I.Q. November 06 2014

I read something that really hit home in a novel this week.  A gentleman was talking about a lady he met and found to have the most uncommon good sense.  He says "This is to say that she agreed with most of my opinions.  Have you ever noticed that?  We base our assessment of the intelligence of others entirely on how closely their thinking matches our own.  I'm sure that there are people out there who violently disagree with me on most things, and I'm broad-minded enough to concede that they might possibly not be complete idiots, but I much prefer the company of people who agree with me.  You might want to think about that."

Believe me, I've been thinking about it every since!
