My most significant lesson today

It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt. -Mark Twain.

How easy for people to say things just to intimidate somebody who they think is below their status BUT by opening their mouths, they are only proving their utmost ignorance. I have to accept hearing such great nonsense made me laugh and smiling even until now.

It is also a reminder to me that having the humility to accept one’s ignorance is a virtue. Only when we accept that we start to learn and grow away from mediocrity.
