Everyone aspires to be intelligent. But, how is this accomplished?
Everyone wants to be treated with respect. Everyone wants to appear intelligent.
Everyone enjoys watching smart people and pretending to be smart themselves.
That's the start of the pathetic nonsense of pretending to live a l... ife.
Among hundreds of rules of stupidity, these are the first three:
The first rule of stupidity is to admit openly that you're stupid enough to learn life lessons.
Second rule of stupidity: Don't believe anyone who claims to be smart and wise. Simply try to be less stupid, step by step, over time.
Third rule of stupidity: Pretending to be smart will never teach you anything good or pure. Make a list of all your stupidity and ignorance, and use that as a starting point.
