My thinking is so like Vizzini’s sometimes. I think myself into a corner and get nowhere.
While I was posting this, Father, independently, was writing his own post. When I read it I shrieked because it fit the video perfectly. So, he added the video to his post and I’m adding the quotation to mine:
Wisdom does not consist in speaking; wisdom means knowing the time
when you should speak and when to reply as necessary. Make it seem that
you know nothing, although you have knowledge, so as to avoid great
distress; for he who appears to have knowledge lays burdens on himself.
Do not boast about your knowledge, for no one knows anything.
h/t Fr. Demetrios Carellas
