    I wish that's why I was miserable. Unfortunately I'm also as dumb as a post.

    Happiness and Intelligence doesn't even correlate at all. This is just an edgy quote for people who think themselves as "intelligent", while the reality is that they are probably lonely (and therefore depressed) so they justify it by saying people around them are dumb (thus why they're lonely, "it isn't their fault it's the people around them") and they use that excuse to distance themselves even more and shift blame away from themselves Furthermore, "intelligence" isn't quantifiable. You can be pretty smart on some things but not so much for other things.

    Unhappy people escape their meaningless life by creating a facade of ”intelligence”. Intelligent people make their life fulfilling and meaningful, and don’t succumb to these sort of excuses.

    Then again, happiness is not necessarily the same as satisfaction, nor serenity, nor peace. ... and not everyone defines "happiness" the same. ... silly lyrics in a silly old song suggest " ... *different things to different people* ... ". Even if you're not that intelligent, you should be allowed your own objectives and your own idea of "happiness".

    Ignorance is bliss.

    I whole heartily agree with him. I see intelligence as knowledge and its increased with a bearing on the soul. I do not considered myself as intelligent, but I do knows some stuff. The reason why happiness is difficult to find in an intellectual is that they knows and understands other people. I don't know how to put in it words just yet, but this quote goes well with the good ol saying: Ignorance is a bliss.

    You’re not so smart if you can’t figure out how to let things go and exist in the moment, where happiness exists. This line is a cop out for intellectually lazy people who don’t want to put in the effort to work on themselves but want an ego boost anyway. Fuck this quote.

    It’s rare because their brain is constantly evolving at a faster rate, (so it seems) and with that comes the brain creating more and more “problems” for the person

    Pretty much. Happiness and intelligence don't get along well

    Although I'm tempted to like this quote, research doesn't show this to be true. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/22998852/

    Sounds like a pretty self-serving idea. “I’m happy. It must be because I’m so smart!”

    If you're that intelligent, shouldn't you be able to figure out a way to be happy?

    Eh. It's up to you whether to be optimistic and explore opportunities which can easily lead to happiness. Some of the most mentally healthy people I know are infinitely optimistic, even while stressed or life had gotten them down.

    I just really enjoy Hemingway, whether he said that or not. Crisp.

    In other words, the more you know, the more worries you have. Intelligent people tend to over think things and ruin it for themselves. They cant just enjoy things for what it is. They will fear it, doubt it, second guess it and often miss the point of just letting go.

    Absolutely not. True intelligence is the ability to figure solutions to problems. If someone cannot figure solutions, how intelligent are they really? This quote is de facto self-contradictory.
