A beautiful lie or a bitter truth

Tell the stupid man the truth, and he will hate you. Show him his mistakes, and he will hate you. Offer him to work for the good of him and the world around him, and he will hate you. Show him by example that you can be better, and he will declare you his enemy.
Promise a stupid man that he will become a hero without effort, and he will love you. Tell him that he is the chosen one, and he will make you his idol. Treat him with a dish of sweet lies and false promises, and you will become his god.
Do the same with a wise man and get the opposite result. Do it with yourself and see what you believed – beautiful lies or bitter truth that contains wisdom.
