					                                 GENIUS
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.
Carl Sagan (1934 - 1996)

Genius is of no country.
Charles Churchill

Everyone is born with genius, but most people only keep it a few minutes.

Elbert Hubbard (1856 - 1915)

Genius hath electric power which earth can never tame.

The public is wonderfully tolerant. It forgives everything except genius.

He was a genius - that is to say, a man who does superlatively and without
obvious effort something that most people cannot do by the uttermost
