Anne said to me, 'You're foolish.'
Anne said to me, 'You're a foolish.'

Fool is a noun, and requires the article when we use it with the verb to be. Foolish is an adjective, and can't be used with the article after the verb to be.

A fool or a foolish person doesn't mean an insane person, but one who acts thoughtlessly. We tend to use silly or stupid instead of foolish in modern usage.

Truth isn't an adjective but a noun. The adjective is true, and we use it with no article between it and the verb to be.

I've seen and the two of them.
