People are generally called intelligent through a wrong use of this word. The intelligent are not those who have studied..., but those whose soul is intelligent, who can judge what is good and what evil; they avoid what is evil and harms the soul and intelligently care for and practice what is good and profits the soul, greatly thanking God. It is these alone who should properly be called intelligent. St. Antony the Great(170 Texts on Saintly Life no. 1)
