Genius quotes by Louisa May Alcott

Genius quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer

Genius quotes by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
#10. It has been observed before that images, however beautiful, though faithfully copied from nature, and as accurately represented in words, do not of themselves characterize the poet. They become proofs of original genius only as far as they are modified by a predominant passion; or by associated thoughts or images awakened by that passion; or when they have the effect of reducing multitude to unity, or succession to an instant; or lastly, when a human and intellectual life is transferred to them from the poet's spirit. #Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Genius quotes by Joe Theismann

#14. Who are we, and how do we relate this idea in a way that's meaningful to our customers and the values they hold dear?

In other words, one must define something meaningful. To do that, one must identify to whom this must be meaningful. #Quote by David Brier
Genius quotes by Joe Meno
#15. I don't like the fact that no one has any imagination anymore. It doesn't pay to be a dreamer because all they really want you to do is answer the phone. Nobody wants you to think about anything new or use your brain or make anything interesting because everything important has already been made. America is over; it's done being brilliant.Everything genius has already been built, like all the great works of art have already been produced. #Quote by Joe Meno

by happy accident at any stage of rising manhood,

Genius quotes by Rob Hopkins
#18. Transition Initiatives are based on four key assumptions:
1. That life with dramatically lower energy consumption is inevitable, and that it's better to plan for it than to be taken by surprise.
2. That our settlements and communities presently lack the resilience to enable them to weather the severe energy shocks that will accompany peak oil.
3. That we have to act collectively, and we have to act now.
4. That by unleashing the collective genius of those around us to creatively and proactively design our energy descent, we can build ways of living that are more connected, more enriching and that recognize the biological limits of our planet. #Quote by Rob Hopkins
Genius quotes by Eddie Griffin
#19. I believe God wrote the Word in your essence. That's the genius of my Father. You are born knowing right from wrong. You don't need a book to tell you that! #Quote by Eddie Griffin

Genius quotes by Samuel Goldwyn
#24. The independents who were our fiercest competitors all succumbed to the one-hit-makes-you-a-genius philosophy. It is a mistake to think you have the magic touch. Show business is roulette. If you start to play for stakes you can't afford, there's no way you can survive. #Quote by Samuel Goldwyn

Genius quotes by Martin Sheen
#31. Jim Dean and Elvis were the spokesmen for an entire generation. When I was in acting school in New York, years ago, there was a saying that if Marlon Brando changed the way people acted, then James Dean changed the way people lived. He was the greatest actor who ever lived. He was simply a genius. #Quote by Martin Sheen
Genius quotes by Comte De Lautreamont

