Collected Insults, Volume II

"I can't describe how stupid that man seems to me; unfairly enough, even what tiny truth there is in him seems backed by this immense capital-- these armies, this downright kingdom-- of stupidity, so that even when he says something intelligent it affects me like Gospel quoted in support of social injustice."
-- John Updike, Four Sides of One Story
