There is no help for the fool


   One of the great and universal truths of life:  One cannot 
   help a fool.  A fool is his own worst enemy.  You cannot 
   save a fool from himself.  He will destroy himself no matter 
   what you do. 

   A fool will never listen to sense or wisdom or reason.  He 
   will never react favorably to the truth.  Truth will only make 
   him angry.  Fools only talk to other fools.  They only speak 
   the language of other fools.  In the presence of a fool a wise 
   man keeps his mouth shut. 


   There are many proverbs on fools:



   Fools rush in where angels fear to tread. 

                                                Pope 


   
   A fool and his money are soon parted.




   Hope and expectation are a fool's income.




   Fools live but do not learn.




   Fools make those inquiries afterwards which wise men make 
   before.




   A fool is never wrong. 




   A fool's fortune is his misfortune.                            




   A fool's mouth is his destruction, 
     and his lips are the snare of his soul.

                                       Prov 18:7



   A fool has no delight in understanding, 
    But in expressing his own heart.  

                                      Prov 18:2



   Speak not in the ears of a fool,
    For he will despise the wisdom of thy words.

                                      Prov 23:9


  
   As a dog returns to his own vomit, 
    So a fool repeats his folly. 
   
                                  Prov 26:11




   Though you grind a fool in a mortar with a pestle along with 
         crushed grain, 
    Yet his foolishness will not depart from him.    
    
                                                   Prov 27:22
