Previous Section   343. BEING VERY CLEVER   Next Section

Being very Clever.  Being very clever keeps men young, but they must put up with being considered, for that very reason, older than they are.  For men read the handwriting of the intellect as signs of experience — that is, of having lived much and evilly, of suffering, error, and repentance.  Hence, if we are very clever and show it, we appear to them older and wickeder than we are.
