Appearing to be Clever

I wrote in my personal journal this line the other day:
Success doesn't belong to the clever. It also belongs to those who appear to be clever. But if you don't think you're clever yet know that you have to appear to be clever to succeed, doesn't that make you clever?
Inspired by:

Epimenides the Cretan says, "All Cretans are liars". (The Epimenides Paradox)

Justice must not only be done, it must also appear to be done. - Lord Hewart C.J., R. v. Sussex Justices, Ex parte McCarthy
