The Benefit Of Absence?

The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.

William Shakespeare

I am a special breed of fool
Who does not think himself wise
Just an ordinary gullible chump
Content to be sustained by lies


Knowledge is useless
Without the wisdom to apply it


Naani: Through the lens

Before you raise a finger
Consider
Foreign matter in the eye
Could potentially be an aid


“He who has a why to live can bear almost any how.”

Friedrich Nietzsche

“He who can live with a bear has a how and a why”

Nriedrich Fietzsche

The act of digging
Creates a hole
As well as a hill

Nothing does not exist
The absence
itself is something

The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.

Socrates

I am the smartest man alive
And it ain’t no thing
I am merely willing to admit
I know absolutely nothing


To be wise in a world such as this
You would be the thing amiss


We could eradicate hump day
Simply by calling in sick on Friday

  2. Love your meanderings on wisdom. I was especially struck by your poem: “The act of digging / Creates a hole / As well as a hill.” How true! In our great wisdom or lack thereof, we create more problems for ourselves.

    1. Thank you.
      I’ve seen so many of these Wednesday wisdom posts around I thought I would try my hand.
      Simplicity on the depth. Seems a few people enjoyed that one.

  3. Shakespeare – the first recorded definition of the Dunning-Kruger effect!! A wonderful mix of poems and quotes on a topic that should be on everyone’s mind. Sadly too many are blank…
