Opinionated quotations from the famous and not-so-famous.

RT Eyes Tip Jar

 

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.

Anna Pavlova

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.

Duane Alan Hahn

The Good and the Bad

Negative ions are good for us. You might want to avoid positive ion generators and ozone generators. Whenever I need a new air cleaner (with negative ion generator), I buy it from surroundair.com. A plain old air cleaner is better than nothing, but one that produces negative ions makes the air in a room fresher and easier to breathe. It also helps to brighten my mood.

Never litter. If you can't find a trash can, take it home and throw it away there.

Hydrofracking is bad for you, your family, your friends, and the environment.

Some people appear to have a mental illness because they have a vitamin B deficiency. I take B-Right.

Unfermented soy is bad! “When she stopped eating soy, the mental problems went away.”
