Two,-Wise or Fools? King Solomon Blog

Rudy u Martinka

When should we argue with a fool or deal with him or her so that credence will not be given to what they say?

The Chicago Tribune columnist article titled: Mike Pence debases the vice presidency; Kamala Harris can elevate, begs the question in my mind about two ancient proverbs that seemingly contradict each other and an idiom to consider.

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate the ancient wisdom verses and an idiom to readers need to in their minds whether to decide whether or not to answer the writer’s opinions or argue so as not to give credence to the writer’s opinion.

King Solomon

Answer not a fool according to his folly,

lest you be like him yourself.

Answer a fool according to his folly,

lest he bewise in his own eyes. (Proverbs 26:4,5)

Idiom

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder (Ancient Greek Philosophers)
