An afterthought from a book I randomly picked up in a bookstore one odd day a couple of years ago:
“I don’t know much about being smart or intelligent, but I have been told that the guy who thinks he knows it all ends up looking stupid while the one who knows too much ends up dead. I guess that means that if you don’t look stupid or are not dead, you must be really smart.”
—From the book Girl Trouble by Alan Navarra
Admit it, it does make sense. Somehow.
