Prediction is not just one of the things your brain does.
It is the primary function of the neo-cortex,
And the foundation of intelligence.
One of the indictments of civilizations is that happiness
and intelligence are so rarely found in the same person.
Talent wins games,
But teamwork and intelligence wins championships.
A man of genius has a right to any mode of expression.
Man is the most intelligent of the animals –
And the most silly.
There is no greater evidence of superior intelligence
than to be surprised at nothing.
I can’t tell you if genius is hereditary,
Because heaven has granted me no offspring.
Genius always finds itself a century too early.
You have to be smart.
The easy days are over.
