A Word of Wisdom From Maya Angelou

“[My mother] said that I must always be intolerant of ignorance but understanding of illiteracy. That some people, unable to go to school, were more educated and even more intelligent than college professors. She encouraged me to listen carefully to what country people called mother wit. That in those homely sayings was couched the collective wisdom of generations.” Maya Angelou, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

    1. Yes, they do. I have a very good friend who doesn’t have a high school education but educated himself through reading good books. He’s an avid reader, and he and his wife have traveled to numerous countries sharing the gospel. He knows way more than many extremely educated people.
