Spend time listening to fools, just to know what you are up against

.. but listen quietly please.
Nothing gets people more riled up than religion and people of other religions talking about them. I have been reading comments at Amazon.com on a book about a religion. It shall be nameless here because I don't want to do what the author probably intend to do, use controversy to draw attention to itself. But from the comments themselves, you can draw your own opinion of the people who are espousing them. Undoubtedly, the more ignorant the comment, the more entertaining. The problem is, the majority of the comments are entertaining.
I think the virtue of listening to fools is to know how not to sound like one.

A great master begins with the mastery of one

Sort of the opposite of the phrase, "jack of all trades, master of none."
Was "Journey of Jack of all Trades begins with the mastery one."

People who don't want to try something because they are afraid they are not good at it, will always wait. But when is someone good at it the first time, all the time?
So try. Be good at it. Repeat.

Idiots must understand the difference between being righteous and being right.

Being righteous sometime means being wrong sometime, too. Being right means you are right all the time. Being Right doesn't mean you are right, just as being Left doesn't mean you're wrong.Being a right Idiot means being right. Being a Right Idiot means your twice it An idiot doesn't know how they got it right. An righteous idiot doesn't know how.
