Intelligent Man quotes by Rajneesh
#1. An intelligent man, a man who has a little meditative consciousness, can make his life a beautiful piece of art, can make it so full of love and full of music and full of poetry and full of dance that there are no limitations for it. Life is not hard. It is man's stupidity that makes it hard. #Quote by Rajneesh
Intelligent Man quotes by Francois Truffaut
#2. There are two kinds of directors; those who have the public in mind when they conceive and make their films and those who don't consider the public at all. For the former, cinema is an art of spectacle; for the latter, it is an individual adventure. There is nothing intrinsically better about one or the other; it's simply a matter of different approaches. For Hitchcock as for Renoir, as for that matter almost all American directors, a film has not succeeded unless it is a success, that is, unless it touches the public that one has had in mind right from the moment of choosing the subject matter to the end of production. While Bresson, Tati, Rossellini, Ray make films their own way and then invite the public to join the "game," Renoir, Clouzot, Hitchcock and Hawks make movies for the public, and ask themselves all the questions they think will interest their audience. Alfred Hitchcock, who is a remarkably intelligent man, formed the habit early--right from the start of his career in England--of predicting each aspect of his films. All his life he has worked to make his own tastes coincide with the public', emphasizing humor in his English period and suspense in his American period. This dosage of humor and suspense has made Hitchcock one of the most commercial directors in the world (his films regularly bring in four times what they cost). It is the strict demands he makes on himself and on his art that have made him a great director. #Quote by Francois Truffaut
Intelligent Man quotes by T. S. Eliot
#3. 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
Intelligent Man quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#4. One of the most tragicomic things in life is that when a man makes an imaginary thing – such as a religion – as his own flag and carries it all his life and even dies for it! An intelligent man has only one flag: Flag of reason and science! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Intelligent Man quotes by Herman Melville
#5. Now envy and antipathy, passions irreconcilable in reason, nevertheless in fact may spring conjoined like Chang and Eng in one birth. Is Envy then such a monster? Well, though many an arraigned mortal has in hopes of mitigated penalty pleaded guilty to horrible actions, did anybody ever seriously confess to envy? Something there is in it universally felt to be more shameful than even felonious crime. And not only does everybody disown it, but the better sort are inclined to incredulity when it is in earnest imputed to an intelligent man. But since it's lodgement is in the heart and not the brain, no degree of intellect supplies a guarantee against it. #Quote by Herman Melville
Intelligent Man quotes by Brenda Rothert
#6. Because going out with an attractive intelligent man who is obviously ass over teakettle for you would be so awful? #Quote by Brenda Rothert
Intelligent Man quotes by Simone Weil
#7. The intelligent man who is proud of his intelligence is like the condemned man who is proud of his large cell. #Quote by Simone Weil
Intelligent Man quotes by Beatrice Weinreich
#8. Once three men were confined in a pitch-dark prison. Two of the men were intelligent, but one of them was a simpleton who knew nothing at all: he couldn't put his clothes on, he didn't know how to eat; nothing. One of the intelligent men worked hard to teach the simpleton to dress himself, to eat, to hold a spoon, and so on. The other intelligent man did nothing at all. One day the hardworking man asked the indifferent one, "Why don't you make some effort to help teach the simpleton?" The other replied, "In this darkness you'll teach him nothing, no matter how many years you spend. I use my time thinking of ways to break a hole in the wall to let in the light. When that happens, he'll learn on his own what he needs to know. #Quote by Beatrice Weinreich
Intelligent Man quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#9. I could not become anything; neither good nor bad; neither a scoundrel nor an honest man; neither a hero nor an insect. And now I am eking out my days in my corner, taunting myself with the bitter and entirely useless consolation that an intelligent man cannot seriously become anything, that only a fool can become something. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Intelligent Man quotes by Doris Lessing
#10. I find myself increasingly shocked at the unthinking and automatic rubbishing of men which is now so part of our culture that it is hardly even noticed.

Great things have been achieved through feminism. We now have pretty much equality at least on the pay and opportunities front, though almost nothing has been done on child care, the real liberation.

We have many wonderful, clever, powerful women everywhere, but what is happening to men? Why did this have to be at the cost of men?

I was in a class of nine- and ten-year-olds, girls and boys, and this young woman was telling these kids that the reason for wars was the innately violent nature of men.

You could see the little girls, fat with complacency and conceit while the little boys sat there crumpled, apologising for their existence, thinking this was going to be the pattern of their lives. The teacher tried to catch my eye, thinking I would approve of this rubbish. This kind of thing is happening in schools all over the place and no one says a thing.

It has become a kind of religion that you can't criticise because then you become a traitor to the great cause, which I am not.

It is time we began to ask who are these women who continually rubbish men. The most stupid, ill-educated and nasty woman can rubbish the nicest, kindest and most intelligent man and no one protests.

