The Greater Insult

A thought popped into my head about insults which resulted in a question.

Which is worse, finding someone’s weak spot and making fun or finding someone’s dreams and making fun?

As soon as I asked the question I knew my answer.  I’d rather you make fun of everything I am self conscious about rather than hitting my dreams.  It reminds me of a short poem by Yeats.

This poem was used by the great Ken Robinson to illustrate how students walk into our classrooms everyday.
