The only time you should be ashamed of being the fool is when you don’t realize that you’ve been the fool. In the realization that you’ve been the fool what you’re really saying is that you made a mistake, you recognize it, and you’re attempting to correct it. How could this possibly be shameful? This is a wonderful thing.

Rejoice when you see that you’ve been a fool. You’ve done a wonderful work. Now stop being a fool by judging yourself a fool.