Men seem to be so cowed that they can't fight back, and it is time they did. #Quote by Doris Lessing
Intelligent Man quotes by William Wordsworth
#11. Mark the babe not long accustomed to this breathing world; One that hath barely learned to shape a smile, though yet irrational of soul, to grasp with tiny finger - to let fall a tear; And, as the heavy cloud of sleep dissolves, To stretch his limbs, becoming, as might seem. The outward functions of intelligent man. #Quote by William Wordsworth
Intelligent Man quotes by Nikolai Gogol
#12. However stupid a fool's words may be, they are sometimes enough to confound an intelligent man. #Quote by Nikolai Gogol
Intelligent Man quotes by H.L. Mencken
#13. The average schoolmaster is and always must be essentially an ass, for how can one imagine an intelligent man engaging in so puerile an avocation. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Intelligent Man quotes by Sam Neill
#14. No intelligent man wears a moustache voluntarily - you can write that down. #Quote by Sam Neill
Intelligent Man quotes by H.L. Mencken
#15. A metaphysician is one who, when you remark that twice two makes four, demands to know what you mean by twice, what by two, what by makes, and what by four. For asking such questions metaphysicians are supported in oriental luxury in the universities, and respected as educated and intelligent men. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Intelligent Man quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#16. How does it come about that what an intelligent man expresses is much stupider than what remains inside him? #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Intelligent Man quotes by Gautama Buddha
#17. Let him the intelligent man admonish, let him teach, let him forbid what is improper ! - he will be beloved of the good, by the bad he will be hated. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Intelligent Man quotes by Rory Miller
#18. No intelligent man has ever lost a fight to someone who said 'I'm gonna kick your ass'. #Quote by Rory Miller
Intelligent Man quotes by Bertrand Russell
#19. Two things are to be remembered: that a man whose opinions and theories are worth studying may be presumed to have had some intelligence, but that no man is likely to have arrived at complete and final truth on any subject whatever. When an intelligent man expresses a view which seems to us obviously absurd, we should not attempt to prove that it is somehow true, but we should try to understand how it ever came toseemtrue. Thisexercise of historical and psychological imagination at once enlarges the scope of our thinking, and helps us to realize how foolish many of our own cherished prejudices will seem to an age which has a different temper of mind. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Intelligent Man quotes by Debasish Mridha
#20. A wise man understands, an intelligent man knows, but a fool pretends to know. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Intelligent Man quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#21. The reason why I consider myself a clever man is simply because I could never in my life finish anything I'd started. All right, I am a talker, a harmless, boring talker as we all are. But what can I do if the direct and sole purpose of every intelligent man is to talk, that is to say, to waste his time deliberately? #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Intelligent Man quotes by R.K. Narayan
#22. The difference between a simpleton and an intelligent man, according to the man who is convinced that he is of the latter category, is that the former wholeheartedly accepts all things that he sees and hears while the latter never admits anything except after a most searching scrutiny. He imagines his intelligence to be a sieve of closely woven mesh through which nothing but the finest can pass. #Quote by R.K. Narayan
Intelligent Man quotes by Janine Di Giovanni
#23. The pope is an intelligent man and realizes that time marches on. He says the Church has a long way to go in developing a real strategy that integrates women - but clearly he is baffled as to how to do it. #Quote by Janine Di Giovanni
Intelligent Man quotes by Neal Stephenson
#24. You should be a billionaire, Randy.
Thank god you're not."
"Why do you say that?"
"Oh, because then you'd be a highly intelligent man who never has to make difficult choices - who never has to exert his mind. It is a state much worse than being a moron. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Intelligent Man quotes by H.L. Mencken
#25. The intelligent man, when he pays taxes, certainly does not believe that he is making a prudent and productive investment of his money; on the contrary, he feels that he is being mulcted in an excessive amount for services that, in the main, are useless to him, and that, in substantial part, are downright inimical to him. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Intelligent Man quotes by Edward Abbey
#26. To the intelligent man or woman, life appears infinitely mysterious. But the stupid have an answer for every question. #Quote by Edward Abbey
Intelligent Man quotes by Fereidoon Yazdi
#27. I don't know if I am an intelligent man or not, but I know one thing for sure; if my portion of intelligence was a bit larger, my personality would certainly collapse under its weight! #Quote by Fereidoon Yazdi
Intelligent Man quotes by Baron De Montesquieu
#28. A really intelligent man feels what other men only know. #Quote by Baron De Montesquieu
Intelligent Man quotes by Edmondo De Amicis
#29. Today I had a lively discussion with a merchant in Fez with a view to finding out what the Moors think of European civilization.... He was a fine man, about forty years old, with an honest and serious face, who had made business visits to the most important cities in Western Europe and had lived for a long time in Tangier, where he learnt Spanish....
I asked him therefore what kind of impression the large cities of Europe had made on him....
He looked hard at me and answered coldly:
"Large streets, fine shops, beautiful palaces, good workshops, everything clean." He gave the impression that with these words, he had mentioned everything in our countries that was worthy of praise.
"Have you not found anything else in Europe that is beautiful and good?" I asked.

He looked at me questioningly. "Is it possible," I went on, "that an intelligent man like you, who has visited several countries so marvelously superior to your own can speak about them without astonishment, or at least without the emotion of a country boy who has seen the pasha's palace? What can you possibly admire in the world? What sort of people are you? Who can possibly understand you?"