Genius quotes by David Sedaris
#33. Still, there were moments when, against all reason, I thought I might be a genius. These moments were provoked not by any particular accomplishment but by cocaine and crystal methamphetamine - drugs that allow you to lean over a mirror with a straw up your nose, suck up an entire week's paycheck, and think, God, I'm smart. #Quote by David Sedaris
Genius quotes by Francine Prose
#34. decision. I was tired of his jealousy, sick of his belief that the only permissible topic of conversation was his unrecognized genius. #Quote by Francine Prose
Genius quotes by Robert Nozick
#35. Given the complexity of interpersonal relationships and institutions and the complexity of co-ordination of the actions of many people, it is enormously unlikely that, even if there were one ideal pattern for society, it could be arrived at in an a priori fashion. And even supposing that some great genius did come along with a blueprint, who could have the confidence that it could work #Quote by Robert Nozick
Genius quotes by Francois-Henri Pinault
#36. Alexander McQueen was one of the greatest fashion designers of his generation. His genius, sometimes provocative, admired and saluted by all, constantly opened new perspectives. Visionary and avant-garde, his creations took their inspiration from both tradition and timeless hyper-modernity. #Quote by Francois-Henri Pinault
Genius quotes by Michael J. Sullivan
#37. You think you're a very clever fellow, don't you?" Saldur challenged.
"No, Your Grace," Merrick replied. "Clever is the man who makes a fortune selling dried-up cows, explaining how it saves the farmers the trouble of getting up every morning to milk them. I'm not clever - I'm a genius. #Quote by Michael J. Sullivan
Genius quotes by Steven Pressfield
#38. Why does Zeus send prodigies to earth? For the same reason he makes a comet streak across the sky. To show not what has been done, but what can be. #Quote by Steven Pressfield
Genius quotes by Johann Kaspar Lavater
#39. The discovery of truth, by slow progressive meditation, is wisdom.
Intuition of truth, not preceded by perceptible meditation, is genius. #Quote by Johann Kaspar Lavater
Genius quotes by Erwin Chargaff
#40. There are no such men today. We have created a mechanism that makes it practically impossible for a real genius to appear. In my own field the biochemist Fritz Lipmann or the much maligned Linus Pauling were very talented people. But generally, geniuses everywhere seem to have died out by 1914. Today, most are mediocrities blown up by the winds of the time. #Quote by Erwin Chargaff
Genius quotes by Orison Swett Marden
#41. Should you be so unfortunate as to suppose you are a genius, and that 'things will come to you,' it would be well to undeceive yourself as soon as possible. Make up your mind that industry must be the price of all you obtain, and at once begin to pay down. #Quote by Orison Swett Marden
Genius quotes by Richelle Mead
#42. Because there is no greater evil than ignorance and the destruction of genius. Ignorance has been responsible for more death, more bigotry, and more sin than any other force. It is the destroyer of mankind. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Genius quotes by David R. Hawkins
#43. Until one acknowledges the genius within oneself, one will have great difficulty recognizing it in others. #Quote by David R. Hawkins
Genius quotes by Deyth Banger
#44. How do you know about the world is real?...
How?...
How you don't think that you are locked in matrix... which is programmed by a genius or something more further... which we don't believe it goes like fatasy and science fiction which is ...we are cursed by a witch and we stay in a box... full of illusions. #Quote by Deyth Banger
Genius quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#45. It is not every man who can be a Christian, even in a very moderate sense, whatever education you give him. It is a matter of constitution and temperament, after all. He may have to be born again many times. I have known many a man who pretended to be a Christian, in whom it was ridiculous, for he had no genius for it. It is not every man who can be a free man, even. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Genius quotes by Seneca The Younger
#46. Genius has never been accepted without a measure of condonement. #Quote by Seneca The Younger
Genius quotes by Sheila Heti
#47. Aside from blow jobs, though, I'm through with being the perfect girlfriend, just through with it. Then if he's sore with me, let him dump my ass. That will just give me more time to be a genius. #Quote by Sheila Heti
Genius quotes by Myra McEntire
#48. Funny, gorgeous, and a genius. What a package. He backed out of the parking space, smiling as he drove away.
I loved that he left crazy off the list.
I loved it even more that he would never think to add it. #Quote by Myra McEntire
Genius quotes by Michael Meade
#49. When a person becomes aware of their genius and they live it and they give generously from it, they change the world, they affect the world. And when they depart everyone knows something is missing. #Quote by Michael Meade
Genius quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#50. Sometimes geniuses create nothing new, they organize already existing material into something completely useful in other ways #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
Genius quotes by Jan Morris
#51. Sigmund Freud was also frustrated here. In a city that later embraced his ideas with particular zeal, being organically inclined towards neurosis, he himself found only failure. He came to Trieste on the train from Vienna in 1876, commissioned by the Institute of Comparative Anatomy at Vienna University to solve a classically esoteric zoological puzzle: how eels copulated. Specialist as he later became in the human testicle and its influence upon the psyche, Freud diligently set out to discover the elusive reproductive organs whose location had baffled investigators since the time of Aristotle. He did not solve the mystery, but I like to imagine him dissecting his four hundred eels in the institute's zoological station here. Solemn, earnest and bearded I fancy him, rubber-gloved and canvas-aproned, slitting them open one after the other in their slimy multitudes. Night after night I see him peeling off his gloves with a sigh to return to his lonely lodgings, and saying a weary goodnight to the lab assistant left to clear up the mess - "Goodnight, Alfredo", "Goodnight, Herr Doktor. Better luck next time, eh?" But the better luck never came; the young genius returned to Vienna empty-handed, so to speak, but perhaps inspired to think more exactly about the castration complex. #Quote by Jan Morris
Genius quotes by E. Haldeman-Julius
#52. A good title is a work of a genius! #Quote by E. Haldeman-Julius
Genius quotes by Bob Colacello
#53. You can't hang around geniuses forever because they end up taking everything you've got. That's why they're the genius and you're not. #Quote by Bob Colacello
Genius quotes by Simon Singh
#54. This special was followed one month later by "Bart the Genius." This was the first genuine episode of The Simpsons , inasmuch as it premiered the famous trademark opening sequence and included the debut of Bart's notorious catchphrase "Eat my shorts." Most noteworthy of all, "Bart the Genius" contains a serious dose of mathematics. In many ways, this episode set the tone for what was to follow over the next two decades, namely a relentless series of numerical references and nods to geometry that would earn The Simpsons a special place in the hearts of mathematicians. #Quote by Simon Singh
Genius quotes by Charles Darwin
#55. Even people who aren't geniuses can outthink the rest of mankind if they develop certain thinking habits. #Quote by Charles Darwin
Genius quotes by Ziad K. Abdelnour
#56. Wealth creation is not a mathematical formula, as the truthseeking
quant geeks still want everyone to believe. In the end, their
lack of real-world experience and pride corrupted their mathematical
genius and destroyed them. You may be able to digitize a daVinci,
but that does not make it daVinci. Creating wealth is personal. It is
creating assets, creating value, or whatever act of self-perpetuation that
drives us to create a legacy. #Quote by Ziad K. Abdelnour
Genius quotes by John Ashbery
#57. The genius of Cornell is that he sees and enables us to see with the eyes of childhood, before our vision got clouded by experience, when objects like a rubber ball or a pocket mirror seemed charged with meaning, and a marble rolling across a wooden floor could be as portentous as a passing comet. #Quote by John Ashbery
Genius quotes by Jay Kristoff
#58. It doesn't take a genius to appeal to the worst in people. All it takes is an asshole and a microphone. #Quote by Jay Kristoff
Genius quotes by Brandon Mull
#59. It doesn't take a genius to plan a perfect assault," Galloran said. "The trouble tends to show up during the execution. #Quote by Brandon Mull
Genius quotes by Charles Horton Cooley
#60. A talent somewhat above mediocrity, shrewd and not too sensitive, is more likely to rise in the world than genius. #Quote by Charles Horton Cooley
Genius quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#61. Genius has infused itself into nature. It indicates itself by a small excess of good, a small balance in brute facts always favorable to the side of reason. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Genius quotes by Isabella Rossellini
#62. David Lynch came out of it a genius, and I came out of it a fat girl. I'm sorry that the only comment I get about the part is the way I look. Commenting on the critics' response to her performance in Blue Velvet #Quote by Isabella Rossellini
Genius quotes by Haruki Murakami
#63. Genius or fool, you don't live in the world alone. You can hide underground or you can build a wall around yourself, but somebody's going to come along and screw up the works. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Genius quotes by Alfred Kazin
#64. What happens whenever we convert a writer into a symbol is that we lose the writer himself in all his indefeasible singularity, his particular inimitable genius. #Quote by Alfred Kazin
Genius quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#65. Thrift is the really romantic thing; economy is more romantic than extravagance... But the thing is true; economy, properly understood, is the more poetic. Thrift is poetic because it is creative; waste is unpoetic because it is waste. It is prosaic to throw money away, because it is prosaic to throw anything away; it is negative; it is a confession of indifference, that is, it is a confession of failure. The most prosaic thing about the house is the dustbin, and the one great objection to the new fastidious and aesthetic homestead is simply that in such a moral menage the dustbin must be bigger than the house. If a man could undertake to make use of all things in his dustbin he would be a broader genius than Shakespeare. When science began to use by-products; when science found that colors could be made out of coaltar, she made her greatest and perhaps her only claim on the real respect of the human soul. Now the aim of the good woman is to use the by-products, or, in other words, to rummage in the dustbin. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Genius quotes by Salvador Dali
#66. I'm going to live forever. Geniuses don't die. #Quote by Salvador Dali
Genius quotes by Leon Krier
#67. The problem was Le Corbusier was a genius and an enormous artist, but he tried to resolve problems to which there is no solution. So the idea to demolish the centre of Paris in order to adapt it to the car - he drew it! - is something not even the most bloody dictators conceived. #Quote by Leon Krier
Genius quotes by Lionel Barrymore
#68. To my mind there is nothing so beautiful or so provocative as a secondhand book store ... To me it is astonishing and miraculous to think that any one of us can poke among the stalls for something to read overnight
and that this something may be the sum of a lifetime of sweat, tears, and genius that some poor, struggling, blessed fellow expended trying to teach us the truth. #Quote by Lionel Barrymore
Genius quotes by Jack Kerouac
#69. Genius gives birth, talent delivers. #Quote by Jack Kerouac
Genius quotes by Arnold Hauser
