Stupidity is a talent for misconception.
If the advice of a fool for once happens to be good, it requires a wise man to carry it out
We have no words for speaking of wisdom to the stupid. He who understands the wise is wise already
Stupidity is an elemental force for which no earthquake is a match
The greatest fool is he who thinks he is not one and all others are
If fifty million people say a foolish thing, it is still a foolish thing
Earth has its boundaries, but human stupidity is limitless
A learned fool is more foolish than an ignorant fool
Stupidity has a knack of getting its way
He was born stupid, and greatly increased his birthright

On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
