There is a line I love from the Academy award-winning movie Good Will Hunting, where Robin Williams falls out with Matt Damon because Matt Damon is being a smart arse. Damon has read every book there is on the planet and he insults Robin William’s wife. Williams grabs him and pins him against the wall and says: “Listen to me you little s**t, you can read every book in the world but you can’t tell me what it smells like in the Sistine Chapel”.
