Motley fool

We can’t start perfectly and beautifully. Don’t be afraid of being a fool; start as a fool.

  1. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Love that quote!

    A great quote for da approaching new year! ๐Ÿ™‚

    We all start by moving small stones before we start moving big stones ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Though a trifle off-track this reminds me of a post/article I had written long back:

    ” …This is not merely the ability to make others laugh, but to laugh oneself as well and most importantly the ability to laugh at oneself, because you can make the world laugh with you, only if you are comfortable with the world laughing at you.”

    A fool has nothing to fear. It is others who are most afraid and they have to stretch that extra to make things ‘fool-proof.’

  3. Assalam-o-Alaikum!

    haha Somehow reminds me of Shakespeare’s line in Twelfth Night: “Better to be a witty fool than a foolish wit”
