"The difference between stupid and intelligent people – and this is true whether or not they are well-educated – is that intelligent people can handle subtlety."
― Neal Stephenson
"Man has a single basic choice: to think or not, and that is the gauge of his virtue. Moral perfection is an unbreached rationality-not the degree of your intelligence, but the full and relentless use of your mind, not the extent of your knowledge, but the acceptance of reason as an absolute."
-Ayn Rand Atlas Shrugged