#70. The other strikingly modern feature of the type of poet which Euripides now introduced into the history of literature is his apparently voluntary refusal to take any part whatever in public life. Euripides was not a soldier as Aeschylus was, nor a priestly dignitary as Sophocles was, but, on the other hand, he is the very first poet who is reported to have possessed a library, and he appears to be also the first poet to lead the life of a scholar in complete retirement from the world. If the bust of him, with its tousled hair, its tired eyes and the embittered lines round the mouth, is a true portrait, and if we are right in seeing in it a discrepancy between body and spirit, and the expression of a restless and dissatisfied life, then we may say that Euripides was the first unhappy poet, the first whose poetry brought him suffering. The notion of genius in the modern sense is not merely completely strange to the ancient world; its poets and artists have nothing of the genius about them. The rational and craftsmanlike elements in art are far more important for them than the irrational and intuitive. Plato's doctrine of enthusiasm emphasized, indeed, that poets owed their work to divine inspiration and not to mere technical ability, but this idea by no means leads to the exaltation of the poet; it only increases the gulf between him and his work, and makes of him a mere instrument of the divine purpose. It is, however, of the essence of the modern notion of genius that there i #Quote by Arnold Hauser
Genius quotes by Edwin Hubbel Chapin
#71. The highest genius never flowers in satire, but culminates in sympathy with that which is best in human nature, and appeals to it. #Quote by Edwin Hubbel Chapin
Genius quotes by Alex Cox
#72. In Goodfellas they have this one scene where the camera goes down some steps and walks through a kitchen into a restaurant and the critics were all over this as evidence of the genius of Scorsese and Scorsese is a genius. #Quote by Alex Cox
Genius quotes by Criss Jami
#73. So, how close are love and genius, really? We know that they are both mentioned far more than lived. #Quote by Criss Jami
Genius quotes by Samuel Bryan
#74. The evil genius of darkness presided at its birth, it came forth under the veil of mystery, its true features being carefully concealed, and every deceptive art has been and is practicing to have this spurious brat received as the genuine offspring of heaven-born liberty. So fearful are its patrons that you should discern the imposition, that they have hurried on its adoption, with the greatest precipitation. After so recent a triumph over British despots, after such torrents of blood and treasure have been spent, after involving ourselves in the distresses of an arduous war, and incurring such a debt for the express purpose of asserting the rights of humanity; it is truly astonishing that a set of men among ourselves should have the effrontery to attempt the destruction ofour liberties. But in this enlightened age to hope to dupe the people by the arts they are practicing is still more extraordinary. #Quote by Samuel Bryan
Genius quotes by Mark Twain
#75. Geniuses are people who dash off weird, wild, incomprehensible poems with astonishing facility, & then go & get booming drunk & sleep in the gutter. Genius elevates a man to ineffable speres [sic] far above the vulgar world, & fills his soul with a regal contempt for the gross & sordid things of earth. It is probably on account of this that people who have genius do not pay their board, as a general thing. #Quote by Mark Twain
Genius quotes by William Shakespeare
#76. Mum, mum,
He that keeps nor crust nor crumb,
Weary of all, shall want some. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Genius quotes by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
#77. In the creative process, my ego has always been a huge tyrant ... a dictator and kind of rude and very misleading, because sometimes when I'm doing something, I say, "This is great! This is fantastic! Very genius!" And 20 minutes later, I feel like a dead jellyfish. "You are a stupid a**hole. This is a piece of sh*t. Nobody will care about it." #Quote by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
Genius quotes by Terry Pratchett
#78. Genius is always allowed some leeway, once the hammer has been pried from its hands and the blood has been cleaned up. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Genius quotes by Miles Davis
#79. Keith, how does it feel to be a genius? #Quote by Miles Davis
Genius quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#80. The death of a dear friend, wife, brother, lover, which seemed nothing but privation, somewhat later assumes the aspect of a guide or genius; for it commonly operates revolutions in our way of life, terminates an epoch of infancy or of youth which was waiting to be closed, breaks up a wonted occupation, or a household, or style of living, and allows the formation of new ones more friendly to the growth of character. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Genius quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#81. Every wild apple shrub excites our expectation thus, somewhat as every wild child. It is, perhaps, a prince in disguise. What a lesson to man! So are human beings, referred to the highest standard, the celestial fruit which they suggest and aspire to bear, browsed on by fate; and only the most persistent and strongest genius defends itself and prevails, sends a tender scion upward at last, and drops its perfect fruit on the ungrateful earth. Poets and philosophers and statesmen thus spring up in the country pastures, and outlast the hosts of unoriginal men. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Genius quotes by Chuck Wendig
#82. Not every writer needs a plan, but in my experience many believe they don't need a plan when, frankly, they do. I was that kind of writer: I thought, ha ha ha, stupid people saying I should outline or do preparatory work, those silly assholes with their misunderstanding of my genius. If you find you're lost in the woods of your own fiction and feel like giving up
it might be because you have no plan. You can retrofit one. Doing that will help put you back on track and give your current writing a jolt of needed organization. #Quote by Chuck Wendig
Genius quotes by T. S. Eliot
#83. James's critical genius comes out most tellingly in his mastery over, his baffling escape from, Ideas; a mastery and an escape which are perhaps the last test of a superior intelligence. He had a mind so fine that no idea could violate it. [ ... ] In England, ideas run wild and pasture on the emotions; instead of thinking with our feelings (a very different thing) we corrupt our feelings with ideas; we produce the public, the political, the emotional idea, evading sensation and thought. [ ... ] James in his novels is like the best French critics in maintaining a point of view, a view-point untouched by the parasite idea. He is the most intelligent man of his generation.
(Little Review, 1918) #Quote by T. S. Eliot
Genius quotes by Blake Nelson
#84. But I think Cybil was my biggest fan. She cut out my articles and hung them in her locker and we were always cracking up how if you wrote the simplest, most obvious thing in the world people thought you were a genius. #Quote by Blake Nelson
Genius quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#85. Genius is the naturalist or geographer of the supersensible regions, and draws their map; and, by acquainting us with new fields of activity, cools our affection for the old. These are at once accepted as the reality, of which the world we have conversed with is the show. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Genius quotes by D. Todd Christofferson
#86. The scriptures, for example, discredit an ancient philosophy that has come back into vogue in our day-the philosophy of Korihor that there are no absolute moral standards, that "every man prospers according to his genius, and that every man conquers according to his strength; and whatsoever a man does is no crime" and "that when a man is dead, that is the end thereof". #Quote by D. Todd Christofferson
Genius quotes by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
#87. What is genius but the power of expressing a new individuality? #Quote by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Genius quotes by Ron Chernow
#88. His military triumphs had been neither frequent nor epic in scale. He had lost more battles than he had won, had botched several through strategic blunders, and had won at Yorktown only with the indispensable aid of the French Army and fleet. But he was a different kind of general fighting a different kind of war, and his military prowess cannot be judged by the usual scorecard of battles won and lost. His fortitude in keeping the impoverished Continental Army intact was a major historic accomplishment. It always stood on the brink of dissolution, and Washington was the one figure who kept it together, the spiritual and managerial genius of the whole enterprise: he had been resilient in the face of every setback, courageous in the face of every danger. He was that rare general who was great between battles and not just during them. #Quote by Ron Chernow
Genius quotes by Efiong Etuk
#89. It is in everyone's interest that every person's creative genius be encouraged and allowed to develop and express. #Quote by Efiong Etuk
Genius quotes by Jean-Georges Noverre
#90. This art, born of genius and good taste, can become beautiful and varied to an infinite degree. #Quote by Jean-Georges Noverre
Genius quotes by Adam Smith
#91. By nature a philosopher is not in genius and disposition half so different from a street porter, as a mastiff is from a greyhound #Quote by Adam Smith
Genius quotes by Joyce Wycoff
#92. How many geniuses die undiscovered, not only by others but, more sadly, by themselves? #Quote by Joyce Wycoff
Genius quotes by Tom Robbins
#93. Genius may stand on the shoulders of giants, but it stands alone. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Genius quotes by Christopher Dutton
#94. Attacking genius and passion as immoral , the ? cries "how dare they?" and answers with its own question ... #Quote by Christopher Dutton
Genius quotes by Hortense Calisher
#95. Agony without genius was gaucherie. #Quote by Hortense Calisher
Genius quotes by Orison Swett Marden
#96. Genius unexecuted is no more genius than a bushel of acorns is a forest of oaks. #Quote by Orison Swett Marden
Genius quotes by Kim Newman
#97. No crime too small' was never exactly Moriarty's slogan, but the criminal genius would apply himself to minor offences if an unusual challenge was presented. #Quote by Kim Newman
Genius quotes by Robert Bosnak
#98. Aristotle said29 that "the greatest thing by far is to be a master of metaphor. It is the one thing that cannot be learnt from others; and it is also a sign of genius, since a good metaphor implies an intuitive perception of similarity in dissimilars. #Quote by Robert Bosnak
Genius quotes by Jenji Kohan
#99. I begged her to write a song and she said yes. I am a huge Regina Spektor fan. I think she's a genius and just a lovely soul, and I wanted her voice on it. And she agreed, which is just the coolest thing, ever. She knocked it out of the park. #Quote by Jenji Kohan
Genius quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#100. Boldness has power, magic and genius in it. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Genius quotes by Michael Grant
#101. What do you think that fish is?' Sam asked Astrid.
She peered closely at the alleged fish. 'I think that's an example of Pesce inedibilis,' she said.
'Yeah?' Sam made a face. 'Do you think it's okay to eat?'
Astrid sighed theatrically. 'Pesce inedibilis? Inedible? Joke, duh. Try to keep up, Sam, I made that really easy for you.'
Sam smiled. 'You know, a real genius would have known I wouldn't get it. Ergo, you are not a real genius. Hah. That's right. I threw down an 'ergo.'
She gave him a pitying look. 'That's very impressive, Sam. Especially from a boy who has twenty-two different uses for the word 'dude. #Quote by Michael Grant
Genius quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#102. Dream what others do not.
Imagine what others have not.
Do what others will not.
Achieve what others could not. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Genius quotes by Samuel Johnson
#103. Remember that nothing will supply the want of prudence, and that negligence and irregularity long continued will make knowledge useless, wit ridiculous, and genius contemptible. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Genius quotes by Walter Lippmann

