“The problem of the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubts, while the stupid ones are full of confidence.” – Charles Bukowski
A quote I’ve read twice this week. Almost agreed with it until this brilliant brain brain of mine popped a question……”Who decide who is intelligent and who is stupid?”
Even if we have an intelligent person in front of us full of confidence telling us something from what we believed in, basing it from the quote, he or she can be deemed stupid by society. A person full of doubts on a particular solution to a problem should never be deemed as intelligent without offering an alternative solution.
If only we can realize that we don’t know what is right or what is true. We can enumarate what is wrong and think of the rest as being right or the other way around. But in the end we all of those were based on the preferences of the majority but that doesn’t mean it’s universally right.
I really admire people in history who have proven everyone wrong.
Because they know they can be right or wrong.
They can be stupid or intelligent.
Or they can be both.
