    The fool in the Bible is the one who does not believe in God.--->" The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” (Psalm 14:1). They lack the foundation for Wisdom. --->"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.(Proverbs 1:7)". It has nothing to do with a low stature in life. --->"Better a poor but wise youth than an old but foolish king who no longer knows how to heed a warning.(Ecclesiastes: 4:13)

    Anyone can gain wisdom and an excellent way to do so is by reciting the rosary each day with care, and doing fasting.

    Being foolish is the opposite of being wise and neither have anything to do with stature. Those with either high or low stature can be fools.

    It probably means fools don't yell loud enough the secret wisdom password at the gate.

    Proverbs 24:7

    Wisdom is too lofty for a fool;

    He does not open his mouth in the gate.

    Low "stature" is not the same as being a fool. Anyone capable of writing the question you just wrote is capable of increasing in knowledge, wisdom and stature. Decide what you want to do in life, and find out what steps you need to take in order to be able to do it. Then DO it!
