Some people’s stupid is smarter than other people’s smart.
Sometimes questions are more important than answers.
“Wisdom cannot be imparted. Wisdom that a wise man attempts to impart always sounds like foolishness to someone else … Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom. One can find it, live it, do wonders through it, but one cannot communicate and teach it.”
— Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha
“A learned fool is more a fool than an ignorant fool.”
“People do not wish to appear foolish; to avoid the appearance of foolishness, they are willing to remain actually fools. ”
— Alice Walker
“Talk sense to a fool and he calls you foolish.”
In seeking wisdom thou art wise; in imagining that thou hast attained it – thou art a fool.
— The Talmud
