the spiritual ends for which we live."

(Nor would we want a world with that many geniuses). I am not
arguing that we all have exactly the same potential. I am not arguing

ever get to know our own true potential, and that many of us mistake
early difficulties for innate limits."

Even grappling with how to explore the subject of "genius" is a task
fraught with pitfalls. I think it can safely be said that neither race nor
class limits the potential of an individual. People who are gifted
with unusual intellectual ability or creativity - and who work diligently
to make those talents a reality - we often call geniuses.
Dick Russell, Black Genius
To me, a genius is someone with a brilliant mind who has had great
accomplishments in a challenging field, and changed the world
in some meaningful way. As vague as this definition may seem,
the essence of genius is limitless. There appear to be no bounds
to what geniuses can accomplish. To define it much further,
is to limit something that is supposed to be limitless.
I. C. Robledo, The Secret Principles of Genius
"The man of genius inspires us with a boundless confidence in our own
Ralph Waldo Emerson

of being at work. This same level of genius applies to the infinitely complex
intelligence in the design of our bodies and the entire universe.
Peter Ralston, The Genius of Being
Genius is more a reflection of one's ability to assimilate beyond
that which can be obviously seen. It means that issues or problems
are the fuel or catalyst for positive change rather than a roadblock
