Intelligence is not the same as knowledge.
It’s actually how well you use knowledge that determines your intelligence.
Intelligence is not the same as education.
There are incredibly intelligent people who never benefited from a proper education, and there some terrifically moronic dunces who have acquired all the formal education that money can buy.
It seems that you can’t buy your way out of stupid.
You also can’t impoverish a person enough to diminish their intelligence.
It comes from within. Given by something far more powerful than money and status.
It’s a blessing that should be respected and shared.
