Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former.
~ Albert Einstein
You wouldn’t believe how stupid the average person is. And worse than that, half the people are even stupider than THAT!
~ George Carlin
Yes, it’s been observed for centuries that it’s the truly stupid who are the most successful, live the longest, are the happiest, the wealthiest, the most desirable, and so on. Lets face it: It’s the stupid who have an inside track in this world.
~ Ann Coulter
People who are far from God think they are very near to him, when they begin to take a few steps to approach him. The most polite and most enlightened people have the same stupidity about this as a peasant who thinks he is really at court, because he has seen the king. We leave the horrible vices; we restrain ourselves in a weak, worldly and dissipated life. We judge it, not by the Gospel, which is the only rule, but by the comparison which we make between that life and the one which we led before, or which we see led by som many others. No more is needed to canonize ourselves, and to go sound asleep so far as everything goes which has to do with our salvation.”
~ Fenelon, in Christian Perfection
The earth is a great piece of stupidity.
~ Victor Hugo, in Les Misérables