Genius quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#105. Neither birth nor sex forms a limit to genius. #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Genius quotes by Robert Musil
#106. For a long time now a hint of aversion had lain on everything he did and experienced, a shadow of impotence and loneliness, an all-encompassing distaste for which he could not find the complementary inclination. He felt at times as though he had been born with a talent for which there was at present no objective. #Quote by Robert Musil
Genius quotes by Lee Clow
#107. [In 2011 on Steve Jobs] He was the most amazing person I have ever know. He was a genius. He was an innovator. He was the best client we ever had. He was my friend. #Quote by Lee Clow
Genius quotes by Mark Twain
#108. It is impossible that a genius - at least a literary genius - can ever be discovered by his intimates; they are so close to him that he is out of focus to them and they can't get at his proportions; they can't perceive that there is any considerable difference between his bulk and their own. #Quote by Mark Twain
Genius quotes by Dwight D. Eisenhower
#109. Organizations cannot make a genius out of an incompetent. On the other hand, disorganization can scarcely fail to result in efficiency. #Quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower
Genius quotes by Stanley Victor Paskavich
#110. If every Genius has a touch of Madness, does every Normal person have a touch of Ignorance ? #Quote by Stanley Victor Paskavich
Genius quotes by Carl Von Clausewitz
#111. Talent and genius operate outside the rules, and theory conflicts with practice. #Quote by Carl Von Clausewitz
Genius quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#112. Eccentricity is one syndrome of genius;
it seldom needs a cure. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Genius quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#113. Of course, there is a portion of reading quite indispensable to a wise man. History and exact science he must learn by laborious reading. Colleges, in like manner, have their indispensable office, - to teach elements. But they can only highly serve us, when they aim not to drill, but to create; when they gather from far every ray of various genius to their hospitable halls, and, by the concentrated fires, set the hearts of their youth on flame. Thought and knowledge are natures in which apparatus and pretension avail nothing. Gowns, and pecuniary foundations, though of towns of gold, can never countervail the least sentence or syllable of wit. Forget this, and our American colleges will recede in their public importance, whilst they grow richer every year. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Genius quotes by John Jeremiah Sullivan
#114. Thinking you're a genius is death. #Quote by John Jeremiah Sullivan
Genius quotes by Andy Kindler

