Help me either fake or find a quote. It is pseudo-profound!

I can't remember who said it, or when they said it, or even the exact wording. It was someone important and/or smart. Probably will never find out who it was.

The gist of it was "There is a breed of men who we must hope find fulfillment in the sciences and difficult studies, for if they walk other paths and find their backs against the wall with grievances to settle, the result will be extraordinarily well planned violence." Maybe that will even do, but preferably I would like the real quote, or a wording that really works.

The central point of the quote is also true, is it not?

    So, the paraphrase is that we hope bright, competent people don't become bright, competent criminals?

    Unless I find a decent job soon, I'll be putting this theory to the test. I reckon I can outdo the local dealers just by turning up on time.

    I know that I spend my nights worrying that Jared from science class might one day turn to organized violence.

    You could just watch the local street corners for a week and then rob the dealers.

    It's like taking candy from a heavily armed and paranoid baby.