"Perdone Usted", he answered coldly, "it is for me to say that I cannot understand you. I have told you all the things which I consider to be better in Europe. What more can I say? Have I to say something that I do not believe to be true? I repeat that your streets are larger than ours, yo #Quote by Edmondo De Amicis
Intelligent Man quotes by Plato
#30. No intelligent man will ever be so bold as to put into language those things which his reason has contemplated. #Quote by Plato
Intelligent Man quotes by Edward Bernays
#31. Propaganda will never die out. Intelligent men must realize that propaganda is the modern instrument by which they can fight for productive ends and help to bring order out of chaos. #Quote by Edward Bernays
Intelligent Man quotes by H.G. Wells
#32. It is impossible now to estimate how much of the intellectual and physical energy of the world was wasted in military preparation and equipment, but it was an enormous proportion. Great Britain spent upon army and navy money and capacity, that directed into the channels of physical culture and education would have made the British the aristocracy of the world. Her rulers could have kept the whole population learning and exercising up to the age of eighteen and made a broad-chested and intelligent man of every Bert Smallways in the islands, had they given the resources they spent in war material to the making of men. Instead of which they waggled flags at him until he was fourteen, incited him to cheer, and then turned him out of school to begin that career of private enterprise we have compactly recorded. France achieved similar imbecilities; Germany was, if possible worse; Russia under the waste and stresses of militarism festered towards bankruptcy and decay. All Europe was producing big guns and countless swarms of little Smallways. #Quote by H.G. Wells
Intelligent Man quotes by Tommy Bond
#33. I noticed that this defense attorney is a very, very intelligent man, and he's very cool and he's very knowledgeable, and I think that personally I'd like to have an attorney like him. #Quote by Tommy Bond
Intelligent Man quotes by Michael Lewis
#34. The simplest thing cannot be made clear to the most intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he knows already, without a shadow of doubt, what is laid before him. - Leo Tolstoy, 1897 #Quote by Michael Lewis
Intelligent Man quotes by Fyodor Dostoevsky
#35. Granted I am a babbler, a harmless vexatious babbler, like all of us. But what is to be done if the direct and sole vocation of every intelligent man is babble, that is, the intentional pouring of water through a sieve? #Quote by Fyodor Dostoevsky
Intelligent Man quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#36. As long as the Almighty permitted intelligent men, created in his image and likeness, to fight in public and kill each other while the world looks on approvingly, it's not for me to deprive the chickens of the same privilege. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Intelligent Man quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#37. Men have called me mad; but the question is not settled whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence -- whether much that is glorious -- whether all that is profound -- does not spring from disease of thought -- from moods of mind exalted at the expense of the general intellect. They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who only dream by night. In their gray visions they obtain glimpses of eternity, and thrill, in waking, to find that they have been upon the verge of the great secret. In snatches, they learn something of the wisdom which is of good, and more of the mere knowledge which is of evil. They penetrate, however rudderless or compassless, into the vast ocean of the 'light ineffable'. #Quote by Edgar Allan Poe
Intelligent Man quotes by Derek R. Audette
#38. The curse of the intelligent man is that he will always find himself surrounded by the ignorant. The measure of the intelligent man is determined by his tolerance toward them. #Quote by Derek R. Audette
Intelligent Man quotes by John Podhoretz
#39. Newt Gingrich is a very intelligent man, if he says so himself. #Quote by John Podhoretz
Intelligent Man quotes by Adolf Hitler
#40. A highly intelligent man should take a primitive woman. Imagine if on top of everything else, I had a woman who interfered with my work. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Intelligent Man quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#41. Do you really admire me very much.?" he asked the little prince.
"What does "admire" mean.?"
"To admire means that you consider me the handsomest, the best dressed, the richest and the most intelligent man on this planet."
"But you are all alone on your planet.!"
"Do me this kindness. Admire me all the same.!"
"I admire you," said the little prince with a slight shrug of his shoulders, "but why should that mean so much to you.?"
And the little prince went away.
"Grown- ups are really very odd," he said to himself, as he continued on his journey. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Intelligent Man quotes by Storm Jameson
#42. An intelligent man or woman willing to make a career of reviewing fiction is hard to come by ... And the temporaries do the work cheaply. Moreover, continuity may be got at the expense of intellectual arthritis; a reviewer who has been at his grisly task for half a lifetime may stiffen into prejudices of every sort, and become too anchylosed to do better than turn his back to a new wave when it rushes down on him. #Quote by Storm Jameson
Intelligent Man quotes by Henrik Ibsen
#43. The majority is never right. Never, I tell you! That's one of these lies in society that no free and intelligent man can help rebelling against. Who are the people that make up the biggest proportion of the population
the intelligent ones or the fools? #Quote by Henrik Ibsen
Intelligent Man quotes by Fyodor Dostoevsky
#44. And now I am eking out my days in my corner, taunting myself with the bitter and entirely useless consolations that an intelligent man cannot seriously become anything; that only a fool can become something. Yes, sir, an intelligent nineteenth-century man must be, is morally bound to be, an essentially characterless creature; and a man of character, a man of action - an essentially limited creature. This is my conviction at the age of forty. I am forty now, and forty years - why, it is all of a lifetime, it is the deepest of old age. Living past forty is indecent, vulgar, immoral! #Quote by Fyodor Dostoevsky
Intelligent Man quotes by Josephine Baker
#45. I think they must mix blood, otherwise the human race is bound to degenerate. Mixing blood is marvelous. It makes strong and intelligent men. It takes away tired spirits. #Quote by Josephine Baker
Intelligent Man quotes by Bertrand Russell
#46. The fundamental cause of the trouble is that in the modern world the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubt. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Intelligent Man quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#47. The good man can be proud of his virtue because it is his. But of what is the intelligent man proud? #Quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Intelligent Man quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#48. If being stupid is the only way for an intelligent man to be happy, then let us hope that unhappiness be his choice! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Intelligent Man quotes by Julie James
#49. Twitter Terrorist, billionaire heir, ex-con, computer geek, bad boy - none of those terms came close to describing Kyle Rhodes. He was, simply, a good person, and a confident, intelligent man to boot, and she found that combination absolutely irresistible. #Quote by Julie James
Intelligent Man quotes by Jim Crace
#50. My dad didn't have a formal education, but he had a wonderful vocabulary. So in 'Harvest,' I wanted my main character to be an innately intelligent man who would have the vocabulary to say whatever he wanted in the same way as lots of working-class people can. #Quote by Jim Crace
Intelligent Man quotes by Christine Feehan
#51. It was at home, when she was alone with herself, the way she'd been her entire life, that she was lost. She had no purpose. No focus. No center to balance her. Now, this man, Vittorio Ferraro, an amazing, sensual, intelligent man offered those things to her. #Quote by Christine Feehan
