My interpretation is: "Being a fool who loves is better than being a wise and skilful person with no love in your heart."
The wise and skilful one will do great harm to the world and live a miserable life himself when there is no love in his heart; on the other hand, an ignorant and bungling man who loves is basically harmless and he would live life happily. Of course, it is better to be wise, skilful and full of love.
