  • Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense. Gertrude Stein
  • Common sense is genius dressed in working clothes. Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • To that small part of ignorance that we arrange and classify we give the name knowledge. Bierce, Ambrose Ambrose Bierce (Satirist)
  • In an age which is sometimes ironically called "remarkable" for its commercialism, nothing has been more truly remarkable than the advancement in learning as well as in material progress; and of all the instruments that have contributed to this end, none has been more effective, perhaps, than the practical popularisation of literature. - The World's Greatest Books - Volume 01 - Fiction
