Interesting quote

This I have found on

for those who love philosophy, including those who are interested in postmodernism, or  claim themselves postmodernists… or who, basically, complicate their own lives and the lives of the others by elitist unintelligible language 😛

EDWARDS: “You are a philosopher, Dr. Johnson. I have tried too in my time to be a philosopher; but, I don’t know how, cheerfulness was always breaking in.”

On Intelligence

Ko có việc gì (thực ra đang viết proposal, ức chế quá, vào mạng surf linh tinh 1 hồi :() => ngồi đọc quotes – “ranh ngôn”, nhiều câu hay ho phết a!

In general, the greater the understanding, the greater the delusion; the more intelligent, the less sane.
—George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949)
=> Favorite author nên thường nói j mềnh cũng thấy like, hihi 😛

Human intelligence was more trouble than it was worth. It was more destructive than creative, more confusing than revealing, more discouraging than satisfying, more spiteful than charitable.
—Michael Crichton, The Andromeda Strain (1969)
=> Phản Khai sáng (Anti-Enlightenment) đây mà, chắc nx kẻ po-mo thích 🙂 — mình vẫn còn 1 ít máu bơm từ Enlightenment nên tuy là thưởng thức cái ý hay nhưng mà ko hoàn toàn agree.

That’s how people with brains operate: they don’t believe a damn thing or feel sorry for anyone.
—Arkady Strugatsky and Boris Strugatsky, Prisoners of Power (1969),
translated by Helen Saltz Jacobson (1977)
=> if it is this way, there will be no person with brain – that’s it! Btw, I don’t believe this sentence => I have brain :))

Intellectualism tends to foster negative thinking and may lead to psychosis, and those suffering from it should ideally be treated, as Professor Arca was treated, and released if still competent.
—Ursula K. Le Guin, ‘‘The Diary of the Rose’’ (1976)
=> gần đây vừa đọc nhờ dc 1 bài trên FB về hiện tượng “Bệnh tâm thần đe dọa giới trí thức” => categorised as IPC lah (issue of particular concern)

Intelligence does enable you to deny facts you dislike.
—Octavia E. Butler, Dawn (1987)
=> Agree 99%

‘‘‘D’you mean clever or intelligent?’’
‘‘Aren’t they the same?’’
‘‘No. Cleverness requires humor. Intelligence does not.’’
—Alfred Bester, ‘‘Galatea Galante’’ (1979)
=> A bit nonsense (50-50)

Anh Ca – người mà đang bận ngập đầu 😦