Genius quotes by K.C. Blackbyrn

Genius quotes by Dwight D. Eisenhower

Genius quotes by Stanley Unwin
#118. To write books is easy, it requires only pen and ink and the ever-patient paper. To print books is a little more difficult, because genius so often rejoices in illegible handwriting. To read books is more difficult still, because of a tendency to go to sleep. But the most difficult task of all that
a mortal man can embark on is to sell a book. #Quote by Stanley Unwin
Genius quotes by Jean-Francois De Saint-Lambert
#119. Genius: Range of mind, power of imagination, and responsiveness of soul: this is genius. The man of genius has a soul with greater range, can therefore be struck by the feelings of all beings, is concerned with everything in nature, and never receives an idea that does not evoke a feeling. Everything stirs him and everything is retained within him.
When the soul has been moved by an object itself, it is even more affected by the memory of the object. But in a man of genius imagination goes further: it recalls ideas with a more vivid feeling than it received them, because to these ideas are connected a thousand others more appropriate to arouse the feeling. #Quote by Jean-Francois De Saint-Lambert
Genius quotes by Sophie Kinsella
#120. We're playing Scrabble. It's a nightmare."
"Scrabble?" He sounds surprised. "Scrabble's great."
"Not when you're playing with a family of geniuses, it's not. They all put words like 'iridiums'. And I put 'pig'. #Quote by Sophie Kinsella
Genius quotes by Liz Wiseman
#121. Perhaps these leaders understood that the person sitting at the apex of the intelligence hierarchy is the genius maker, not the genius. #Quote by Liz Wiseman
Genius quotes by Horace
#122. As a rule, adversity reveals genius and prosperity hides it #Quote by Horace
Genius quotes by Edwin Percy Whipple
#123. Genius is not a single power, but a combination of great powers. It reasons, but it is not reasoning; it judges, but it is not judgment; imagines, but it is not imagination; it feels deeply and fiercely, but it is not passion. It is neither, because it is all. #Quote by Edwin Percy Whipple
Genius quotes by Jane Austen
#124. And is that all you can say for him?" cried Marianne, indignantly. "But what are his manners on more intimate acquaintance? What his pursuits, his talents, and genius?" Sir John was rather puzzled. #Quote by Jane Austen
Genius quotes by An Wang
#125. Success is more a function of consistent common sense than it is of genius. #Quote by An Wang
Genius quotes by Abdul Kalam
#126. A Fool can become a Genius when he understands he is a Fool but. A Genius can become a Fool when he understands he is a Genius. #Quote by Abdul Kalam
Genius quotes by Deepak Chopra
#127. By looking at the behavior of the cells in our own body, we can observe the most extraordinary and efficient expression of The Seven Spiritual Laws. This is the genius of nature's intelligence. These are the thoughts of God - the rest are details. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Genius quotes by Alexander Herzen
#128. To build a city where it is impossible to build a city is madness in itself, but to build there one of the most elegant and grandest of cities is the madness of genius. #Quote by Alexander Herzen
Genius quotes by Parker J. Palmer
#129. I believe in democracy - in its indisputable achievements and its unfulfilled promise. I believe in American political institutions - in the genius inherent in their design and in the undeniable good they have done when put to their best use. I believe in the power of the human heart - in its capacity for truth and justice, love and forgiveness. #Quote by Parker J. Palmer
Genius quotes by Elise Kova
#130. The line between genius and madness is so very thin. #Quote by Elise Kova
Genius quotes by Tom McCarthy

