“The sign of intelligent people is their ability to control emotions by the application of reason.”
~ Marya Mannes (1904-1990) American Journalist
For me, being intelligent isn’t just a matter of knowing many things about a particular subject but just as importantly, it’s a matter of controlling my emotions. A truly smart person is someone who knows a lot and has an even-temper when dealing with people under pressure. This is what I continually work on improving as I grow smarter.