Intelligent Man quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#52. The second best thing about space travel is that the distances involved make war very difficult, usually impractical, and almost always unnecessary. This is probably a loss for most people, since war is our race's most popular diversion, one which gives purpose and color to dull and stupid lives. But it is a great boon to the intelligent man who fights only when he must-never for sport. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Intelligent Man quotes by John Abbott
#53. 'How do you know so much about everything?' was asked of a very wise and intelligent man; and the answer was 'By never being afraid or ashamed to ask questions as to anything of which I was ignorant.' #Quote by John Abbott
Intelligent Man quotes by Richard Feynman
#54. The trouble with playing a trick on a highly intelligent man like Mr. Teller is that the time it takes him to figure out from the moment that he sees there is something wrong till he understands exactly what happened is too damn small to give you any pleasure! #Quote by Richard Feynman
Intelligent Man quotes by Lemony Snicket
#55. If you were smart," Genghis said, "you would have borrowed the silverware of one of your friends."
"We never thought of that," Klaus said. When one is forced to tell atrocious lies, one often feels a guilty flutter in one's stomach, and Klaus felt such a flutter now. "You certainly are an intelligent man."
"Not only am I intelligent," Genghis agreed, "but I'm also very smart. #Quote by Lemony Snicket
Intelligent Man quotes by B.E. Crittenden
#56. Like all philosophers, I am an observer of the human condition. I have found through my observations that an intelligent man and a humble man are rarely the same person.
Jao-long from my book Aztec Legend Lord of the Jaguars. #Quote by B.E. Crittenden
Intelligent Man quotes by Honore De Balzac
#57. Fools gain greater advantages through their weakness than intelligent men through their strength. We watch a great man struggling against fate and we do not lift a finger to help him. But we patronize a grocer who is headed for bankruptcy. #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Intelligent Man quotes by Bertrand Russell
#58. The fact is you cannot be intelligent merely by choosing your opinions. The intelligent man is not the man who holds such-and-such views but the man who has sound reasons for what he believes and yet does not believe it dogmatically. And opinions held for sound reasons have less emotional unity than the opinions of dogmatists because reason is non-party, favouring now one side and now another. That is what people find so unpleasant about it. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Intelligent Man quotes by Roberta Pearce
#59. Speaking of which, about assuming you had a condom - I just meant that you, with your experience, would be prepared for responsible sex, even if it were on the fly. An intelligent man is prepared for spontaneity. #Quote by Roberta Pearce
Intelligent Man quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#60. No intelligent man has any respect for an unjust law. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Intelligent Man quotes by William Shakespeare
#61. The essence of Macbeth is seeing a great and intelligent man succumb to the forces of darkness. What gives the tragedy #Quote by William Shakespeare
Intelligent Man quotes by Marion Barry
#62. I am a great mayor; I am an upstanding Christian man; I am an intelligent man; I am a deeply educated man; I am a humble man. #Quote by Marion Barry
Intelligent Man quotes by Pablo Escobar
#63. There are two hundred million idiots, manipulated by a million intelligent men. #Quote by Pablo Escobar
Intelligent Man quotes by Philo Of Alexandria
#64. The intelligent man should see to it that his friends are immortal, his enemies mortal. #Quote by Philo Of Alexandria
Intelligent Man quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
#65. The ideal girl ... would be kind. That was because she would also be extremely intelligent, and, being extremely intelligent, would have need of kindness to enable her to bear with a not very intelligent man like himself. #Quote by P.G. Wodehouse
Intelligent Man quotes by Max Horkheimer
#66. An intelligent man is not one who can merely reason correctly, but one whose mind is open to perceiving objective contents, who is able to receive the impact of their essential structures and to render it in human language; this holds also for the nature of thinking as such, and for its truth content. The neutralization of reason that deprives it of any relation to objective content and of its power of judging the latter, and that degrades it to an executive agency concerned with the how rather than with the what, transforms it to an ever-increasing extent into a mere dull apparatus for registering facts. #Quote by Max Horkheimer
Intelligent Man quotes by Nicolas Gomez Davila
#67. In the intelligent man faith is the only remedy for anguish.
The fool is cured by "reason," "progress," alcohol, work. #Quote by Nicolas Gomez Davila
Intelligent Man quotes by Nicolas Sarkozy
#68. Francois Hollande is an intelligent man. I do not have a problem with him. The only thing is, he has never held office at the state level. Honestly, can you imagine Francois Hollande as president of France? Imagine it! #Quote by Nicolas Sarkozy
Intelligent Man quotes by Joey W. Hill
#69. You're not a Dom, not a Master, Josh," she said. "You've never even been close. You're a submissive. A gorgeous, incredibly sensual submissive that any Mistress in her right mind would cherish forever. You were doing as your Mistress told you to do, and she used you cruelly. I won't let you blame yourself for anything, Josh, except maybe for not recognizing it sooner, because you are an intelligent man. Your inly crime is in denying your own worth, because she made you doubt yours. A Mistress doesn't do that, Josh. #Quote by Joey W. Hill
Intelligent Man quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#70. Oh, gentlemen, perhaps I really regard myself as an intelligent man only because throughout my entire life I've never been able to start or finish anything. Granted, granted I'm a babbler, a harmless, irksome babbler, as we all are. But what's to be done if the sole and express purpose of every intelligent man is babble
that is, a deliberate pouring from empty into void. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Intelligent Man quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#71. It was not only that I could not become spiteful, I did not know how to become anything; neither spiteful nor kind, neither a rascal nor an honest man, neither a hero nor an insect. Now, I am living out my life in my corner, taunting myself with the spiteful and useless consolation that an intelligent man cannot become anything seriously, and it is only the fool who becomes anything. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Intelligent Man quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#72. A healthy man watched what he ate. An intelligent man watched what he watched. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Intelligent Man quotes by April Glaspie
#73. President Bush is an intelligent man. He is not going to declare an economic war against Iraq . [ ... ] I admire your extraordinary efforts to rebuild your country. I know you need funds. We understand that, and our opinion is that you should have the opportunity to rebuild your country. But we have no opinion on Arab-Arab conflicts like your border disagreement with Kuwait . #Quote by April Glaspie
Intelligent Man quotes by W. H. Auden
#74. Routine, in an intelligent man, is a sign of ambition. #Quote by W. H. Auden
Intelligent Man quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#75. I am glad that at such a moment my young man turned out to be not so reasonable; the time will come for an intelligent man to be reasonable, but if at such an exceptional moment there is no love to be found in a young man's heart, then when will it come? #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Intelligent Man quotes by Ednita Nazario
#76. The process is intense and the producers, who are intelligent men, are bringing in new people for a fresh look at a complicated project that has been in the making for 10 years. #Quote by Ednita Nazario
Intelligent Man quotes by Jalaluddin Rumi
#77. An intelligent man, or woman, is a lamp that guides itself. Let

