You Can Tell

You can tell whether a man is clever by his answers. You can tell whether a man is wise by his questions. Naguib Mahfouz

People don't notice whether it's winter or summer when they're happy.
Anton Chekhov

When hungry, eat your rice; when tired, close your eyes. Fools may laugh at me, but wise men will know what I mean.

I think that I find a person who is willing to listen to what I have to say is even wiser. How often does that happen these days?
