Genius quotes
Genius
When thou seest an eagle, thou seest a portion of genius; lift up thy head!

- William Blake
The charm, one might say the genius of memory, is that it is choosy, chancy, and temperamental: it rejects the edifying cathedral and indelibly photographs the small boy outside, chewing a hunk of melon in the dust.

- Bowen, Elizabeth

- Lewis, Jerry
Thoroughness characterizes all successful men. Genius is the art of taking infinite pains. All great achievement has been characterized by extreme care, infinite painstaking, even to the minutest detail.

- Hubbard, Elbert
Let us make life one poem--not of dreams or sentiments--but of actions, not done Byronically as proofs of genius, but for our own self-education, alone, in secret, awaiting the crisis which shall call us forth to the battle to do just what other people do, only, perhaps, by an utterly different self-education. That is the life of great spirits, after, perhaps, many many years of seclusion, of silent training in the lower paths of God's vineyard, till their hearts have settled into a still, deep, yet swift current, and those who have been faithful over a few things are made rulers over many things.

- MS. Letter. 1842.
Only an inventor knows how to borrow, and every man is or should be an inventor.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
A man of genius is privileged only as far as he is genius. His dullness is as insupportable as any other dullness.

People of genius do not excel in any profession because they work in it, they work in it because they excel.

Be you in what line of life you may, it will be amongst your misfortunes if you have not time properly to attend to pecuniary [monetary] matters. Want of attention to these matters has impeded the progress of science and of genius itself.

Genius is born--not paid.

- Oscar Wilde
All the means of action - the shapeless masses - the materials - lie everywhere about us. What we need is the celestial fire to change the flint into the transparent crystal, bright and clear. That fire is genius.

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The genius of you Americans is that you never make clear-cut stupid moves, only complicated stupid moves, which leave us to wonder at the possibility that there may be something to them that we are missing.

- Gamel Abdel Nasser
Coffee is good for talent, but genius wants prayer.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Short of genius a rich man cannot even imagine poverty.

- Peguy, Charles
What is genius but the power of expressing a new individuality?

- Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
