You can always tell a real friend: when you've made a fool of yourself he doesn't feel you've done a permanent job.
Laurence J. Peter
If we don't plant the right things, we will reap the wrong things. It goes without saying. And you don't have to be, you know, a brilliant biochemist and you don't have to have an IQ of 150. Just common sense tells you to be kind, ninny, fool. Be kind.
A lot of good arguments are spoiled by some fool who knows what he is talking about.
Miguel de Unamuno
A fool flatters himself, a wise man flatters the fool.
Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
Any fool can have bad luck; the art consists in knowing how to exploit it.
Any fool knows that bravado is always a cover-up for insecurity. That's the truth. And on that note, I'll say goodnight. God love you.

In Shakespeare's world, characters cannot trust their senses. Is the ghost in Hamlet true and truthful, or is it a demon, tempting young Hamlet into murderous sin? Is Juliet dead or merely sleeping? Does Lear really stand at the edge of a great cliff? Or has the Fool deceived him to save his life?
A fool sees not the same tree that a wise man sees.
I have always observed that to succeed in the world one should seem a fool, but be wise.
Charles de Montesquieu
You can fool some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time, but you can only make a monkey out of the voters every four years!
Everyone calls himself a friend, but only a fool relies on it; nothing is commoner than the name, nothing rarer than the thing.
Jean de La Fontaine
It is the fool who thinks he cannot be fooled.
Only a fool permits the letter of the law to override the spirit in the heart. Do not let a piece of paper stand in the way of true love and headlines.
The greatest obstacle to being heroic is the doubt whether one may not be going to prove one's self a fool; the truest heroism is to resist the doubt; and the profoundest wisdom, to know when it ought to be resisted, and when it be obeyed.
