“Memories of emotional events are stamped on running water.” ― Aristotle
If being smart is knowing the truth, then being stupid means believing what you think regardless of its truth. That could mean you believe what’s false, or that you don’t consider truth at all. It should be recognized that we never know the truth, and this is where being smart natters, because the smarter you are, the closer you can come to holding widely different versions of the truth in mind at the same time.
