Look around and you will find,
highly intelligent people who are living like
and not pros,
they have long exchanged their intelligence for a life without ambition
and for a life of feeding off the communal maintenance ration,
they know they can own and be the source
but they won’t go through the trouble,
they are afraid, too afraid to take risks, so they conclude that it’s more honorable
to feed on the ground, side-by-side with the chicks,
than be the eagles they are and make use of their wings.
Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings- Salvador Dali.