him or her lead. Trust the knowing they browse. A half-intelligent person is one who lets

the intelligent person be guide. He holds on like the blind to the coat of a helper. Through

another, he acts and sees and learns. There is a third kind with no intellect at all, who

takes no advice, strolls out into the wilderness, runs a little to one side, stops, limps

through the night with no candle, no stub of a candle, no notion what to ask for.

The first has perfect intellect. The second knows enough to surrender to the first. One

breathes with Jesus. The other dies, so Jesus can breathe through him. The third

flops and flounders in all directions, with no direction, lurches and leaps, trying

everything, with no way or way out. #Quote by Jalaluddin Rumi
Intelligent Man quotes by David Thompson
#78. Every intelligent man saw the poverty that would follow the destruction of the beaver, but there were no chiefs to control it; all was perfect liberty and equality. #Quote by David Thompson
Intelligent Man quotes by V.S. Naipaul
#79. When we land at a place like London Airport we are concerned only not to appear foolish. It is more beautiful and more complex than anything we could have dreamed of, but we are concerned only to let people see that we can manage and we are not overawed. We might even pretend that we had expected better. That is the nature of our stupidity and incompetence. And that was how I spent my time at the university in England, not being overawed, always being slightly disappointed, understanding nothing, accepting everything, getting nothing. I saw and understood so little that even at the end of my time at the university I could distinguish buildings only by their size, and I was hardly aware of the passing of the seasons. And yet I was an intelligent man and could cram for examinations. #Quote by V.S. Naipaul
Intelligent Man quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#80. The intelligent man finds almost everything ridiculous, the sensible man hardly anything. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Intelligent Man quotes by B.F. Skinner
#81. The juvenile delinquent does not feel his disturbed personality. The intelligent man does not feel his intelligence or the introvert his introversion. #Quote by B.F. Skinner
Intelligent Man quotes by Marcel Proust
#82. People who are not in love fail to understand how an intelligent man can suffer because of a very ordinary woman. This is like being surprised that anyone should be stricken with cholera because of a creature so insignificant as the common bacillus. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Intelligent Man quotes by Gautama Buddha
#83. Careful amidst the careless, amongst the sleeping wide-awake, the intelligent man leaves them all behind, like a race-horse does a mere hack. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Intelligent Man quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#84. The General belonged to the learned type of military men who believed that liberal and humane views can be reconciled with their profession. But being by nature a kind and intelligent man, he soon felt the impossibility of such a reconciliation. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Intelligent Man quotes by Honore De Balzac
#85. When an intelligent man reaches the point of inviting self-explanation and offers surrendering the key to his heart, he is assuredly riding a drunken horse. #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Intelligent Man quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#86. One of the characters in our story, Gavril Ardalionovitch Ivolgin, belonged to the other category; he belonged to the category of "much cleverer" people; though head to toe he was infected with the desire to be original. But this class of person, as we have observed above, is far less happy than the first. The difficulty is that the intelligent "ordinary" man, even if he does imagine himself at times (and perhaps all his life) a person of genius and originality, nevertheless retains within his heart a little worm of doubt, which sometimes leads the intelligent man in the end to absolute despair. If he does yield in this belief, he is still completely poisoned with inward-driven vanity. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Intelligent Man quotes by Brendan Fraser
#87. Ian McKellen is brilliant with research. I paid really close attention to the sources he goes to. He's a very, very intelligent man. #Quote by Brendan Fraser
Intelligent Man quotes by Laozi
#88. For all things difficult to acquire, the intelligent man works with perseverance. #Quote by Laozi
Intelligent Man quotes by Albert Camus
#89. The truth is that every intelligent man, as you know, dreams of being a gangster and of ruling over society by force alone. As it is not so easy as the detective novels might lead one to believe, one generally relies on politics and joins the cruelest party.What does it matter, after all, if by humiliating one's mind one succeeds in dominating every one? I discovered in myself sweet dreams of oppression. #Quote by Albert Camus
Intelligent Man quotes by Robert G. Ingersoll
#90. Is there an intelligent man or woman now in the world who believes in the Garden of Eden story? If you find any man who believes it, strike his forehead and you will hear an echo. Something is for rent. #Quote by Robert G. Ingersoll
Intelligent Man quotes by Rumi
#91. Today I'm out wandering, turning my skull
into a cup for others to drink wine from.
In this town somewhere there sits a calm, intelligent man,
who doesn't know what he's about to do! #Quote by Rumi
Intelligent Man quotes by Anton Chekhov
#92. In twenty years I've found only one intelligent man in the whole town, and he's mad. #Quote by Anton Chekhov
Intelligent Man quotes by Criss Jami
#93. The vanity of intelligence is that the intelligent man is often more committed to 'one-upping' his opponent than being truthful. When the idea of intelligence, rather than intelligence itself, becomes a staple, there is no wisdom in it. #Quote by Criss Jami
Intelligent Man quotes by Wilkie Collins
#94. But I am a just man, even to my enemy - and I will acknowledge, beforehand, that they are cleverer brains than I thought them. #Quote by Wilkie Collins
Intelligent Man quotes by Laurence Fishburne
#95. I think of myself as being a relatively intelligent man who is open to a lot of different things and I think that questioning our purpose in life and the meaning of existence is something that we all go through at some point. #Quote by Laurence Fishburne
Intelligent Man quotes by Alex Ferguson
#96. They say he's an intelligent man, right? Speaks five languages! I've got a 15-year-old boy from the Ivory Coast who speaks five languages! #Quote by Alex Ferguson
Intelligent Man quotes by Nicolas Gomez Davila
#97. The intelligent man quickly reaches reactionary conclusions.
Today, however, the universal consensus of fools turns him into a coward.
When they interrogate him in public, he denies being a Galilean. #Quote by Nicolas Gomez Davila
Intelligent Man quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#98. An intelligent man is sometimes forced to be drunk to spend time with his fools. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Intelligent Man quotes by Nikodimos
#99. Those who are inconstant and uninstructed should not argue with intelligent men. An intelligent man is one who conforms to God and mostly keeps silent; when he speaks he says very little, and only what is necessary and acceptable to God. #Quote by Nikodimos
Intelligent Man quotes by Sylvia Plath
#100. Finally I decided that if it was so difficult to find a redblooded intelligent man who was still pure by the time he was twenty-one I might as well forget about staying pure myself and marry somebody who wasn't pure either. Then when he started to make my life miserable I could make his miserable as well. #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Intelligent Man quotes by Randall Jarrell
#101. An intelligent man said that the world felt Napoleon as a weight, and that when he died it would give a great oof of relief. This is just as true of Byron, or of such Byrons of their days as Kipling and Hemingway: after a generation or two the world is tired of being their pedestal, shakes them of with an oof, and then hoisting onto its back a new world-figure feels the penetrating satisfaction of having made a mistake all its own. #Quote by Randall Jarrell
Intelligent Man quotes by Ilyas Kassam
#102. An intelligent man is one who acknowledges his intelligence as that of those who surround him. #Quote by Ilyas Kassam
Intelligent Man quotes by Giacomo Casanova
#103. I often had no scruples about deceiving nitwits and scoundrels and fools when I found it necessary ... We avenge intelligence when we deceive a fool, and ... deceiving a fool is an exploit worthy of an intelligent man. What has infused my very blood with an unconquerable hatred of the whole tribe of fools from the day of my birth is that I become a fool myself when I am in their company. #Quote by Giacomo Casanova
Intelligent Man quotes by Stephanie Laurens
#104. What woman wouldn't want to be pursued in a flattering, non-physically threatening way by a gorgeous, fascinating, intelligent man? Being wanted, desired, being the focus of a man's aspirations, his goal, his grail - the one companion he must have to live contentedly - is one of the most universal and fundamental of female wishes. #Quote by Stephanie Laurens
Intelligent Man quotes by Nanavira Thera
#105. A few years ago a practising Harley Street psychiatrist, who was dabbling in Buddhism, came to see me. I opened the conversation by saying 'At some time in his life, every intelligent man questions himself about the purpose of his existence.' Immediately, and with the most manifest disapproval, the psychiatrist replied 'Anybody who thinks such thoughts is mentally diseased.' Thus with a single gesture, he swept half-a-dozen major philosophers (some of whom have held chairs in universities - which guarantees their respectability if not their philosophy) into the lunatic asylum - the criminal lunatic asylum, to judge from his tone. I have never seen a man in such a funk. #Quote by Nanavira Thera
Intelligent Man quotes by Henrik Ibsen
#106. The majority never has right on its side. Never, I say! That is one of these social lies against which an independent, intelligent man must wage war. Who is it that constitute the majority of the population in a country? Is it the clever folk, or the stupid? I don't imagine you will dispute the fact that at present the stupid people are in an absolutely overwhelming majority all the world over. But, good Lord! - you can never pretend that it is right that the stupid folk should govern the clever ones I (Uproar and cries.) Oh, yes - you can shout me down, I know! But you cannot answer me. The majority has might on its side - unfortunately; but right it has not. I am in the right - I and a few other scattered individuals. The minority is always in the right. (Renewed uproar.) #Quote by Henrik Ibsen
Intelligent Man quotes by Timothy Noah
#107. Obama is an intelligent man whose life and work experience sensitize him to class distinctions. #Quote by Timothy Noah
Intelligent Man quotes by Howard Metzenbaum
#108. After listening to you for slightly more than one hour, I can tell that you are a strong and intelligent man and that you want peace #Quote by Howard Metzenbaum
Intelligent Man quotes by Rene Descartes
#109. It cannot be denied that he has had many exceptional ideas, and that he is a highly intelligent man. For my part, however, I have always been taught to take a broad overview of things, in order to be able to deduce from them general rules, which might be applicable elsewhere. #Quote by Rene Descartes
Intelligent Man quotes by Protagoras
#110. No intelligent man believes that anybody ever willingly errs or willingly does base and evil deeds; they are well aware that all who do base and evil things do them unwillingly. #Quote by Protagoras
Intelligent Man quotes by Wilkie Collins
#111. It is truly wonderful," he said, "how easily Society can console itself for the worst of its shortcomings with a little bit of clap-trap. The machinery it has set up for the detection of crime is miserably ineffective - and yet only invent a moral epigram, saying that it works well, and you blind everybody to its blunders from that moment. Crimes cause their own detection, do they? And murder will out (another moral epigram), will it? Ask Coroners who sit at inquests in large towns if that is true, Lady Glyde. Ask secretaries of life-assurance companies if that is true, Miss Halcombe. Read your own public journals. In the few cases that get into the newspapers, are there not instances of slain bodies found, and no murderers ever discovered? Multiply the cases that are reported by the cases that are not reported, and the bodies that are found by the bodies that are not found, and what conclusion do you come to? This. That there are foolish criminals who are discovered, and wise criminals who escape. The hiding of a crime, or the detection of a crime, what is it? A trial of skill between the police on one side, and the individual on the other. When the criminal is a brutal, ignorant fool, the police in nine cases out of ten win. When the criminal is a resolute, educated, highly-intelligent man, the police in nine cases out of ten lose. If the police win, you generally hear all about it. If the police lose, you generally hear nothing. And on this tottering foundation you build u #Quote by Wilkie Collins
Intelligent Man quotes by Ayn Rand
#112. Like any overt school of mysticism, a movement seeking to achieve a vicious goal has to invoke the higher mysteries of an incomprehensible authority. An unread and unreadable book serves this purpose. It does not count on men's intelligence, but on their weaknesses, pretensions and fears. It is not a tool of enlightenment, but of intellectual intimidation. It is not aimed at the reader's understanding, but at his inferiority complex.
An intelligent man will reject such a book with contemptuous indignation, refusing to waste his time on untangling what he perceives to be gibberish - which is part of the book's technique: the man able to refute its arguments will not (unless he has the endurance of an elephant and the patience of a martyr). A young man of average intelligence - particularly a student of philosophy or of political science - under a barrage of authoritative pronouncements acclaiming the book as "scholarly," "significant," "profound," will take the blame for his failure to understand. More often than not, he will assume that the book's theory has been scientifically proved and that he alone is unable to grasp it; anxious, above all, to hide his inability, he will profess agreement, and the less his understanding, the louder his agreement - while the rest of the class are going through the same mental process. Most of them will accept the book's doctrine, reluctantly and uneasily, and lose their intellectual integrity, condemning themselves to a chronic fog of #Quote by Ayn Rand

