      - George MacDonald

O ye gods! what thick encircling darkness blinds the minds of men!
      - Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)

Obtuseness is sometimes a virtue.
      - Antoine de Rivarol, Comte de Rivarol

You can reach stupidity only with a cannon ball.
      - Henry Wheeler Shaw (used pseudonyms Josh Billings and Uncle Esek)
