Idealism is impracticality and idealism increases in direct proportion to one’s distance from the problem. Idealism will not at all help you to solve the problems. Shunning away from the crux of the problem will land you nowhere and therefore, an idealist is not encouraged by the masses. Idealism lives in a world of fantasy. ‘An idealist is one who on noticing that a rose smells better than a cabbage concludes that is it also more nourishing ‘said HL Mencken.
A man gazing at the stars is certainly at the mercy of the puddles of the road. If this truth dawns on him, then he would come out of his idealism and fantasy and look at the practicality of life. An idealist is a person who helps other people to be prosperous and therefore, shed idealism and look at life practically. Because even if you fly high on the clouds, you will have to, one day or other, land on the surface.
