It is commonly a dangerous thing for a man to have more sense than his neighbors. Socrates paid for his superiority with his life; and if Aristotle saved his skin, it was by taking to his heels in time.
      - Christoph Martin Wieland

Of plain sound sense life's current coin is made;
  With that we drive the most substantial trade.
      - Edward Young

Sense is our helmet, wit is but the plume;
  The plume exposes, 'tis our helmet saves.
    Sense is the diamond, weighty, solid, sound;
      When cut by wit, it casts a brighter beam;
        Yet, wit apart, it is a diamond still.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night VIII, l. 1,254)