#113. But an intelligent man like you would know that to live in an unrealistic hope is a very foolish way to spend a life. - Lena Gray #Quote by Maeve Binchy
Intelligent Man quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#114. The intelligent man finds everything laughable, the sensible man hardly anything. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Intelligent Man quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#115. An intelligent man wants to ultimately spend his life with a woman with whom he knows he shares complimentary energies with. He wants to feel like him and his woman are solid, because nothing can throw them off base, because the flow of their connection is just so grounded, that nothing can come in between that - not reason, not logic, not lies, not insecurities, not doubts and not fears. Men don't talk about this, but this is what intelligent men innately crave, and they don't want anything less. They want something solid. They don't want to be with women who want to be with guys who don't respect them or who try to make them jealous all the time; they don't want to be with women who need to feel like there's a game that's being played. So, contrary to popular belief, men do want something real, even more real than what many women dream of! And it's not about other people and what they think is real; it's about just him and her and what they know is real. But you can never fake making a man believe this is the kind of connection that you have with him, because you can't fake energies! At the end of the day, if you're that woman, then you're that woman and he's that man for you. Your connection through your energies will just flow through everything - walls, distance, time, fears - you'll be solid. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Intelligent Man quotes by J.D. Salinger
#116. I can't see why anybody - unless he was a child, or an angel, or a lucky simpleton like the pilgrim - would even want to say a prayer to a Jesus who was the least bit different from the way he looks and sounds in the New Testament. My God! He's only the most intelligent man in the Bible, that's all! Who isn't he head and shoulders over? Who? Both Testaments are full of pundits, prophets, disciples, favorite sons, Solomons, Isaiahs, Davids, Pauls - but, my God, who besides Jesus really knew which end was up? Nobody. Not Moses. Don't tell me Moses. He was a nice man, and he kept in beautiful touch with his God, and all that - but that's exactly the point. He had to keep in touch. Jesus realized there is no separation from God. #Quote by J.D. Salinger

