Thoughtful Bertrand Russell quote

Friend of mine shared this quote with me, and it made me smile...

"So far as I can remember, there is not one word in the Gospels in praise of intelligence."

- Bertrand Russell
British author, mathematician, & philosopher (1872 - 1970)

In reflecting on it a bit, I think that perhaps he should have said something besides intelligence -- perhaps: education, questioning, learning about the world, critical thinking, logic...

What do you think?
