From “The Curse” by Dame Wilburn

“I don’t think that smart people are smarter than me; I think they’ve read a book I didn’t read.”

This is from the radio show The Moth: True Stories Told Live. I caught bits and pieces while driving out to the middle school to pick up the girls after a student council workshop yesterday. The above quote does a much better job summarizing my philosophy about intelligence than anything I’ve come up with. My closest equivalent is: “I’m not smart; I just like smart things.”
