Folly is a divine state

There, doesn’t that make you feel better?  However, note that in being a divine state, you are no more entitled to be proud than ashamed of it.

‘It is all too often forgotten that the ancient symbol for the prenascence of the world is a fool, and that foolishness, being a divine state, is not a condition to be either proud or ashamed of.’
