How to use blockhead in a sentence?

  1. Sir George Savile:

    The vanity of teaching doth oft tempt a man to forget that he is a blockhead.

  2. Hazlitt:

    A lively blockhead in company is a public benefit. Silence or dulness by the side of folly looks like wisdom.

  3. The Hitopadesa:

    Even a blockhead may respect inspire, So long as he is suitably attired; A fool may gain esteem among the wise, So long as he has sense to hold his tongue.

  4. The Talmud:

    Seven things characterise the wise man, and seven the blockhead. The wise man speaks not before those who are his superiors, either in age or wisdom. He interrupts not others in the midst of their discourse. He replies not hastily. His questions are relevant to the subject, his answers, to the purpose. In delivering his sentiments he taketh the first in order first, the last, last. What he understands not he says, ?I understand not.? He acknowledges his error, and is open to conviction. The reverse of all this characterises the blockhead.

  5. William Blake:

    He's a Blockhead who wants a proof of what he Can't Percieve And he's a Fool who tries to make such a Blockhead believe.
