Angels or wise persons are generally careful about moving a step forward in their life. They do not want to take any undue risk in anything. They will first scrutinize the merits and demerits of the matter, and then decide to act upon it, as and when they become absolutely sure about its safety and success.
On the other hand, the fools, who are generally devoid of common sense, foresight or experience in life, are found to jump into anything, sometimes involving danger or risk, without applying their mind in the right direction. Evidently, they suffer the consequences due to their own folly.
Hence one should always remain alert and examine properly the pros and cons of anything that he is going to do or handle. Like the wise or the angels, he should also examine the details of the case, before he considers becoming involved in it.
There is a proverb in English: ‘Look before you leap’ (said by Pope). The title proverb is world famous, and is a very useful lesson conveying a message which is acceptable to all-the wise and the unwise as well.
