Saint-Exupéry is one of the most lapidary writers I’ve come across, particularly when commenting on vast human complexities such as love, peace, or war.   I liked this pithy and purposeful view of the validity and value of intelligence. 

Intelligence is valid only as it serves love. 

See an earlier post on intelligence.
