    I disagree. I know a lot of people that I would consider "smart" but not "educated"

    So does the Oxford dictionary, which considers smart a synonym for intelligence:

    smart


    adjective 1 clean, tidy, and stylish. 2 bright and fresh in appearance. 3 (of a place) fashionable and upmarket. 4 informal- having a quick intelligence. 5 chiefly N. Amer. impertinently clever or sarcastic. 6 quick; brisk

    education


    noun 1 the process of educating or being educated. 2 the theory and practice of teaching. 3 information about or training in a particular subject. 4 (an education) informal an enlightening experience

    All of God's children are not beautiful. Most of God's children are, in fact, barely presentable.

    A truly smart person is someone who knows how to put the seat down.

    All the book learning in the world doesn't mean crap without common sense.

    I know countless people who have x many masters degrees, etc. and don't have a lick of practical common sense. Why? Because they've had their nose in a book for too long!

    IMHO, the best education you can get is free. Its called life. And you never stop learning.

    Education is what you learn.
    Intelligence is how you apply what you've learned.
    And wisdom is knowing when you're right, and when you're full of shit.
