tipitaka Association, 1986.
