"A great philosopher I read a lot is Socrates, and he says, 'It is better to be refuted than to refute.' So if anyone out there is saying, 'Hey, you're full of it.' Sometimes there may be a little truth in that. It might be worth listening to."

Very true! Always listen, but never dwell.
 
So nice, and so true.

True, everyone has something good to teach us, even the humble pessoamais, a hug. Zippor yourself, my son and I love your movies!
 
everytime i see Hugh Jackman i think of Wolverine... man how awesome he is.

So many people say that because some people r
though most people say it because they don't no how to respond so "Your full of it is the easy way out." HUGH YOUR RIGHT ON THE MONEY :-) 
 
"Can you tell the world what legacy would you leave it with? How would you like to be remembered? Many a number of famous men and women only realized that fame and fortune is not really what count at all but how life is lived...they come to terms only its too late, at the brink of death. Give us your wisdom, Hugh J."
 
socrates is nice, so is marcus aurelis writings on stoicism :)
 
Ferdi DelaPaz, some people can find that in what they do, can be a life well lived. It is about what you do with the life you have. Famous or not, this goes to the heart, not just what we do.
Meggs
 
Oh pardon me when I text I don't care much for them 
 
So, +Michael Adair, was that comment the SUM total of your opinion on anything and everything? I, too, fear for our future. /sarcasm [I'm just sayin'.]

In any case, it's an interesting quote. It's important to take all valid criticisms seriously. That's how we improve ourselves.

I think reading up on a little ancient wisdom and philosophy could do us all some good.

Truth is the utmost of all :-) 
 
Couldn't it also mean that the one doing the refuting is only revealing his own negative nature,
 
I agree with you Megan Huddle
Meggs
 
Thanks :-) 
 
My pleasure.Can we be friends?-Megan huddle
 
he's a little bit fat if you ask me... lol
 
and prejudice? Very complex this thing called life, huh?
 
nice original post..something to think about..
 
yeah, I'm never wrong. don't even bother me. even if Hugh Jackman disagrees
 
It all just don't matter If anyone says anything to you, ignore them and move on easy as that, If they are serious, was that better.
 
He who believes his reason to be infallible is very near to error. Even those whose ideas are of the falsest profess to base them on reason; and it is in the name of reason that they reject whatever seems to them to be impossible. Allan Kardec
 
I agree. All input is potentially useful in one way or another. Curiosity, good manners, and a good sense of humor take me 'most everywhere I need/want to go.
 
"I am the wisest man alive, for I know one thing, and that is that I know nothing." -Socrates
 
i love ssssssoooooooooo much. sorry if this sounds weird but its true.
you r so talented. i loved the x men movies
 
I liked Real Steel, it was a good role. I can't tell that it's you in that photo.
 
To be great is to be misunderstood aswell keep up the good work atleast some actors have intelligence

philosophy meets science in that statement. to have theories and ideas proven wrong only leads to greater discoveries and truths
 
This is 2012 man who cares what Socrates says.
 
Hawaii GiftBasket, I could agree more, but how hasn't been discovered yet. :D
 
+Ryan Rodgers , “Employ your time in improving yourself by other men's writings so that you shall come easily by what others have labored hard for.” Socrates
 
Why do you have to accompany this post about philosophy with a picture of yourself? Maybe you should read about Narcissus. 
 
There are no remaining writings of Socrates. The only "quotes" we have of his come from Plato, and maybe a couple other sources.
 
Karen there will never be a true discovery to 'how' we can only accept 'is' and know that we know nothing
 
i think what Socrates is saying, is that it is better to think and be original than to just sit on the sidelines and judge other's originality. Being willing to listen to other people's opinion is also a good message, but I don't think that is what Socrates was talking about. For example, as an athletic equivalent, it is better to be the gymnast at the Olympics than the judge at the Olympics. Or in Hugh's case, it is better to be the actor in a movie rather than the movie critic. It is more valuable to try to come up with new ideas rather than shoot down the new ideas others come up with.
 
u know u do look a lot more like Logan in a colored pic
 
Hey, (Hugh), you're full of it. 
 
When i saw this photo i thought in John Marston #LOL
 
so if anyone out there is saying "..............."@ hugh jackme
 
I don't know what that's in reference to but I gotta question it, if being refuted you mean your errors are being pointed out and you can correct your mistakes than I can go along with that up to a point. There are people who want to convince you that you are wrong when your not so being "refuted" in that way isn't going to help.
 
There almost always is some truth, but how much value does it hold? Did you really post this Mr. Jackman?
 
+Winnie Hsu I asked that same question of one by the Dalai Llama, and I was told that it's an editor or something like that. Which makes sense. These posts only go as high as 500 comments. Hugh Jackman would spin the meter a few times backwards and make it smoke if it was really him. Only people like you and I don't know this giggle chuckle and lol! :-)
Meggs
 
Sia Fanta yes we can ok :-) 
Meggs
 
Fabian WHAT DO YOU MEAN :-) ? 
 
looking old mannnn.
 
Awesome!! My new band, Aspired Effluent, we're fulla it, whatever it happens to be? Comes from Expired Affluence? Meh, bad sound!!!
 
yeah that is true but never take to heart thou
 
yes he is but every time i look on Google he is always has a picture of himself and talking about himself. I want to know what else Hugh Jackman has to say and what other pictures he likes beside him self???
 
When you look that good, it is a sin, not to put a picture of yourself. Australians in general are good looking, but even among them, he is good looking. He was awesome in "Real Steel". Damn Hugh, Damn! Please keep blessing us with your knowledge and good looks.
 
Thank you +Zetta Miller for plussing this, I feel that I speak for everyone when I say this, I am the voice of what of what everyone is afraid to say. It is not my fault Hugh Jackman was put on God's green earth to raise the sexiness level. I only write on what I see.

Truth ends & begins with No. 1 you best policy is truth if u lie best u have the memory of an elephant :-) 
Meggs
 
So Sia Fanta are you there? 
Meggs
 
I believe in 1 thing honesty I all most lost that because of a misunderstood message I be never lie & I do have a good memory "when it comes to work but real people never no need to anyway so I'm blessed I never have to lie :-) oh I'm no saint k :- 
Meggs
 
Im not perfect show or tell me who is. I'll show you a liar I'm new to this Google. I have met great people hope ur 1 
 
No one ever truly sees themselves. I agree. If you can get past the pain of being criticized, there is usually a bit of truth there.
Meggs
 
So Miss Fanta r we friends? :-)
Meggs
 
Truth respect that's what normal people never forget friends :-)

Honessty wins yeh 
 
Well, I've been taught that it is always good to have a teachable spirit because we are always learning and there is always a better way to do things. Have a blessed weekend! Terry :-)
 
+Hugh Jackman , men, i dont know why they are going to make a reboot of #vanhellsing whitout you. but it will be a terrible mistake. you are the best!! the best van hellsing, the best wolverine. the best hacker! try to remember it to them later =D
 
wow dude you got someone checkin you out who calls himself dream warrior my name is Earl
 
Hey im your fan i meet you in auditorio in mexico ....your awsome
 
I always to think about in back of my mind as I watch people ,and go thought my day.
"It is of practical value to learn to like yourself. Since you must spend so much time with yourself you might as well get some satisfaction out of the relationship."
 
That's a good lesson in humility. Learn by your mistakes! Socrates had some great philosophical views. Thanks Hugh!
