When you say that “foolish words require deaf ears”, you mean that you should always take foolish comments with a pinch of salt and ignore them or give them no importance. Just like when you say that “foolish words don’t reach the Heaven” you also mean to say that foolish comments are not important (that’s why they won’t reach Heaven). This is basically a way of saying that we shouldn’t feed foolish or offensive comments to avoid conflicts and to avoid the person who says them to be seen as wise. At the same time, also is a sarcastic way of alerting us to be better people for others and for us too, because we all have flaws, so with this proverb we can make a parallel between the others and ourselves.
