Foolishness and knowledge are two different things that people frequently put together. But foolishness is the incompetence to learn not the incapacity to discern. People need to identify the difference because the lack of considerate can lead to mistake and treating people falsely. A very vital example is when somebody does something that you do not favor of. My friend ran away, is that a lack of knowledge or foolishness? It is in fact foolishness because knowledge told him not to do it but he decided against his knowledge. Now in this condition my outlook determined how I reacted and since it was foolishness I got upset but then understood it wasn't his fault that foolishness overtook him. If I confounded it for a lack of knowledge I would not have blamed him at all, but my indulgent the difference helped me control the attitude I had which in turn resolute the outcome. Knowledge and foolishness are things that you are born with but can be enhanced upon over time but it takes a lot of hard work and attention. So when dealing with knowledge and foolishness has an accepting approach and things will turn out, maybe not as you want them, but it will make your life very much easier.

I think that people should want and value knowledge, and that people should always want to strive for better. People should want to aspire to greatness. In the words of Data from "Star Trek: Next Generation": "I always aspire to be better than what I am because that is what I am programmed for." People should always want to be more than what they are, and know more than what they know. People should want to learn something new everyday. The day that you stop learning is the day that you might want to give up living.

Yes, he was, and sometimes I use him as an example because he has what humanity strives for, and yet, he wants to know what it's like to be human. Deep down, humanity should always strive for more, and humans should always strive for greatness.

Knowledge means knowing something and foolishness for me is like a person is crazy or brainless. I believe that i know a lot of things but there are times that i do foolish things and i am so crazy and insane. If your friend ran away, it doesn't necessarily means he lacks knowledge i guess. It depends on the circumstances why he needs to ran away. Why is he running away? Why am i crazy or foolish at times? I remember i my foolishness in at work when at times my manager looking for me and i am so tired so i hide under a table and he did not see me. That was fun! When i was in college my mother did not allow me to go out at night so i use the window to escape. Knowing something or knowledge is important as well like the national geographic motto ...IGNORANCE IS BORING...sounds cool. Have fun foolish sometimes...i think you are :) PEACE
