Things to Think About: The Difference Between Smart, Average, and Stupid People

Things to Think About
By Pepper de Callier

The Difference Between Smart, Average, and Stupid People


I can’t help but ponder the difference between these three types of people, especially as we enter into such an important election cycle.  And, who better to turn to for guidance in clarifying this very important distinction than Socrates?

My hope it that this quote from Socrates will help you as you consider for whom to cast your ballot.  It’s also a wonderful guide in everyday life.  Here it is.

“Smart people learn from everything and everyone, 
Average people from their experiences,
Stupid people already have all the answers”.

So, please consider this column a public service message as you apply its wisdom to your evaluation of the candidates.

Till next time…
