So I was scrolling on tiktok like I always do in my spare time, when I am either not making noise on noise.cash or writing and reading articles here on read.cash. Suddenly I came across this video of man who told a story with a very important and wonderful message. Never argue with a f**l to prove your point, they just never listen and they will never agree instead they will bring you to their level and beat you at it.
The video wasn’t very long, and the man made sure he pointed out important lessons so as to enable anyone that watched that video to understand the true importance of wisdom.
Here is the story
The donkey 🐎 and the tiger 🐅
Once upon a sunny afternoon in the jungle of the animal kingdom, the donkey and the tiger had a heated argument.
the grass is blue - the donkey
No of course not the grass is green can’t you see it clearly - the tiger
oh no you are so dumb the grass is blue it has always been from the beginning of time.. said the donkey.
No you are wrong my friend, the grass is green I know this for a fact - the tiger
The argument got heated up very quickly and so they decided to take the matter to the palace of the king .. the lion. Immediately they entered the palace the donkey rushed quickly to the presence of the king and shouted …
my king .. my king .. you know the grass is blue right ?can you please tell the tiger that he is dumb for thinking the grass is green
the lion - well if you feel without any doubt that the grass is blue then it is as you say it is.
thank you your highness, now can you please punish the tiger, he belittles me, doubts me, annoys me, please punish him.
in that case I hereby declare that the tiger be punished ..3 days of silence said the king lion.
After the donkey left in joy the tiger went to the lion and asked him this..
the tiger- my king I know for a fact that you are wise and strong and I also know for a fact that you know that the grasses in the field are green.
yes I sure do - the lion
so why then did you punish me if you knew I was right - the tiger
well the reason I punished you wasn’t because you challenged the donkey nor because you were wrong .. the reason you were punished was because.. being the smart animal that you are .. higher and bigger in the hierarchy of things you let yourself be associated with trivial matters like this and what’s worse you even brought it to me.. you went so low as to argue with a donkey .. don’t you think you deserve to be punished for that ?
The tiger left with his tails between his legs. The lesson in this story is never allow yourself to stoop so low to a f**l’s level because they would make you look like an idiot at the end.
There is a saying ..
“never argue with a fool he would bring you down to his level and beat you at it” .. because no matter what you say and no matter what evidence you bring he would never listen because he only listens to his own thoughts…
So when next you have an heated argument being a person ask yourself is the person worth my time of the day ? If I present enough evidence can I convince this person that I am right and more importantly will I learn from this person in the cause of this argument? If all that questions result to a NO .. then just avoid an argument with them, allow them think they have won it is better than way .. at least that is what I think .. don’t you agree ?
Thank you for your time my friends do check out my amazing sponsors..
Check them out !!!!!!!
There is no sense in arguing with a person you can't learn from. The best thing to do is to be quiet and allow them think they are right.