Genius quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo

Genius quotes by Erik Larson
#133. She also has some choice observations to offer about Fisher. "I said both to my father and Winston that though I did not doubt Lord Fisher's genius I thought him dangerous because I believed him to be mad" (quoted in Hough, Winston and Clementine, 284). On another occasion, she remarked, "What a strange man he is!" (quoted in Hough, Winston and Clementine, 306). #Quote by Erik Larson
Genius quotes by S.J. Kincaid
#134. Whenever he closed his eyes, he still saw her flying, fighting with ferocious genius. He still remembered that kiss. #Quote by S.J. Kincaid
Genius quotes by Ali Wong
#135. A reporter once asked me why I think progressive men who earn significantly less than their breadwinning wives still won't quit their jobs to take care of their children. Why do they still hold on to their careers, even if taking care of the children would make more financial sense because the cost of childcare is higher than their net salary?
I think I know the answer to that now, and it sucks. Women are not expected to live a life for themselves. When women dedicate their lives to children, it is deemed a worthy and respectable choice. When women dedicate themselves to a passion outside of the family that doesn't involve worshiping their husbands or taking care of their kids, they're seen as selfish, cold, or unfit mothers. But when a man spends hours grueling over a craft, profession, or project, he's admired and seen as a genius. And when a man finds a woman who worships him, who dedicates her life to serving him, he's lucky. But when a man dedicates himself to taking care of his children it's seen as a last resort. That it must be because he ran out of other options. That it's plan Z. That it's an indicator of his inability to provide for his family. Basically, that he's a fucking loser. I think it's one of the most important falsehoods we need to shatter when talking about women's rights. #Quote by Ali Wong
Genius quotes by John F. Kennedy
#136. All of us do not have equal talent, but all of us should have an equal opportunity to develop our talent. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Genius quotes by James Morcan
#137. Developing a genius mindset essentially comes down to two things: operating at speed and using the subconscious mind more than the conscious. This intuitive or relaxed approach to study is the polar opposite of traditional and mainstream forms of education. #Quote by James Morcan
Genius quotes by Al Spalding
#138. The genius of our institutions is democratic - baseball is a democratic game. #Quote by Al Spalding
Genius quotes by Robert Lacey
#139. Costello must have been the guiding genius behind the 1929 Atlantic City gathering when Al Capone came to confer with the bootleggers of the East Coast. #Quote by Robert Lacey
Genius quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
#140. Emulation, even in brutes, is sensitively "nervous." See the tremor of the thoroughbred racer before he starts. The dray-horse does not tremble, but he does not emulate. It is not his work to run a race. Says Marcus Antoninus, "It is all one to a stone whether it be thrown upward or downward." Yet the emulation of a man of genius is seldom with his contemporaries, that is, inwardly in his mind, although outwardly in his act it would seem so. The competitors with whom his secret ambition seems to vie are the dead. #Quote by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Genius quotes by Seb Kirby

