The person who says he knows what he thinks but cannot express it usually does not know what he thinks.
   —    Mortimer Adler
I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I’m not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

[I have frequently heard people asking why President Trump can’t form words into intelligible sentences and (loosely defined) sentences into a coherent paragraph.
My (opinion) response is:  I + I + I + U = BS.
Start with Ignorance (doesn’t know what he needs to know), add Indifference (doesn’t care about what he needs to know), low Intelligence and an Unwillingness to read / listen / learn == spew a typical #DonTheCon string of words (non-sense / garbage) aka:  Bull Sh*t and lies.
And that’s why I’m looking forward to 20 January 2021.   —    KMAB]

Imagination is more important than knowledge.  For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.
