The world's great men have not commonly been great scholars, nor its great scholars great men.

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., 1809–1894
American physician, poet, professor, lecturer, and author.


But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence. 

1 Corinthians 1:27-29
