To do what others cannot do is talent. To do what talent cannot do is genius.

Will Henry

Talent hits a target no one else can hit; Genius hits a target no one else can see.

Arthur Schopenhauer

Genius is childhood recaptured.

Jean Baudrillard

Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow the talent to the dark place where it leads.

Erica Jong

All of us do not have equal talent, but all of us should have an equal opportunity to develop our talent.

John F. Kennedy

Use those talents you have. You will make it. You will give joy to the world. Take this tip from nature: The woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except those who sang best.

Bernard Meltzer

No one respects a talent that is concealed.

Desiderius Erasmus

It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer.

Albert Einstein

Every man of genius sees the world at a different angle from his fellows, and there is his tragedy.

Havelock Ellis

I don't have a lot of respect for talent. Talent is genetic. It's what you do with it that counts.

Martin Ritt

No one can arrive from being talented alone. God gives talent; work transforms talent into genius.

Anna Pavlova

It is not enough to have a good mind; the main thing is to use it well.

Rene Descartes

The important thing is not to stop questioning.

Albert Einstein

Curiosity is one of the most permanent and certain characteristics of a vigorous intellect.

Samuel Johnson

Genius is the ability to put into effect what is in your mind.

F. Scott Fitzgerald

In every work of genius we recognize our own rejected thoughts.

Emerson

Everyone is a genius at least once a year. The real geniuses simply have their bright ideas closer together.

Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

A lot of humans believe they are intelligent, but it's more of a mainstream notion of what intelligence is. 'Intelligence' on this planet is usually made up of 10% actual intelligence, 40% self-importance, 30% arrogance, and 20% finger-pointing at those who are less intelligent and talented as if they could somehow fight genetics and burst forth into brilliant glowing beings of light and wisdom if they would only try hard enough.
