Sirach 22:8
He that telleth a word to him that heareth not, is like one that waketh a man out of a deep sleep.
Explaining something to a fool is like explaining it to a sleepy person; when you have finished, he'll say, What was that again?
He who tells a story to a fool tells it to a drowsy man; and at the end he will say, “What is it?”
He who tells a story to a fool tells it to a drowsy man; and at the end he will say, “What is it?”
He that telleth wisdom to a fool, speaketh with a man sleeping; and in the end of the telling he shall say, Who is this?
