Those who fail to find me harm themselves;
all who hate me love death.
Those who hate wisdom — harm themselves.
When a man thinks that he can navigate life without wisdom — he hurts himself. It’s amazing to see men think that they’re smart enough or have had enough life experience that they don’t need wisdom’s advice.
Those who despise wisdom are in love with death. In other words, they are so dark that they embrace the destructive force of stupidity. It’s hard to believe that anyone would enjoy abuse, but that is exactly what some people want. It’s not reasonable, but it’s true. It’s a spiritual disorder. It’s irrational; yet, it is very common.
Stop hurting yourself.
