“The greatest fools are ofttimes more clever

than the men who laugh at them.”


George R.R. Martin



“There are two ways to be fooled.

One is to believe what isn’t true;

the other is to refuse to believe what is true.”


Søren Kierkegaard


Narcissus ‘Cragford’


“Fools put trust in promises;

The wise in action.”


A. Spencer



“The greatest lesson in life

is to know that even fools are right sometimes.”

“The whole problem with the world

is that fools and fanatics

are always so certain of themselves,

and wiser people so full of doubts.”

and he who would not see it

should live alone and smash his mirror.”
