750.  At this point I reveal myself in my true colours as a stick-in-the-mud.  I hold a number of beliefs that have been repudiated by the liveliest intellects of our time.  I believe that order is better than chaos.  Creation better than destruction.  I prefer gentleness to violence.  Forgiveness to vendetta.  On the whole I think that knowledge is preferable to ignorance.  And I am sure that human sympathy is more valuable than an ideology.  I believe that in spite of recent triumphs of science men haven’t changed much in the last two thousand years.  And in consequence we must still try to learn from history: history is ourselves ... I believe in courtesy ... And I think we should remember that we are part of a great whole, which for convenience we call nature.  All living things are our brothers and sisters.  Above all, I believe in the God-given genius of certain individuals.  And I value a society that makes their existence possible.  (Belief & Art & Civilisation & Culture & Genius & Human Beings & Nature)  Kenneth Clark, Civilisation: Heroic Materialism 13/13

 

 

98,686.  The Great Man ... is colder, harder, less hesitating, and without fear of ‘opinion’; he lacks the virtues that accompany respect and ‘responsibility’, and altogether that is the ‘virtue of the herd’.  If he cannot lead, he goes alone ... He knows he is incommunicable: he finds it tasteless to be familiar ... When not speaking to himself, he wears a mask.  There is a solitude within him that is inaccessible to praise or blame.  (Genius & Greatness & Solitary & Superiority)  Friedrich Nietzsche

 

 

4,270.  I am convinced all of humanity is born with more gifts than we know.  Most are born geniuses and just get de-geniused rapidly.  (Humanity & Genius)  Richard Buckminster Fuller

 

 

6,166.  The only geniuses produced by the chaos of society are those who do something about it.  Chaos breeds geniuses.  It offers a man something to be a genius about.  (Society & Genius & Chaos)  B F Skinner, Walden Two
 

 

7,463.  True genius resides in the capacity for evaluation of uncertain, hazardous, and conflicting information.  (Information & Genius)  Winston Churchill

 

 

7,561.  Steve Jobs was a genius of the modern age.  He gave us tools to change our lives and the way we communicate.  (Computer & Genius & Communication)  Steve Jobs: iChanged the World, Channel 4

 

 

7,579.  Here’s to the crazy ones.  The misfits.  The rebels.  The troublemakers.  The round pegs in the square holes.  The ones who see things differently.  They’re not fond of rules.  And they have no respect for the status quo.  You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.  About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.  Because they change things.  They push the human race forward.  And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.  Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.  (Computer & Crazy & Genius & Rebellion & Change)  Apple Inc

 

 

11,023.  Genius is the ability to renew one’s emotions in daily experience.  (Art & Genius)  Paul Cezanne

 

 

11,111.  Delacroix was passionately in love with passion, and coldly determined to seek the means of expressing passion in the most visible manner.  In this dual character, be it said in passing, we find the two distinguishing marks of the most substantial geniuses, extreme geniuses.  (Art & Passion & Genius)  Charles Baudelaire

 

 

11,412.  Genius … is the child of imitation.  (Art & Genius)  Joshua Reynolds, Discourses on Art December 1769

 

 

11,616.  Klee's idiosyncrasies always remained somewhat beyond the law, as it were.  For ‘genius is the defect in the system’, stated the conscientious system builder, who knew that genius was the only thing that could neither be taught nor learned.  (Art & Genius)  Karl Ruhrberg, in Art of the 20th century I 2000

 

 

22,923.  No-one appreciates genius any more.  (GBH Films & Genius)  Shadowman 2006 starring Steven Seagal & Eva Pope & Imelda Staunton & Vincent Riotta & Michael Elwun & Skye Bennett & Garrick Hagon & Alex Ferns, director Michael Keusch, CIA guy to hero

 

 

23,541.  The distance between insanity and genius is measured only by success.  (Spy Films & Insanity & Genius & Success)  Tomorrow Never Dies 1997 starring Pierce Brosnan & Judi Dench & Jonathan Pryce & Michaelle Yeoh & Teri Hatcher & Ricky Jay & Gotz Otto & Joe Don Baker & Vincent Schiavelli & Samantha Bond et al, director Roger Spottiswoode, Elliot Carver

 

 

43,498.  I don’t consider myself to be a genius at chess, I consider myself more to be a genius who just happens to play chess.  (Chess & Genius)  Bobby Fischer

 

 

51,200.  But the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses.  They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright brothers.  But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.  (Laughter & Genius)  Carl Sagan, Broca’s Brain: Reflections on the Romance of Science

 

 

49,437.  The labours of men of genius, however erroneously directed, scarcely ever fail in ultimately turning to the solid advantage of mankind.  Mary Shelley

 

 

74,571.  Genius is one per cent inspiration, ninety-nine per cent perspiration.  Thomas Alva Edison 1847-1931, American inventor

74,574.  Genius is only a greater aptitude for patience.  (Genius & Patience)  Comte de Buffon

 

 

74,575.  When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him.  Jonathan Swift

 

 

74,576.  These are times in which a genius would wish to live ... Great necessities call out great virtues.  (Genius & Virtue)  Abigail Adams, wife of John Adams, mother of John Quincy Adams

 

 

74,579.  Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities.  The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence.  Albert Einstein

 

 

74,580.  ‘Eccentricities of genius, Sam,’ said Mr Pickwick.  Charles Dickens, The Pickwick Papers

 

 

74,581.  Genius does what it must, and Talent does what it can.  (Genius & Talent)  Owen Meredith, Last Words of a Sensitive Second-Rate Poet 1868

 

 

74,582.  The true genius is a mind of large general powers, accidentally determined to some particular direction.  Samuel Johnson, Lives of the English Poets
