Once, a professor embarked on a journey in a small boat, seeking adventure and intellectual stimulation. Curiosity led him to question the boat’s captain about various subjects.
Professor: “Do you know Biology, Ecology, Zoology, Geography, Physiology?”
Captain: “No,” came the captain’s simple response to each inquiry.
Professor, with a hint of arrogance: “What do you even know on Earth? You might perish due to illiteracy.”
As fate would have it, the boat encountered trouble, developing a leak that threatened to sink it. In the face of danger, the Captain turned the tables on the Professor.
Captain: “Do you know swiminology and escapology from sharkology?”
Professor, now on the receiving end, admitted his lack of knowledge.
A sailor chimed in: “Well, you better learn because sharkology and crocodilogy are poised to devour you—headology and all, thanks to your mouthology.”
The moral of the story is simple yet profound: never underestimate others based solely on your own talents or knowledge. Everyone possesses unique skills necessary for their survival, and judging others prematurely can lead to unexpected consequences. Embrace humility, recognizing that others may hold valuable knowledge and expertise that you may lack.
