There was a clever man in a town. The people of the town respected him much for his cleverliness. There was also a fool in the same town. People didn’t like him. Nobody was allowing him to sit with them. Fe was kept at arm’s length.
Once the fool decided to see the clever man to know why is he being appreciated. He went to his house. The clever man was alone in his house.
“Sir, you are alone here . How can you spend time by being lonely ? How can you tolerate?” the fool asked the wise.
“Friend, you have mistaken. I was not alone here. Till your arrival I had good company” replied the wise.
MORAL: It is better to be lonely than to be with a fool.
