Irony or paradox?

Snake-charmer

“Snake’s poison is life to the snake. It is in relation to the man that it means death”

Rumi

I get confused all the time between Irony & Paradox, Not sure when to use it, English pundits can help me.

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

  1. I love the photo, and love Rumi’s wisdom, as always.
    Paradox is a statement which is both true and false at the same time. The famous Aristotle’s paradox: “Everything inside this circle is a lie.”
    Irony is saying the opposite of what you mean, with full understanding that your audience will get your true meaning: “This bed is as soft, as concrete.”
