Favorite Quotes: The Ability To Speak Does Not Make You Intelligent

"The ability to speak does not make you intelligent."

-Qui-Gon Jinn

Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace didn't have a lot of good, but Liam Neeson's character Qui-Gon Jinn was one of the better parts of the movie. He says this to Jar Jar Binks as a very zen-sounding insult. While "intelligent life" in terms of possible aliens is a meaningful term, to humans it's not.
