If you imagine someone with 100 percent determination and 100 percent intelligence, you can discard a lot of intelligence before they stop succeeding. But if you start discarding determination, you very quickly get an ineffectual and perpetual grad student.
Paul Graham
I think what he’s – what he believes, and he may be correct, I don’t know, that we have some intelligence information that leads us to know some things about what’s going on in Iraq that we haven’t revealed to others.
Lawrence Eagleburger
I know from my own experience that there is much more to ‘intelligence’ than an IQ number. In fact, I hesitate to believe that any system could really reflect the complexity and uniqueness of one person’s mind, or meaningfully describe the nature of his or her potential.
Daniel Tammet
It’s a scientific fact that if you stay in California you lose one point of your IQ every year.
Truman Capote
every man is free to rise as far as he’s able or willing, but the degree to which he thinks determines the degree to which he’ll rise.
Ayn Rand
Intelligence may be taken as a necessary, but not sufficient, cause of moral advance. All morally advanced children are bright, but not all bright children are morally advanced.
Lawrence Kohlberg
Mystery is not profoundness.
Charles Caleb Colton
There is no excuse for deceiving children. And when, as must happen in conventional families, they find that their parents have lied, they lose confidence in them and feel justified in lying to them.
Bertrand Russell
Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.
Henry Ford
I won’t say that I’m an agnostic, since agnosticism maintains that one cannot know… but I’m not averse to the idea of some intelligence or some organizing force that set up the initial conditions of the universe in such a way that ultimately generated stars, planets and life.
B. F. Skinner
When AI approximates Machine Intelligence, then many online and computer-run RPGs will move towards actual RPG activity. Nonetheless, that will not replace the experience of ‘being there,’ any more than seeing a theatrical motion picture can replace the stage play.
Gary Gygax
Many can argue that it is our power of intelligence that is the key to the human domination of our planet. I suggest that it is the ability to put our thoughts into words that can be communicated to others.
Yehuda Berg
Clever people will recognize and tolerate nothing but cleverness.
Henri Frederic Amiel
One of the great intellectual failures of the American intelligence community, and especially the counterterrorism community, is to assume if someone hasn’t attacked us, it’s because he can’t or because we’ve defeated him.
Michael Scheuer
A great many people think that polysyllables are a sign of intelligence.
Barbara Walters
Don’t try to be brave when it is enough to be intelligent.
Paulo Coelho
But the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright Brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.
Carl Sagan
Ignorance is no excuse, it’s the real thing.
Irene Peter
No one is mediocre who has good sense and good sentiments.

Cynthia Lewis
Emotion is often what we rely upon to carry us across the unfathomable voids in our intelligence.
Bryant H. McGill
We worked to develop our own operations to advance U.S. counterterrorism objectives by penetrating terrorist safe havens and collecting intelligence that would inform policy and enable our own operations.
Cofer Black
The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.
Albert Einstein
The real question is, when will we draft an artificial intelligence bill of rights? What will that consist of? And who will get to decide that?
Gray Scott
My father was always slightly bemused by my success. Although he knew that I had reasonable intelligence, he always thought that I was a little bit lazy.
Terry Wogan
I love the United States, but I see here everything is measured by success, by how much money it makes, not the satisfaction to the individual.
John F. Akers
We live in a culture in which intelligence is denied relevance altogether, in a search for radical innocence, or is defended as an instrument of authority and repression. In my view, the only intelligence worth defending is critical, dialectical, skeptical, desimplifying.
Susan Sontag
Fluid intelligence is not a Big Five personality trait: It’s a measurement of one’s ability to rapidly learn and apply a rule set. As an entrepreneur, you’re rapidly dealing with different issues, and your ability to switch from one issue to another is very important.
Adeo Ressi
Doing easily what others find difficult is talent; doing what is impossible for talent is genius.
Henri Frederic Amiel
An intelligent person is never afraid or ashamed to find errors in his understanding of things.
Bryant H. McGill
On those who overanalyze his music: When you tear the wings off a butterfly, it is no longer a butterfly
Claude Debussy
When I see a dolphin, I know it’s just as smart as I am.
Captain Beefheart
When a thought takes one’s breath away, a grammar lesson seems an impertinence.
Thomas Wentworth Higginson
The intelligent have a right over the ignorant; namely, the right of instructing them.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The best learners… often make the worst teachers. They are, in a very real sense, perceptually challenged. They cannot imagine what it must be like to struggle to learn something that comes so naturally to them.