Genius quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#147. Genius tries to conquer the world with art, with songs, with words; stupid tries to conquer it with sword, with guns, with arrows! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Genius quotes by Marcel Proust
#148. Similarly the men who produce works of genius are not those who live in the most delicate atmosphere, whose conversation is most brilliant, or their culture broadest, but those who have had the power, ceasing in a moment to live only for themselves, to make use of their personality as of a mirror. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Genius quotes by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
#149. The charm, one might say the genius, of memory is that it is choosy, chancy and temperamental. #Quote by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Genius quotes by Nikola Tesla
#150. If the genius of invention were to reveal to-morrow the secret of immortality, of eternal beauty and youth, for which all humanity is aching, the same inexorable agents which prevent a mass from changing suddenly its velocity would likewise resist the force of the new knowledge until time gradually modifies human thought. #Quote by Nikola Tesla
Genius quotes by Abigail George
#151. Yes, I know that now that there is truth in beauty and beauty in truth. My nature is to be depressive and come out of it and write, and enjoy writing and feeling as if I have a passion and excitement and love and euphoria for it and then I go 'back to sleep again' where I can eat and watch television and not work, not be productive and then just as if a magic switch is turned on I can do it all over again. I don't mind the being depressed part. Sometimes it seems to fuel me. The anger though is gone now that was there in my twenties and even earlier in my youth. Your voice is Tolstoy's, Hemingway's, Updike's, Styron's, Mcewan's, Greene's, Fugard's, Kundera's, Rilke's while I am the incarnate of Radcliffe Hall crossing both genders effortlessly. You betray nothing. There is son in the picture. A small boy but you don't introduce him to me. Obsessions are unhealthy creatures. They make you mentally ill, emotionally unstable; leave you with a chemistry of deep sadness in your life. I have my writing. It keeps me from disintegrating into fractions. I should stop now before I begin to make myself cry. #Quote by Abigail George
Genius quotes by Ray Kurzweil
#152. Those with engineering skills will build tomorrow's genius computers. But those with the ability to create knowledge of any kind will be the ones who are best able to extract great value from them. The way to create value in the age of genius machines will be to compile and disseminate knowledge that other people will find useful. #Quote by Ray Kurzweil
Genius quotes by Mary MacLane
#153. I shall have to miss forever some beautiful, wonderful things because of that wretched, lonely childhood. There will always be a lacking, a wanting -- some dead branches that never grew leaves. It is not deaths and murders and plots and wars that make life tragedy. It is day after day, and year after year, and Nothing. It is a sunburned little hand reached out and Nothing put into it. #Quote by Mary MacLane
Genius quotes by Samuel Johnson
#154. Among the many inconsistencies which folly produces or infirmity suffers in the human mind, there has often been observed a manifest and striking contrariety between the life of an author and his writings ... Those whom the appearance of virtue or the evidence of genius has tempted to a nearer knowledge of the writer, in whose performances they may be found, have indeed had frequent reason to repent their curiosity. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Genius quotes by Adeline Yen Mah
#155. First, you must believe that you can do anything you set your mind to. Remember the old adage: genius is ten percent inspiration, ninety percent perspiration. #Quote by Adeline Yen Mah
Genius quotes by Eliphas Levi
#156. To be sucked down by this whirling stream is to fall into abysses of madness, more frightful than those of death; to expel the shades of this chaos and compel it to give perfect forms to our thoughts - this is to be a man of genius; it is to create, it is to be victorious over hell! The #Quote by Eliphas Levi
Genius quotes by Fred Hoyle
#157. Outstanding examples of genius - a Mozart, a Shakespeare, or a Carl Friedrich Gauss - are markers on the path along which our species appears destined to tread. #Quote by Fred Hoyle
Genius quotes by Eugene Delacroix
#158. Talent does whatever it wants to do. Genius does only what it can. #Quote by Eugene Delacroix
Genius quotes by Marcel Proust
#159. But the true nature which we repress continues nevertheless to abide within us. Thus it is that at times, if we read the latest masterpiece of a man of genius, we are delighted to find in it all those of our own reflexions which we have despised, joys and sorrows which we have repressed, a whole world of feelings we have scorned, and whose value the book in which we discover them afresh suddenly teaches us. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Genius quotes by Elbert Hubbard
#160. Genius is only the power of making continuous efforts. #Quote by Elbert Hubbard
Genius quotes by Kristopher Jansma
#161. The best thing to do - usually - was to let him play these things out. Who was I to tell a genius it was time to put his clothes back on? #Quote by Kristopher Jansma
Genius quotes by Jean Houston
#162. When we are calling forth the depth and genius of the other, then we grow. #Quote by Jean Houston
Genius quotes by Toba Beta
#163. If there were a master of stupidity in this world,
I would really love to listen to his success story. #Quote by Toba Beta
Genius quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#164. Painting seems to be to the eye what dancing is to the limbs. When that has educated the frame to self-possession, to nimbleness,to grace, the steps of the dancing-master are better forgotten; so painting teaches me the splendor of color and the expression of form, and as I see many pictures and higher genius in the art, I see the boundless opulence of the pencil, the indifferency in which the artist stands free to choose out of the possible forms. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Genius quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#165. Love's hearts are faithful, but not fond,
Bound for the just, but not beyond;
Not glad, as the low-loving herd,
Of self in other still preferred,
But they have heartily designed
The benefit of broad mankind.
And they serve men austerely,
After their own genius, clearly,
Without a false humility. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Genius quotes by Mark Twain
#166. My books are like water; those of the great geniuses are wine. (Fortunately) everybody drinks water. #Quote by Mark Twain
Genius quotes by Thomas B. Macaulay
#167. This is the highest miracle of genius, that things which are not should be as though they were, that the imaginations of one mind should become the personal recollections of another. #Quote by Thomas B. Macaulay
Genius quotes by Stefan Zweig
#168. The transformation of the impossible into reality is always the mark of a demonic will. The only way to recognize a military genius is by the fact that, during the war, he will mock the rules of warfare and will employ creative improvisation instead of tested methods and he will do so at the right moment. #Quote by Stefan Zweig
Genius quotes by Rene Descartes

