From The Top Five Smartest People In The World That Have Ever Lived

1. William James Siddis (1898-1944) - "The art of being wise is the ability to know what should be ignored." 

James (as he is often known as) was so smart he scored a 300 on an IQ test, the highest ever. He went to Harvard at 11 years old, and knew 40 languages. He became a math professor at MIT, though as he grew up he got into trouble and took a huge dive, letting the world down on what smarts can do.