Stephen Brookfield
I know this world is ruled by infinite intelligence. Everything that surrounds us- everything that exists – proves that there are infinite laws behind it. There can be no denying this fact. It is mathematical in its precision.
Thomas A. Edison
The surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that it has never tried to contact us.
Bill Watterson
Law rules throughout existence, a Law which is not intelligent, but Intelligence.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.
Albert Einstein
The average citizen in this county has more intelligence and sense in his little finger than the editor of ‘The New York Times’ has in his whole head.
George Wallace
My heart is singing for joy this morning! A miracle has happened! The light of understanding has shone upon my little pupil’s mind, and behold, all things are changed!
Anne Sullivan Macy
The teacher can always tell when you did your homework on the bus.
Cynthia Lewis
I am suggesting that we recognize that in network and interface research there is something as profound (and potential wild) as Artificial Intelligence.
Vernor Vinge
Wisdom loves the children of men, but she prefers those who come through foolishness to wisdom.
Paul Tillich
Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.
Stephen Hawking
Literary genres and techniques tend to take form in one’s mind somewhat the way computer templates provide form for different computer tasks.
Aberjhani
The first method for estimating the intelligence of a ruler is to look at the men he has around him.
Niccolo Machiavelli
Euclid taught me that without assumptions there is no proof. Therefore, in any argument, examine the assumptions.
Eric Temple Bell
The negative cost of Lewis and Clark entering the Garden of Eden is that later expeditions regardless of what they were intended to do, later expeditions did not deal with the native peoples with the intelligence with the almost kindly resolve that Lewis and Clark did.
William Least Heat-Moon
Being a unique superpower undermines the military intelligence of strategy. To think strategically, one has to imagine oneself in the enemy’s place. If one cannot do this, it is impossible to foresee, to take by surprise, to outflank. Misinterpreting an enemy can lead to defeat. This is how empires fall.
John Berger
As long as we can get redress in the courts, as long as the laws shall be honestly administered, as long as honesty and intelligence sit upon the bench, as long as intelligence sits in the chairs of jurors, this country will stand, the law will be enforced, and the law will be respected.
Robert Green Ingersoll
If the brain were so simple we could understand it, we would be so simple we couldn’t.
Lyall Watson
What is art? It is not just nature, it is nurtured nature. It is intelligence applied to what physical ability you have.
Rudolf Nureyev
When the conscious mind expands to embrace deeper levels of thinking, the thought wave becomes more powerful and results in added energy and intelligence.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Strong government doesn’t mean simply military power or an efficient intelligence apparatus. Instead, it should mean effective, fair administration – in other words, ‘good governance.’
Raghuram Rajan
The qualities I am looking for in Miss Right are intelligence and humour.
Brendan Coyle
Our intelligence agencies have vast powers, and Obama used them illegally to spy on political opponents. This can’t be allowed to stand.
Tom Fitton
Anti-social behavior is a trait of intelligence in a world full of conformists.
Nikola Tesla
If we encounter a man of rare intellect, we should ask him what books he reads.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
People who are smart get into Mensa. People who are really smart look around and leave.
James Randi
The assumption is that the right kind of society is an organic being not merely analogous to an organic being, but actually a living structure with appetites and digestions, instincts and passions, intelligence and reason.
Herbert Read
It takes a clever man to turn cynic and a wise man to be clever enough not to.
Fannie Hurst
A highbrow is a person educated beyond his intelligence.
Brander Matthews
Being an intellectual creates a lot of questions and no answers.
Janis Joplin
Football is a game about feelings and intelligence.
Jose Mourinho
Husbands, recognize your wife’s intelligence and her ability to counsel with you as a real partner regarding family plans, family activities, and family budgeting. Don’t be stingy with your time or with your means. Give her the opportunity to grow intellectually, emotionally, and socially as well as spiritually.
Ezra Taft Benson
Genius is independent of situation.
Charles Churchill
The man who looks for security, even in the mind, is like a man who would chop off his limbs in order to have artificial ones which will give him no pain or trouble.
Henry Miller
How much intelligence does it take to sneak up on a leaf?
Larry Niven
Dr. Rice’s record on Iraq gives me great concern. In her public statements she clearly overstated and exaggerated the intelligence concerning Iraq before the war in order to support the President’s decision to initiate military action against Iraq.
Carl Levin
I can normally tell how intelligent a man is by how stupid he thinks I am.
Cormac McCarthy
He whose intellect overcomes his lust is higher than the angels; he whose lust overcomes his intelligence is less than an animal.
