Ignorance addendum

The gods value morals alone; they have paid no compliments to intellect, nor offered it a single reward. If intellect is welcome anywhere in the other world, it is in hell, not heaven.

\~ Mark Twain, quoted in Harper's Magazine, April 2011, p. 36.

Though I suppose I need to be careful not to conflate intelligence with knowledge.
