DISCERNMENT
[ Also see Appreciation Discretion Discrimination Foresight Intelligence Mind Observation Penetration Perception Sense Sight Taste Wisdom ]

The idiot, the Indian, the child, and unschooled farmer's boy stand nearer to the light by which nature is to be read, than the dissector or the antiquary.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Discernment is a power of the understanding in which few excel. Is not that owing to its connection with impartiality and truth? for are not prejudice and partiality blind?
      - Sir Fulke Greville, 1st Baron Brooke, Lord Brooke

Simple creatures, whose thoughts are not taken up, like those of educated people, with the care of a great museum of dead phrases, are very quick to see the live facts which are going on about them.
      - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

Lynx-eyed toward our equals, and moles to ourselves.
      - Jean de la Fontaine

There seems to be no part of knowledge in fewer hands than that of discerning when to have done.
      - Jonathan Swift

To succeed in the world, it is much more necessary to possess the penetration to discern who is a fool than to discover who is a clever man.
      - Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Perigord
