"The Wise man speaks because he has something to say; The Fool, because he has to say something"

Paraphrasing Plato, there.

It feels very in line with our latest sermon.

Let's discuss?

Wisdom cant be imparted, only experienced, so I say the words of the wise man fall on deaf ears but if you act the fool then do it with enthusiasm!

This guns for hire, even if we're just dancing in the dark.

Wisdom is what you experience when you look at yourself and realise you are a fool.

Convictions are more dangerous foes of truth than lies.

Plato would approve, and wholeheartedly agree.

V-Tog wrote: How much less tiring must it be to admit from the start that we aren’t omniscient? How much more productive for both our own journey and those of others if we can find it in ourselves be vulnerable and open enough to say – not “I am going to teach you this” – but “let’s explore this together?” How much more respect and co-operation arises when instead of decreeing “I know what’s best for you” we ask “what do you need and how can I help"?


I'm not very interested these days in philosophical nature of wisdom. It's a bit useless to me at the end of the day. In agreement of what V-Tog has said in the sermon here, perhaps its more important to ponder on the practical point of what wisdom constructively affects toward the people we're involved in; the way we interact with others and how we contribute to their lives on their level.

It seems that I know that I know.
What I would like to see is the 'I' that knows me when I know that I know that I know.

"Those who know, do not speak; those who speak do not know." —Lao Tzu

"Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues." —Proverbs 17:28

"There is a fine line between insight and insanity." —Me


Listen well: Everything I tell you is a lie. Every question I ask is a trick.
You will find no truth in me.

Sounds like its about freedom and courage over indecisiveness and fear. The 'wise' person being closer to their true selves in a more full and representative expression of themselves, while the fool is stuck in some artifice feigning actual identity by reinforcing a facade to others and themselves over and over.

Leading to maybe, because of this, the wise person talking about how things seem to them (therefore relating and building a potential for empathy and understanding), rather then judging others... for that would be trying to remove the mask from others, as if they 'must' have a mask, for its their own greatest fear!

Anyway, that is how I see it :silly: :pinch: #witticism
