Those of you who think you know everything are particularly annoying to those of us who do.

Well I'll be darned. Here I thought this was going to be a "bumper sticker" type quote, but it is widely attributed thusly....

Those people who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.

Hmm, I still have my doubts but Asimov *could* have said it...

I should have "opined" on this one.
That is why I was careful to say it is "widely attributed."
I could never pick a "favorite" author. But, when it comes to the "most brilliant" authors, Asimov is always at the top of my list.
I find it very difficult to believe that Asimov ever said this. Or, if he did, he was kidding around, and it would most likely have been taken out of context.
