Prudent – Acting with or showing care and thought for the future.
“He who is prudent and lies in wait for an enemy who is not, will be victorious.” – Sun Tzu
“The prudence of the best heads is often defeated by the tenderness of the best hearts.” – Henry Fielding
“A fool shows his annoyance at once, but a prudent man overlooks an insult.” – Bible
The first quote is saying that someone who has their plans already laid out and cares about them will be successful. I think that first, you need to actually care about what you want to do with your future. If you don’t care about anything then you won’t be successful. If your room is dirty and you should probably clean it but you don’t really care that it’s dirty then you won’t get it done, you know? The second quote I think is saying that sometimes kind hearts beat smart minds. Sometimes we only follow what our mind thinks and we don’t think about what our heart is telling us to do. Your head might be leading you in one direction and then your heart might be telling you to do something else. I think it’s always good to follow your heart and not always your mind. The last quote is my favorite. It’s saying that a prudent man will overlook an insult and a fool just acts out and doesn’t think because he doesn’t care. A prudent man can overlook things like that because he cares about the future and he knows that he just needs to move on because some things don’t matter. If someone says something about you or to you that hurts you, don’t let it get to you and move on because there’s better things to care about in this world then foolish people that their only care in the world is to try and take you down to make themselves feel better and that’s straight up foolishness. Don’t let anyone get in the way of your self esteem or your future goals in life. My final words to you are don’t be foolish, be prudent and overlook the foolishness because you know you’re better than them.
