Talent Vs Genius Quotes By Stuart Dodgson Collingwood

Talent Vs Genius Quotes By Luc De Clapiers

Superficial knowledge ... is hurtful to those who possess true genius; for it necessarily draws them away from their main object, wastes their industry over details and subjects foreign to their needs and natural talent, and lastly does not serve, as they flatter themselves, to prove the breadth of their mind.
