When you understand others, it is intelligence,
When you understand yourself, it is true wisdom
He who knows others is wise.
He who knows himself is enlightened.
When truth presents itself, the wise person see the light, takes it in, and makes adjustments. The fool tries to adjust the truth so he does not have to adjust to it.
The fools judge people from their own narrow perspective, the wise is intellectually placed. He judges people from others perspective as well. The greatest sign of being wise is to engage a thought without agreeing to it.
Wise know the process of coming to logic. Fools make judgements.
Wise are full of questions.fools only know to copy them.
A wise person is quick to identify truth, the manipulative person pretends that he understands truth and the fool is happy that that the truth is a lie.
Fools always settle for lies, they find it soothing to sow it’s seed, fertilise it and cultivate lies which they can believe.
Fools settle for lies that’s why they have a herd mentality. Fools derive pleasure being fooled believing that they are wise.
Wise people are always leaders with values. Leaders are always alone… Bcoz they think differently, work differently they have a distinct identity which they protect. They are thinkers and are surrounded by thoughts if not people. Surrounded by thoughts they are never alone.
Thats why the wise man can always be found alone.
The weak are always found in crowd.
The weak always look for people who are like them, who they can influence, they keep changing views. They are laggards, they are followers and have a herd mentality. They are part of the crowd and they follow the crowd as well, because they cannot create anything of their own.
The wise have an identity, the weak harps on imitating an identity.
