"The man who asks a question is a fool for a minute, the man who does not ask is a fool for life."
The inspirational message for the self employed from this quote is:
Confucius quotes the man who asks, teaches many people are afraid of making a fool of themselves by asking a question about something that they do not know. They do not want other people to know about their ignorance. The implication is that they do not learn or expand their knowledge if they don’t ask questions. Thus they do remain a fool for the rest of their lives. The Confucius Quotes teach us that it is better to be a fool for a short while than being a fool forever.
