The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposing ideas in mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function. —F. Scott Fitzgerald
(Only two opposing ideas at a time? Huh. Obviously he wasn’t referring to multiples!)
If we had a keen vision of all ordinary human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow or the squirrel’s heartbeat, and we should die of the roar which lies on the other side of silence. As it is, the quickest of us walk about well-wadded with stupidity.
