Genius without education is like silver in the mine.
Benjamin Franklin quotes
Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
Calvin Coolidge quotes
Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.
Thomas Alva Edison quotes
Since when was genius found respectable?
Elizabeth Barrett Browning quotes
The principle mark of genius is not perfection but originality, the opening of new frontiers.
Arthur Koestler quotes
There is no great genius free from some tincture of madness.
No great genius has ever existed without some touch of madness.
There was never a genius without a tincture of madness.
When a true genius appears in this world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him.
Jonathan Swift quotes
Books are the legacies that a great genius leaves to mankind, which are delivered down from generation to generation as presents to the posterity of those who are yet unborn.
Joseph Addison quotes
