“I am sick to death of cleverness. Everybody is clever now-a-days. You can’t go anywhere without meeting clever people. The thing has become an absolute public nuisance. I wish to goodness we had a few fools left.”
True that, Oscar Wilde. Sometimes I find cleverness in other people really exhausting and hard to keep up with. I prefer my companions to have a delicate mixture of cleverness and simplicity: or, the ability to talk about sandwiches / what either of us are wearing / the weather / Teen Mom.
