“Common sense is the knack of seeing things as they are, and doing things as they ought to be done.”      

–Josh Billings (a.k.a. Henry Wheeler Shaw, American Humorist, Essayist and Lecturer, 1818-1885)

Commonsense Ain’t So Common!

Jean de la Bruyère.jpg

“A man may have intelligence enough to excel in a particular thing and lecture on it, and yet not have sense enough to know he ought to be silent on some other subject of which he has but a slight knowledge; if such an illustrious man ventures beyond the bounds of his capacity, he loses his way and talks like a fool.”           

–Jean de la Bruyère (French Essayist and Moralist, 1645-1696)
