The crowd`s foolishness consists of the wisdom and irony of every single person filling it... That is, wisdom, gathered in the crowd, becomes foolishness, and foolishness, fallen to pieces, becomes the ironic, all knowing wisdom...
I recommend paying attention to banal truths. Intelligence is the ability to understand the deepest meaning of obvious things. Dichotomous idealistic thinking, enslaved by forms, is unable to understand or see the obvious; it clings to form.
Wisdom, having conquered pride, finds love and begins to learn from everyone. Wisdom is learning from five girls and an older man, the book and the ant, the dog and maggots. Wisdom loves everything. And everything that exists, he believes it is useful in a given situation. But wisdom does not take everything. Wisdom separates the soup from the flies. If wisdom need flies, she takes of the flies. If wisdom needs soup, she takes soup.
They tell you, " Well, that's great. It's free. It's awesome! You will earn money and get a lot of fun..."And that replies them is a clever man? "No, thank you. I'm good, and the best is the enemy of good".
Vices and sins do not need to be afraid, you just need to know that it is a poison and a source of problems. "Why should I trouble?"- thinks a clever man. And all sorts of silly sentences says, "no, Thank you".
Most people wither with age, but there are those who flourish. These are the ones who get smarter with age. When a man becomes clever, he gets rid of fear, pride and ignorance, the sources of all human misery.
