Ecclesiastes – Chapter 10
Here Solomon contrasts the fool versus that of the wise man.Unexpected the fool arrives at the high places, while the wise are put in low places. Solomon points out that this is evil, and that the right way of things is when the wise is restored to leadership and the fool to the low places. I think it was Einstein that says, the wise know just how much they do not know. It is nice to be wise and also humble, Socrates was always thinking about how much more there was to know, he always was posing questions rather than answering, listening rather than speaking.
It is nice to have that same heart. Only the fools boast, the wise listen.
