Wisdom of Socrates

In ancient Greece, Socrates was reputed to hold
knowledge in high esteem.
One day an acquaintance met the great philosopher and
said, "Do you know what I just heard about your friend?"
Hold on a minute," Socrates replied. "Before telling
me anything, I'd like you to pass a little test. It's called the
Triple Filter Test."
Triple filter?"
That's right," Socrates continued. "Before you talk to
me about my friend, it might be a good idea to take a moment and
filter what you're going to say. That's why I call it the triple
filter test.
The first filter is TRUTH. Have you made absolutely
sure that what
you are about to tell me is true?"
No," the man said, "actually I just heard about it and..."
All right," said Socrates. "So you don't really know if it's true or not.
Now let's try the second filter, the filter of GOODNESS. Is what you
are about to tell me about my friend something good?"
No, on the contrary..."
So," Socrates continued, "you want to tell me something bad about
him, but you're not certain it's true. You may still pass the test though, because there's one filter left: the filter of
USEFULNESS. Is what you want to tell me about my friend going to be useful to me?"
No, not really."
Well," concluded Socrates, "if what you want to tell me is neither
true nor good nor even useful, why tell it to me at all?"
This is why Socrates was a great philosopher & held in
such high esteem


Fabulous! If only we all could follow the same example.

As I had said

Videsee's preaching and practice are two different things .

The story no doubt has a good moral but the tragedy is that the story teller is not willing to put it into practice .

Some people simply grow old but they never grow up , but then after all growing old is mandatory but growing up is emotional


PS You removed me from your ignore list .Commisserations .

First of all 'Dude' this is NOT my saying. I am NOT Socrates (sheesh some people!) nor the Storyteller.

By the way, as usual I am here to guide you in your attempts at using English!

Incorrest spelling.

com·mis·er·a·tion Pronunciation Key (k-mz-rshn)
n.
The feeling or expression of pity or sorrow.


LASTLY, if you understand the correct usage of the language, you will see that I said I have put you in The Cone of Silence. Not an ignore list. That was your inference!

Ok Dude. I said Prozac twice daily. Sigh.....these mental patients are such a challenge.........ok Dude, you can change back to your other personality.
No one at echarcha will mind. They know you are sick. Come lets go quietly.
