the best known French poet of the late Middle Ages.. and - probably- also a member of a wandering gang of thieves...
It is Villon, in the French: Je connais tout fors que moi-mesme.
I know everything except myself is certainly a good translation of the Villon line, which appears on more than one page of his work. John Xavier, M.A. (French) .
I want to know if it's francois villon who has the poem: 'I know everything except myself'
I know flies in milkI know the man by his clothesI know fair weather from foulI know the apple by the treeI know the tree when I see the sapI know when all is oneI know who labors and who loafsI know everything but myself.
