WISE MEN SPEAK BECAUSE THEY HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY; FOOLS BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO SAY SOMETHING
Every man is wise in his own way and also foolish. A wise man is the one who has his destination in his mind, is aware of the good and bad, gets up early in the morning and all other things one could imagine a wise man doing, while on the other hand a foolish is the one who’s vision about his path is blurry and is not sure of which way to pic, being aware of the good and bad he does the wrong and is never up early on time.
As Aristotle had said:
"The wise man does not expose himself needlessly to danger, since there are few things for which he cares sufficiently; but he is willing in great crises, to give even his life, knowing that under certain conditions it is not worthwhile to live."
Wise vs the Fool:
A wise man also sometimes make foolish mistakes, but the only thing that differentiates the wise with the foolish here is that the wise would not put his head down and cry, he would try to correct himself, while the foolish will cry and let go of it. A wise man doesn’t care about the feelings of others. Instead, they continue to improve themselves by accepting criticism. These are the people who will go the farthest in life, because they are always growing, and can tackle new challenges with open minds.
High Learning Capacity of the Wise:
A wise individual has very high capacity of learning new and interesting things. If he is wise he was probably intelligent, but not necessarily. He may have collected multiple experiences over many years to obtain his high standard. A young individual can definitely be wise if he is highly intelligent he will have learned from his experiences and mistakes. An old man or just a young individual who has not learned from any of his life experiences and mistakes will not be wise or intelligent.
Bruce lee once said:
"A wise man can learn from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer."
Fools are never consulted:
Wise is a word that signifies a person who has a lot of knowledge and wisdom. This is why most elder people are familiar with this word as life has made them pass through tough situations making them take wise decisions. We always ask a question from a wise person because we think they always have the answer to our questions that looks difficult to us. While few men listen to the wise man and very many listens to the fool. A fool wishes to obtain respect from others. The mistakes of the fool are known to the world and makes fool of himself in front of others, but not to himself. The mistakes of the wise man are known to himself, but not to the world.
The heart of a fool is in his mouth unlike a heart of a wise person. They think that they know everything. They believe in the gossips of people and spread it like wild fire, they do not care enough of what others have to say. A fool wishes to gain respect from others and they would often go to great lengths to prove their worth to others. While a wise man knows that he does not need to be approved by others and continues living his life knowing the difference between right and wrong.
In the end, the main difference between a wise man and a fool is process. The wise men knows that life is a process and a series of actions and change and it needs to be handled carefully while a fool does not care and does not take life seriously.
Mehmet Murat lldan once said:
"A wise quote can only change a wise man! Therefore, wise sayings are for the wise men, not for the fools! The sunflower turns its face towards the sun, the fools, towards the darkness!"
