The danger of approaching a fool

Don’t approach a goat from the front, a horse from the back, or a fool from any side. Jewish proverb

What this quote means is that there are certain things you shouldn’t do based on a certain set of rules, usually at the expense of someone else. The quote appears to have three warnings, but the first two are there to set the context for the third, to show that approaching a fool from any side is a dangerous endeavor.
