My dear,

An intellectual is a person who loves words just because, not because they want to use them elegantly to get something (they can though). An intellectual is a person that reads a book to read a book, not to portray that they’re intelligent.

An intellectual is a person who has discovered something more interesting than sex.

… An intellectual is a weird sort of person; their vices include reading, learning, thinking, and day-dreaming. Natural selection has of course limited the number of intellectuals. Can’t have people not having sex now can it? We wouldn’t last long.

Falsely yours,
