"My mother said I must always be intolerant of ignorance but understanding of illiteracy. That some people, unable to go to school, were more educated and more intelligent than college professors."
Maya Angelou (via xxxi-i-mcmxcii)
ETERNALLY CO-SIGNED. I’ve known brilliant insightful people who never finished college, never finished high school, and even some that can’t read/write beyond signing their name. I’ve also known people with PhDs and ivy league degrees who are airheads that are really goddamn good at jumping through hoops.
“intolerant of ignorance but understanding of illiteracy” — YES what a great way to put it.
