Something smart people need to realize

I recently read a column by Emmet Tyrell in which he says of George Washington: “He was courageous, occasionally brilliant, and endured setbacks and despair.”

It reminded me of something I realized a long time ago – it’s not enough to simply be intelligent.  If you do stupid things, then your intelligence is wasted.  And everyone thinks you're stupid anyway.
