The effusions of genius, or rather the manifestations of what is called talent, are often the effects of distempered nerves and complexional spleen, as pearls are morbid secretions.
      - Robert Walsh

Genius is not a single power, but a combination of great powers. It reasons, but it is not reasoning; it judges, but it is not judgment; it imagines, but it is not imagination; it feels deeply and fiercely, but it is not passion. It is neither, because it is all.
      - Edwin Percy Whipple

Genius may be almost defined as the faculty of acquiring poverty.
      - Edwin Percy Whipple

Of the three requisitions of genius, the first is soul, and the second, soul, and the third soul.
      - Edwin Percy Whipple

Inventive genius requires pleasurable mental activity as a condition for its vigorous exercise.
      - Alfred North Whitehead

Genius finds its own road and carries its own lamp.
      - Robert Aris Willmott

The light of genius never sets, but sheds itself upon other faces, in different hues of splendor. Homer glows in the softened beauty of Virgil, and Spenser revives in the decorated learning of Gray.
      - Robert Aris Willmott

Genius is inconsiderate, self-relying, and, like unconscious beauty, without any intention to please.
      - Isaac Mayer Wise
