head hat rack

GW was always telling Doc (when Doc was a dumb kid): “Use your head for something besides a hat rack.”

Obviously, the person was being dumb and GW was reminding the person (often Doc) to use his brain. But he meant more than that.

Intelligence and brain power are gifts to be used. Do not act like you were home sleeping when brains were being passed out.
