Thursday’s Thoughts #12: That’s so ‘passé’

Mesmer, or some other freak who turned me into a chicken in Las Vegas

“Never forget that intelligence rules the world and ignorance carries the burden. Therefore, remove yourself as far as possible from ignorance and seek as far as possible to be intelligent.”  By Marcus Garvey I’m a little conflicted about this one, and it has to do with my sometimes unrealistic definition of being intelligent.
