A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer. – Bruce Lee
Meaning of this Quote
Wise men always try to learn whatever they can from everything they come across in this world. They always try to learn more, know more, and there is no showing off in the process.
Wise men might even talk for hours with people with a foolish question just to learn what they are trying to say. What perspective of the man has made him asked that question? What if the question people are considering to be a foolish one is a wise one!?
Therefore, a wise man will always try to understand what the question actually asks them about. Not only with the problems, but wise men also keep trying to learn as much as they can from everything they come across.
However, a foolish man will be all talk and less work. They, on the other hand, will keep talking like they know everything; these men are the ones who know least about the world but will never miss a chance to tell you how great they are.
Sometimes they get so busy describing their legends, that they forget what they have told earlier to you. This way, they get trapped in their made-up stories only.
These men, when asked something wiser, will blabber at first, and then they will try to change the topic rather than trying to learn the answer. So, what you want to become is always your choice. Choose wisely.