Intelligent Man quotes by Roseanna M. White
#119. [...] being a gentleman by birth certainly did not make one worthy of the name. Indeed, far too often it seemed to make one the opposite, by promising a man insulation from the consequences of sin. #Quote by Roseanna M. White
Intelligent Man quotes by Lex Luger
#120. I thought surrendering was a weakness; instead it's the strongest thing a man or a woman can ever do, to acknowledge our Creator who's in control of all things. #Quote by Lex Luger
Intelligent Man quotes by Bob Mould
#121. I think also there was a lot of coming to terms with where I am in life, where I fit in as a gay man in America, and getting more comfortable with who I am. #Quote by Bob Mould
Intelligent Man quotes by Andrew Carnegie
#122. The secret of success lies not in doing your own work, but in recognizing the right man to do it. #Quote by Andrew Carnegie
Intelligent Man quotes by George Foreman
#123. When I was a boxer, I wanted to be champion of the world, not the richest man in the world. #Quote by George Foreman
Intelligent Man quotes by Karl Marx
#124. Nature is man's inorganic body
that is to say, nature insofar as it is not the human body. Man lives from nature
i.e., nature is his body
and he must maintain a continuing dialogue with it is he is not to die. To say that man's physical and mental life is linked to nature simply means that nature is linked to itself, for man is a part of nature. #Quote by Karl Marx
Intelligent Man quotes by Caroll Spinney
#125. I was asked to be on 'The Colbert Report' last year as Big Bird and Oscar. But when we got there, we discovered they wanted both characters on at the same time. Stephen Colbert didn't know one man plays them both. We called Joey Mazzarino, our head writer, who's a very good puppeteer as well. He agreed to zip over and do Oscar. #Quote by Caroll Spinney
Intelligent Man quotes by D.H. Lawrence
#126. Every new stroke of civilization has cost the lives of countless brave men, who have fallen defeated by the dragon, in their efforts to win the apples of the Hesperides, or the fleece of gold. Fallen in their efforts to overcome the old, half sordid savagery of the lower stages of creation, and win the next stage. #Quote by D.H. Lawrence
Intelligent Man quotes by Ethan Canin
#127. An infant, in his first sleepiness, must let go of the world; a man must learn to die. What comes between are the grains of sand. Ambition. Loss. Envy. Desire. Hatred. Love. Tenderness. Joy. Shame. Loneliness. Ecstasy. Ache. Surrender. #Quote by Ethan Canin
Intelligent Man quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#128. Let us rejoice then, that in "the general assembly and church of the firstborn" above, there shall by no means be admitted a single unrenewed soul. Sinners cannot live in heaven. They would be out of their element. Sooner could a fish live upon a tree than the wicked in Paradise. Heaven would be an intolerable hell to an impenitent man, even if he could be allowed to enter; but such a privilege shall never be granted to the man who perseveres in his iniquities. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Intelligent Man quotes by Israel Shenker
#129. In the Bible, fate was often presented as the handmaiden of morality: sin was succeeded by misfortune, righteousness by prosperity, with reward and punishment instrumental in persuading man to obey divine commandments. #Quote by Israel Shenker
Intelligent Man quotes by Andrei Tarkovsky
#130. Art must must carry man's craving for the ideal, must be an expression of his reaching out towards it; that art must give man hope and faith. And the more hopeless the world in the artist's version, the more clearly perhaps must we see the ideal that stands in opposition - otherwise life becomes impossible! Art symbolises the meaning of our existence. #Quote by Andrei Tarkovsky
Intelligent Man quotes by M.C. Scott
#131. The camp offices stood in the centre, adjoining the shrine to Jupiter that held the legion's Eagle. In the camps of the Vth Macedonica and the VIth Ferrata, these buildings were of grey stone, dressed by Gaulish masons to such smoothness that a man could run his hand down them and not feel the joins.
The legions' respective signs of the bull and the eagle had been carved thereon with such pride and perfection that men copied them on their shields and carved them on the bedheads in the barracks.
At Raphana, the camp office of the XIIth Fulminata and IVth Scythians before which we dismounted was built of the local baked mud, and some drunkard with a poor eye for detail had etched
the Scythians' sign of the goat and the Fulminata's crossed thunderbolts together, so that it seemed as if the goat were thunderstruck, or else that lightning grew from its anus. Both applied equally; each was unthinkable in a legion which had any pride in itself. #Quote by M.C. Scott
Intelligent Man quotes by Miles Watson
#132. In the years that I could not see him, I came to know my father through the medium of photography. My perceptions of him were forged on black-and-white squares that stole an instant out of history and immortalized it between the pages of a family album. When I summoned up the image of the man, it came to me frozen, black-bordered, flat. He stood pale above the creases of his uniform, framed in the foamy wake of some ship, drops of sunlight caught in the buttons on his jacket. He winked at me from the liberty ports of countless exotic places. In an atrocious hand he scrawled stilted, affectionate words to the stranger that bore his name and his features, telling of adventures far away, misbehavings under suns hotter than that which shone over the Greater German Reich. #Quote by Miles Watson
Intelligent Man quotes by Dr. J. Otis Yoder
#133. Any man's measure is determined by what he will do when he is faced with his own deep need. Not how high he may reach but how low he may kneel. #Quote by Dr. J. Otis Yoder
Intelligent Man quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#134. Indeed, we need not look back half a century to times which many now living remember well, and see the wonderful advances in the sciences and arts which have been made within that period. Some of these have rendered the elements themselves subservient to the purposes of man, have harnessed them to the yoke of his labors and effected the great blessings of moderating his own, of accomplishing what was beyond his feeble force, and extending the comforts of life to a much enlarged circle, to those who had before known its necessaries only. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Intelligent Man quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#135. Science in England, in America, is jealous of theory, hates the name of love and moral purpose. There's revenge for this humanity.What manner of man does science make? The boy is not attracted. He says, I do not wish to be such a kind of man as my professor is. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Intelligent Man quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#136. The plea of good intentions is not one that can be allowed to have much weight in passing historical judgment upon a man whose wrong-headedness and distorted way of looking at things produced, or helped to produce, such incalculable evil; there is a wide political applicability in the remark attributed to a famous Texan, to the effect that he might, in the end, pardon a man who shot him on purpose, but that he would surely never forgive one who did so accidentally. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Intelligent Man quotes by Igor Stravinsky
#137. The phenomenon of music is given to us with the sole purpose of establishing an order in things, including, and particularly, the co-ordination between man [sic] and time."

