I’m an optimist. I like to see the best in people. I believe human beings are inherently good. I believe people are capable of achieving far more than they believe. I encourage tolerance, kindness, and open minds.

That said, knowing this one simple fact may prove beneficial in getting through life:

Idiots are everywhere.
(And sometimes we are those idiots.)

That probably won’t change.

But what can change is who we are and how we act when we cross paths with idiots. Because, sadly, we often let other idiots turn us into idiots without thinking.

The more we resist the urge to let others control our emotions and our actions in a negative way, the less likely we are to let idiots turn us into idiots (and the happier and more in control of our lives we will be).

Our attitude and how we handle ourselves is always our responsibility.

We may not always know what to do when we cross paths with idiots, but we can always choose the type of person we want to be.

And if you choose not to let an idiot turn you into an idiot, that’s one less idiot there will be in the world.

Never argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.” — Mark Twain

Never wrestle with pigs. You both get dirty and the pig likes it.” — George Bernard Shaw

Stop attaching so much weight to being right. In the grand scheme of things, being right is insignificant compared to being happy.” — Deepak Chopra

“Be selective in your battles sometimes peace is better than being right.” — Ritu Ghatourey

One less idiot.
