Cleverness Quotations

Plato

A blunder at the right moment is better than cleverness at the wrong time.

Raymond Chandler

Clever people will recognize and tolerate nothing but cleverness.
Henri Frederic Amiel

Ignorance of all things is an evil neither terrible nor excessive, nor yet the greatest of all; but great cleverness and much learning, if they be accompanied by a bad training, are a much greater misfortune.
Plato