Genius quotes by Don Van Vliet
#170. Well, the way you'd been, old lady
I could see the fear in your windows
Under your furry crawling brow
A silver bow rings up in inches
You were afraid you'd be the devil's red wife
But it's alright, God dug your dance
And would have you young and in his harum #Quote by Don Van Vliet
Genius quotes by William Wickenden
#171. Organization is simply the means by which the acts of ordinary men can be made to add up to extraordinary results. To this idea of progress that does not wait on some lucky break, some chance discovery, or some rare stroke of genius, but instead is achieved through systematic, cumulative effort, the engineer has contributed brilliantly. #Quote by William Wickenden
Genius quotes by Novalis
#172. Almost all genius up to now was one-sided - the result of a sickly constitution. One type had too much sense of the external, the other too much inner sense. Seldom could nature achieve a balance between the two - a complete constitution of genius. Often a perfect proportion arose by chance, but this could never endure because it was not comprehended and fixed by the spirit - they remained fortunate moments. The first genius that penetrated itself found here the exemplary germ of an immeasurable world. It made a discovery which must have been the most remarkable in the history of the world - for with it there begins a whole new epoch for humanity - and true history of all kinds becomes possible for the first time at this stage - for the way that had been traversed hitherto now makes up a proper whole that can be entirely elucidated. That point outside the world is given, and now Archimedes can fulfill his promise. #Quote by Novalis
Genius quotes by Jordan Ellenberg
#173. Genius is a thing that happens, not a kind of person. #Quote by Jordan Ellenberg
Genius quotes by William Blake
#174. He who loves feels love descend into him and if he has wisdom may perceive it from the Poetic Genius which is the Lord. #Quote by William Blake
Genius quotes by Ian Fleming
#175. If I wait for the genius to come, it just doesn't arrive. #Quote by Ian Fleming
Genius quotes by Molly Crabapple
#176. Talent is essential, but cash buys the opportunity for that talent to be discovered. To pretend otherwise is to spit in the face of every broke genius. #Quote by Molly Crabapple
Genius quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#177. I was more independent than any farmer in Concord, for I was not anchored to a house or farm, but could follow the bent of my genius, which is a very crooked one, every moment. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Genius quotes by Matt Dallas
#178. I'm not exactly a maths genius - I'm really good at maths, maths was my favorite subject in school, but I wasn't a genius. #Quote by Matt Dallas
Genius quotes by Dmitri Shostakovich
#179. The real geniuses know where their writing has to be good and where they can get away with some mediocrity. #Quote by Dmitri Shostakovich
Genius quotes by Evgeny Morozov
#180. It is easy to be seen as either a genius or a crank. If you have a Ph.D., at least you somewhat lower the chances that you will be seen as a crank. #Quote by Evgeny Morozov
Genius quotes by James Morcan
#181. We've all experienced pondering a problem all day long only to find we receive the solution when forgetting about the problem and thinking of something else. When we stop concentrating so hard, we allow our subconscious to flourish, and those who do this more than others are often called geniuses. #Quote by James Morcan
Genius quotes by Joe Satriani
#182. I always use the Jeff Beck model. Jeff Beck is just a genius, and he keeps getting better ... If there's anybody in your field you want to aspire to be like, it is a guy who does what he wants to do. Every record at least he comes out with one thing that makes everybodys' jaw drop ... I would hope that Jimi Hendrix would have done that, although, man, the odds are against him because he did so much in such a short amount of time ... #Quote by Joe Satriani
Genius quotes by Theodor W. Adorno
#183. The element of truth in the concept of genius is to be sought in the object, in what is open, not confined by repetition. #Quote by Theodor W. Adorno
Genius quotes by Odd Nerdrum
#184. I have no ideals. I have no will that the world should be any better or worse or anything ... Because I know that for every genius there exists a robbing murderer. There is nothing to do about that. The world is such that if you want to find the intensity within the genuine, you will at the same time find the criminals around the nearest corner. And if you eliminate that genetic quality in the human being, then everyone will become very inactive and very boring, but on the other hand we get rid of criminality. #Quote by Odd Nerdrum
Genius quotes by Mario Livio
#185. Indeed, the genius of Abel and Galois could be compared only to a supernova-an exploding star that for a short while outshines all the billions of stars in its host galaxy. #Quote by Mario Livio
Genius quotes by Stendhal
#186. One of the traits of genius is not to drag its thought through the rut worn by vulgar minds. #Quote by Stendhal
Genius quotes by David Foster Wallace
#187. I mean, Tarantino is such a SHMUCK 90 percent of the time. But ten percent of the time, I've seen genius shining off the guy. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Genius quotes by Philippe Starck
#188. I'm not a god, I'm not a genius, I'm not a monk, I make non-design for non-consumers. I don't know if I do exist. #Quote by Philippe Starck
Genius quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#189. If one listens to the faintest but constant suggestions of his genius, which are certainly true, he sees not to what extremes, or even insanity, it may lead him; and yet that way, as he grows more resolute and faithful, his road lies. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Genius quotes by Kayambila Mpulamasaka
#190. Understand the rules then break them. That's creativity. #Quote by Kayambila Mpulamasaka
Genius quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#191. On, I don't think I'm a genius!' cried Josie, growing calm and sober as she listened to the melodious voice and looked into the expressive face that filled her with confidence, so strong, sincere and kindly was it. 'I only want to find out if I have talent enough to go on, and after years of study be able to act well in any of the good plays people never tire of seeing. I don't expected to be a Mrs. Siddons or a Miss Cameron, much as I long to be; but it does seem as if I had something in me which can't come out in any way but this. When I act I'm perfectly happy. I seem to live, to be in my own world, and each new part is a new friend. I love Shakespeare, and am never tired of his splendid people. Of course I don't understand it all; but it's like being alone at night with the mountains and the stars, solemn and grand, and I try to imagine how it will look when the sun comes up, and all is glorious and clear to me. I can't see, but I feel the beauty, and long to express it. #Quote by Louisa May Alcott
Genius quotes by Joseph Frank
#192. Years later, when Dostoevsky was reading the book of Job once again, he wrote his wife that it put him into such a state of "unhealthy rapture" that he almost cried. "It's a strange thing, Anya, this books is one of the first in my life which made an impression on me; I was then still almost a child." There is an allusion to this revelatory experience of the young boy in The Brothers Karamazov, where Zosima recalls being struck by a reading of the book of Job at the age of eight and feeling that "for the first time in my life I consciously received the seed of God's word in my heart" (9:287). This seed was one day to flower into the magnificent growth of Ivan Karamazov's passionate protest against God's injustice and the Legend of the Grand Inquisitor, but it also grew into Alyosha's submission to the awesomeness of the infinite before which Job too had once bowed his head, and into Zosima's teaching of the necessity for an ultimate faith in the goodness of God's mysterious wisdom. It is Dostoevsky's genius as a writer to have been able to feel (and to express) both these extremes of rejection and acceptance. While the tension of this polarity may have developed out of the ambivalence of Dostoevsky's psychodynamic relationship with his father, what is important is to see how early it was transposed and projected into the religious symbolism of the eternal problem of theodicy. #Quote by Joseph Frank
Genius quotes by Sante D'Orazio
#193. I was in Milan, and somebody gave me a Trussardi diary, and I thought 'Genius.' Inside I put the Polaroids, how much film I shot, who I shot with. This way, for billing later on, I had all the information. #Quote by Sante D'Orazio

Genius quotes by Oscar Wilde
#197. I was a man who stood in symbolic relations to the art and culture of my age ... The gods had given me almost everything. I had genius, a distinguished name, high social position, brilliancy,intellectual daring; I made art a philosophy, and philosophy an art: I altered the minds of men and the colour of things: there was nothing I said or did that did not make people wonder ... I treated Art as the supreme reality, and life as mere mode of fiction: I awoke the imagination of my century so that it created myth and legend around me: I summed up all systems in a phrase, and all existence in an epigram. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Genius quotes by Carl Icahn
#198. When friends and acquaintances are telling you that you are a genius, before you accept their opinion, take a moment to remember what you always thought of their opinions in the past. #Quote by Carl Icahn
