So you think you are smart?  Maybe even super-smart?  Heh.  Here are two quotes to settle you down a bit.


Worship your intellect, being seen as smart – you will end up feeling stupid, a fraud, always on the verge of being found out. ~ David Foster Wallace

The intelligent man who is proud of his intelligence is like the condemned man who is proud of his large cell. ~ Simone Weil
