Oh! I wondered why all higher education professors were such liberals- for self control. Now I get it.

Ahhh, but being an educator and being educated are not necessarily the same thing.

I would have to disagree. I think it should read: "You are WISE when you have the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or self-confidence." Definitely not the same thing. I've known a lot of highly-educated hot heads....Robert Frost - who does he think he is anyway? :}