Intelligent Man quotes by William Dunbar
#138. Lament for the Makaris (Makers)

I who enjoyed good health and gladness
am overwhelmed now by life's terrible sickness
and enfeebled with infirmity ...
how the fear of Death dismays me!

our presence here is mere vainglory;
the false world is but transitory;
the flesh is frail; the Fiend runs free ...
how the fear of Death dismays me!

the state of man is changeable:
now sound, now sick, now blithe, now dull,
now manic, now devoid of glee ...
how the fear of Death dismays me!

no state on earth stands here securely;
as the wild wind shakes the willow tree,
so wavers this world's vanity ...
how the fear of Death dismays me!

Death leads the knights into the field
(unarmored under helm and shield)
sole Victor of each red mêlée ...
how the fear of Death dismays me!

that strange, despotic Beast
tears from its mother's breast
the babe, full of benignity ...
how the fear of Death dismays me!

He takes the champion of the hour,
the captain of the highest tower,
the beautiful damsel in her tower ...
how the fear of Death dismays me!

He spares no lord for his elegance,
nor clerk for his intelligence;
His dreadful stroke no man can flee ...
how the fear of Death dismays me!

artist, magician, scientist,
orator, debater, theologist,

Intelligent Man quotes by Ray Bradbury
#139. I hate being clever, thought the captain, when you don't really feel clever and don't want to be clever. To sneak around and
make plans and feel big about making them. I hate this feeling of thinking I'm doing right when I'm not really certain I am. Who
are we, anyway? The majority? Is that the answer? The majority is always holy, is it not? Always, always; just never wrong for
one little insignificant tiny moment, is it? Never ever wrong in ten million years? He thought: What is this majority and who are in
it? And what do they think and how did they get that way and will they ever change and how the devil did I get caught in this
rotten majority? I don't feel comfortable. Is it claustrophobia, fear of crowds, or common sense? Can one man be right, while all
the world thinks they are right? Let's not think about it. Let's crawl around and act exciting and pull the trigger. There, and there! #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Intelligent Man quotes by Agnes Repplier
#140. Personally, I do not believe that it is the duty of any man or woman to write a novel. In nine cases out of ten, there would be greater merit in leaving it unwritten. #Quote by Agnes Repplier

Intelligent Man quotes by James Dashner
#142. Okay, listen to me," the old man said, his voice muffled behind his own swath of fabric. "We need to set some things straight before we get up there. We can't let our emotions rule everything. No matter what we see, our number one priority has to be saving as many people as possible. #Quote by James Dashner
Intelligent Man quotes by Marcus Garvey
#143. RELIGION is one's opinion and belief in some ethical truth. To be a Christian is to have the religion of Christ, and so to be a believer of Mohammed is to be a Mohammedan but there are so many religions that every man seems to be a religion unto himself. No two persons think alike, even if they outwardly profess the same faith, so we have as many religions in Christianity as we have believers. #Quote by Marcus Garvey
Intelligent Man quotes by Marisha Pessl
#144. I pretended not to notice, but Dad looked sort of deflated there on the edge of my bed. A lost, even humbled look was wandering around his face (quite surprised to be there). Seeing him like this, so un-Dad, made me feel sorry for him - though I didn't let on. His befuddled expression reminded me of those unflattering photographs of presidents The New York Times and other newspapers adored sticking on their front page in order to show the world how the Great Leader looked between the staged waves, the scripted sound-bites, the rehearsed handshakes - not staunch and stately, not even steady, but frail and foolish. And though these candid photographs were amusing, when you actually thought about it, the underlying implication of such a photograph was scary, for they hinted how delicate the balance of our lives, how tenuous our calm little existences, if this was the man in charge. #Quote by Marisha Pessl
Intelligent Man quotes by Zhuangzi

Intelligent Man quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#147. The better part of the man is soon ploughed into the soil for compost. By a seeming fate, commonly called necessity, they are employed, as it says in an old book, laying up treasures which moth and rust will corrupt and thieves break through and steal. It is a fool's life, as they will find when they get to the end of it, if not before. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Intelligent Man quotes by Truman Capote
#148. hundred miles west and one would be out of the "Bible Belt," that gospel-haunted strip of American territory in which a man must, if only for business reasons, take his religion with the straightest of faces, but in Finney County one is still within the Bible Belt borders, and therefore a person's church affiliation is the most important factor influencing his class status. #Quote by Truman Capote
