Quote Of The Day

I truly hope all had a great weekend and are ready for the week ahead….so much stuff…so little time……

One of my favorite quotes is “Stupidity Is The Deliberate Cultivation Of Ignorance”…..not sure who is credited with it…but it is a very good quote.

MLK had one along the same lines……(see below)…..

 

AMEN!

There is too much of both these days….and Americans are embracing their ignorance and their stupidity as if it were a badge of honor.

So sad!

    1. I wish I could be optimistic….but after looking at the choices I am not convinced that we are capable of rational thought or logic decisions….sorry to be a bummer. chuq

  1. I think grandad had it closest of those quotes menitoned; MLK is also right, I think. But, to my mind, there is a distinction between the two, subtle but real. The truly stupid can’t necessarily help being that way, and are virtually always ignorant, if only because they can’t keep up. But, ignorance can be cured by learning, so, remaining ignorant, even if stupid, is, to me, the real flaw in the individual, for choosing to be so, simply because it is too hard to think, or, most likely, because they are too cowardly to face reality as it really is, preferring to allow others to think for them.

    So, I guess I’d say, stupid is often unavoidable, but, if earnest in nature, has a certain charm, while ignorance is a choice. Deliberate ignorance is more than just stupid and small; it is cowardly, and often leads to an ugliness of spirit, venal and base. Not to mention fear, and a violence of nature, proven over and over throughout history.

    1. I agree and that is why I like the quote so much….”Stupidity Is The Deliberate Cultivation Of Ignorance”. chuq

  2. Can’t read the Martin Luther King quote (probably due to one of my many blocking programs) but I think we need to take a more Malcolm X approach. We need to eliminate stupidity “by all means necessary”.
