We Are Not Clever

But Charley doesn’t have our problems. He doesn’t belong to a species clever enough to split the atom but not clever enough to live in peace with itself. He doesn’t even know about race…”

“…I am convinced that basically dogs think humans are nuts.”

From Travels With Charley by John Steinbeck

On the surface this is humorous but within it is full of truth. We are surely not clever enough to live in peace with ourselves.

We forget  Psalm 34:14: Depart from evil and do good; Seek peace and pursue it.
