Jack: I am sick to death of cleverness. Everybody is clever nowadays. You can’t go anywhere without meeting clever people. The thing has become an absolute public nuisance. I wish to goodness we had a few fools left.

Algernon. The fools? Oh! about the clever people, of course.
Jack. What fools!
-The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde.
