Emmanuel Aghado Quotes: Sometimes one needs to use cleverness
Sometimes one 'needs' to use cleverness and kick wisdom aside.It's not everything that needs the application of wisdom, cleverness has a role to play. Andby the fact that one knows when to use cleverness and kick wisdomaside, is another wisdom of its own.

— Emmanuel Aghado

This is where we are at right now, as a whole. No one is left out of the loop. We are experiencing a reality based on a thin veneer of lies and illusions. A world where greed is our God and wisdom is sin, where division is key and unity is fantasy, where the ego-driven cleverness of the mind is praised, rather than the intelligence of the heart.

— Bill Hicks

Cleverness is not wisdom.

— Euripides

Aleister Crowley Quotes: Science is always discovering odd scraps
Science is always discovering odd scraps of magical wisdom and making a tremendous fuss about its cleverness.

— Aleister Crowley

Cleverness as opposed to wisdom. Wanting and having instead of thinking and making.

— David Foster Wallace

David Foster Wallace Quotes: Corporations are getting better and
Corporations are getting better and better at seducing us into thinking the way they think-of profits as the telos and responsibility as something to be enshrined in symbol and evaded in reality. Cleverness as opposed to wisdom. Wanting and having instead of thinking and making. We cannot stop it. I suspect what'll happen is that there will be some sort of disaster-depression, hyperinflation-and then it'll be showtime: We'll either wake up and retake our freedom or we'll fall apart utterly. Like Rome-conqueror of its own people.

— David Foster Wallace

That's not wise, Lin. I think wisdom is very over-rated. Wisdom is just cleverness, with all the guts kicked out of it. I'd rather be clever than wise, any day. Most of the wise people I know give me a headache, but I never met a clever man or woman I didn't like. If I was giving wise advice-which I'm not-I'd say don't get drunk, don't spend all your money, and don't fall in love with a pretty village girl. That would be wise. That's the difference between clever and wise. I prefer to be clever, and that's why I told you to surrender, when you get to the village, no matter what you find when you get there. Okay. I'm going. Come and see me when you get back. I look forward to it. I really do.

— Gregory David Roberts

What a curious picture it is to find man, homo sapiens, of divine origin, we are told, seriously considering going underground to escape the consequences of his own folly. With a little wisdom and foresight, surely it is not yet necessary to forsake life in the fresh air and in the warmth of sunlight. What a paradox if our own cleverness in science should force us to live underground with the moles.

— J. William Fulbright

Ellis Peters Quotes: Cleverness and wisdom are not inevitable
Cleverness and wisdom are not inevitable yoke-fellows.

— Ellis Peters

Comforting Wealth comes by good work, by wisdom it increases, cleverness stabilizes it and by patience it is preserved.

— Mahesh Babu

The benefits of medical research are real - but so are the potential horrors of genetic engineering and embryo manipulation. We devise heart transplants, but do little for the 15 million who die annually of malnutrition and related diseases. Our cleverness has grown prodigiously - but not our wisdom.

— Martin Ryle

The disease having been caused by allowing cleverness to displace wisdom, no amount of clever research is likely to produce a cure.

— E. F. Schumacher

Euripides Quotes: Knowledge is not wisdom cleverness is
Knowledge is not wisdom: cleverness is not, not without awareness of our death, not without recalling just how brief our flare is. He who overreaches will, in his overreaching, lose what he possesses, betray what he has now. That which is beyond us, which is greater than the human, the unattainably great, is for the mad, or for those who listen to the mad, and then believe them.

— Euripides

The art of investment has one characteristic that is not generally appreciated. A creditable, if unspectacular, result can be achieved by the lay investor with a minimum of effort and capability; but to improve this easily attainable standard requires much application and more than a trace of wisdom. If you merely try to bring just a little extra knowledge and cleverness to bear upon your investment program, instead of realizing a little better than normal results, you may well find that you have done worse.

— Benjamin Graham

I'd rather rely on mother nature's wisdom than man's cleverness

— Wendell Berry

There is no sphere of human thought in which it is easier to show superficial cleverness and the appearance of superior wisdom than in discussing questions of currency and exchange

— Winston Churchill
