    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'

Ballade

I know flies in milk
I know the man by his clothes
I know fair weather from foul
I know the apple by the tree
I know the tree when I see the sap
I know when all is one
I know who labors and who loafs
I know everything but myself.
