Today's Quote:

Is open to interpretation --

One man that has a mind and knows it can always beat ten men who haven't and don't.

George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950), "The Apple Cart" (1930), act I

If silly old Fabian Shaw thinks one smart guy beats ten dumb ones, well it depends. If they're playing chess, then sure. If they're playing life, the smart guy loses unless he's a hustler out for a buck. If he's a hustler, then he can't have all that much of a mind. Hustling is about energy and indefatigability, not intelligence per se.
