Hier hilft dem Dummen die Dummheit allein!

A meditation on some colleagues – from Richard Wagner’s Siegfried (Act 1, ~line 900):

Hier hilft kein Kluger,
das seh’ ich klar;
hier hilft dem Dummen
die Dummheit allein!

Here no sensibleness helps,
that I see clearly;
Here what helps the idiot
is idiocy alone
