Cleverness And Wisdom Quotes

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

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

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

— David Foster Wallace

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

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

— Wendell Berry
