The donkey told the tiger, "The grass is
The tiger replied, "No, the grass is green ."
The discussion became heated, and the two
decided to submit the issue to arbitration, so
they approached the lion.
As they approached the lion on his throne, the
donkey started screaming: ′′Your Highness,
isn't it true that the grass is blue?"
The lion replied: "If you believe it is true,
the grass is blue."
The donkey rushed forward and continued: ′′The
tiger disagrees with me, contradicts me and
annoys me. Please punish him."
The king then declared: ′′The tiger will be
punished with 3 days of silence."
The donkey jumped with joy and went on his
way, content and repeating ′′The grass is
blue, the grass is blue..."
The tiger asked the lion, "Your Majesty, why
have you punished me, after all, the grass is
The lion replied, ′′You've known and seen the
grass is green."
The tiger asked, ′′So why do you punish me?"
The lion replied, "That has nothing to do with
the question of whether the grass is blue or
green. The punishment is because it is
degrading for a brave, intelligent creature
like you to waste time arguing with an ass,
and on top of that, you came and bothered me
with that question just to validate something
you already knew was true!"
The biggest waste of time is arguing with the
fool and fanatic who doesn't care about truth
or reality, but only the victory of his
beliefs and illusions. Never waste time on
discussions that make no sense. There are
people who, for all the evidence presented to
them, do not have the ability to understand.
Others who are blinded by ego, hatred and
resentment, and the only thing that they want
is to be right even if they arenít.
When IGNORANCE SCREAMS, intelligence moves on.
