If All GOOD People Were Clever

0 Comment

If all good people were clever,
And all clever people were good,
The world would be nicer than ever.
We thought that it possibly could.
But somehow, ’tis seldom or never
That the two hit off as they should;
For the good are so harsh to the clever,
The clever so rude to the good.
Elizabeth Wordsworth
