As a fool and a plebiscite, I find myself doing the stupidest things. Wisdom is needed, and I hope to share in this journey with you all. Let's share books, excerpts, ideas, platitudes, etc, in order to collectively grow and do better for ourselves.

I'll start. I read through the book of Proverbs and wrote down some bits that help me not be a fucking moron.

>The soul of the sluggard craves in vain, but the soul of the diligent is amply satisfied
>Walk with wise men and you will become wise, but the companion of fools will fare badly
>He who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him takes care to chastise him
>The heart knows it's own bitterness, and in its joy no one else shares
>Sometimes a way seems right to a man, but the end of it leads to death!
>Even a fool, if he keeps silent, is considered wise; if he closes his lips, intelligent
>It is better to dwell in the wilderness than with a quarrelsome or vexatious wife
And my favorite,
>like an open city with no defenses is the man with no check on his feelings

>Walk with wise men and you will become wise, but the companion of fools will fare badly
What happens when a fool and a wise man walk together?

I'd imagine the fool would learn some, and the wise man, provided he's wise enough, would learn from the fool.

Though most likely they wouldn't be able to stand each other.

eh the fool would laugh at the wise man and the wise man would not bother with the fool

Then they'd laugh together.
