Gurdjieff versus Ouspensky

After reading several books of Gurdjieff and just one book of Ouspensky, I suddenly had this, not so flattering, thought:

Gurdjieff is to Ouspensky what Papa Smurf is to Brainy Smurf.

I feel some intuitive understanding of and connection to Gurdjieff. His books contain a lot of humour and should be read with the mental context of the situation and struggle he was in. Having read only one book of Ouspensky, I feel he tried too hard to decipher the teachings of Gurdjieff and at times, completely missed the point… or missed that there was not even a point.
