Words for Wednesday - On Ideas and Intelligence


A man is not necessarily intelligent because he has plenty of ideas, any more than he is a good general because he has plenty of soldiers. - Nicolas Chamfort

And it is probably not coincidence that, on the same page of my commonplace book, I also wrote down this quotation:

There is nothing more frightful than ignorance in action. - Goethe
