Village idiots, stones, and wells

From an email I received today:

The village idiot threw a stone into the well; it took a hundred wise men to get it out.

I’ve seen this attributed to multiple cultures–Arab, Armenian.  I’m sure many other cultures have a similar saying.

I will let you think of the principles behind this saying and apply it to your favorite area of human endeavor.

Suggestion:  if you find yourself throwing stones . . . .
