Meaning and analysis

Kwize Master During a discussion with the dragonfly, the very arrogant and pretentious rocket says that even if no one listens and pays attention to him, he continues to talk and is so intelligent that sometimes he doesn't understand anything he says. Obviously, this sentence should be understood as a very sarcastic description that Oscar Wilde makes of people who are full of themselves.
