"when I look back on all the crap I learned in high school, it's a wonder I can think at all...
but my lack of education hasn't hurt me none, I can read the writing on the wall." Paul Simon (Kodachrome)
Some times we equate intelligence with wisdom. I can tell you from my own experience that is a big mistake. In fact I have found that being way smart can be detrimental to one's wisdom. It is all to easy to think up rational reasons to support unwise choices. Wisdom does not come in degrees, a thought or action is either wise or it is not. We must use our intelligence to figure, we use wisdom to know. Since I am guilty of many unwise choices, I'll take wisdom over smarts any day.
