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
The quote of the day:
If the Great Way perishes there will morality and duty. When cleverness and knowledge arise great lies will flourish. When relatives fall out with one another there will be filial duty and love. When states are in confusion there will be faithful servants.
— Lao Tzu
