Foolish Quotations

Better a witty fool than a foolish wit. - William Shakespeare
Better a witty fool than a foolish wit.
William Shakespeare

Vulnerability is the essence of romance. It's the art of being uncalculated, the willingness to look foolish, the courage to say, 'This is me, and I'm interested in you enough to show you my flaws with the hope that you may embrace me for all that I am but, more important, all that I am not.'
Ashton Kutcher

A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer.
Bruce Lee

Stay hungry, stay foolish.
Steve Jobs

The foolish man conceives the idea of 'self.' The wise man sees there is no ground on which to build the idea of 'self;' thus, he has a right conception of the world and well concludes that all compounds amassed by sorrow will be dissolved again, but the truth will remain.