Rumi
The cultivated person’s first duty is to be always prepared to rewrite the encyclopedia.
Umberto Eco
A John Updike is a once-in-a-generation phenomenon, if that generation is lucky: so comfortable in so many genres, the same lively, generous intelligence suffusing all he did.
George Saunders
There is no such thing as an underestimate of average intelligence.
Henry Adams
When you don’t have an education, you have to use your brains.
Paul Frank Baer
Everybody is ignorant, only on different subjects.
Will Rogers
I must have a prodigious quantity of mind; it takes me as much as a week sometimes to make it up.
Mark Twain
I was taught that the human brain was the crowning glory of evolution so far, but I think it’s a very poor scheme for survival.
Kurt Vonnegut
Men create real miracles when they use their God-given courage and intelligence.
Jean Anouilh
It is the fashion to style the present moment an extraordinary crisis.
Benjamin Disraeli
If one of the arguments against eating meat is to do with cruelty and animal intelligence, then lab meat avoids that. There’s also the environmental argument for it.
Margaret Atwood
Nothing spoils a good party like a genius.
Elsa Maxwell
Those who think their intellect will keep them from deception are already deceived.
Bill Johnson
Experience: that most brutal of teachers. But you learn, my God do you learn.
C. S. Lewis
Thought is the labor of the intellect, reverie is its pleasure.

Noel Coward
Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.
Ernest Hemingway
My darkness has been filled with the light of intelligence, and behold, the outer day-lit world was stumbling and groping in social blindness.
Helen Keller
It is only when you watch the dense mass of thousands of ants, crowded together around the Hill, blackening the ground, that you begin to see the whole beast, and now you observe it thinking, planning, calculating. It is an intelligence, a kind of live computer, with crawling bits for its wits.
Lewis Thomas
Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.
Robert Frost
Now we have technology where we can modify the genomics of individuals by gene transfer and genetic meddling, we may find that people will want to modify their children, enhance their intelligence, their strength and their beauty and all the other so-called desirable characteristics.
Robert Winston
Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.
Laozi
Not all intelligence can be artificial now, so if we make a mistake, the consequences are no longer simply located within an institution or a national culture.
William Irwin Thompson
As a nation we have, over the past seven years, been rebuilding our intelligence with powerful capabilities that many thought we would no longer need after the Cold War. We have been rebuilding our clandestine service, our satellite and other technical collection, our analytical depth and expertise.
George Tenet
Every true genius is bound to be naive.
Friedrich Schiller
What is important to a relationship is a harmony of emotional roles and not too great a disparity in the general level of intelligence.
Mirra Komarovsky
Policing is an integral part of governance. It is a whole, but it is also a part of the larger whole. Just like a human organ like the head, it’s got intelligence, stamina, strategy and surveillance. But it cannot function independently in the absence of other life-sustaining organs.
Kiran Bedi
I do think we need to at least register artificial intelligence units to be able to monitor and control them. Because we want to control them and not vice versa.
Jens Martin Skibsted
It is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things.
Henry David Thoreau
I have met with some of them – very honest fellows, who, with all their stupidity, had a kind of intelligence and an upright good sense, which cannot be the characteristics of fools.
Giacomo Casanova
Intelligence is fragmentary and hard to discover, so it is by joining forces and sharing information with our allies that we maximise our ability to protect ourselves.
Dominic Grieve
We will have to continue to improve our human intelligence system-something that was, unfortunately, lacking in the years which led up to September 11. This is going to be a continuing process of change.
John Sununu
To me, being an intellectual doesn’t mean knowing about intellectual issues; it means taking pleasure in them.
Jacob Bronowski
It would never do for me to lose my wits in the presence of a man who had none too many of his own.
Anna Katharine Green
Primitive does not mean stupid.
Albie Sachs
He is not only dull himself, but the cause of dulness in others.
Samuel Johnson
Whatever the cost of our libraries, the price is cheap compared to that of an ignorant nation.
Walter Cronkite
Of course it is a very simple matter to identify genes which might modify intelligence or memory and start thinking about whether you want to enhance a human, and the next generation is going to have to deal with that issue. Should we be trying to enhance humans rather than trying to educate them and so on?
Robert Winston
I like shows that have some level of intelligence to them. When it’s not as predictable, when you don’t know what’s coming at you.
Mehmet Oz
Skill is successfully walking a tightrope between the twin towers of New York’s World Trade Center. Intelligence is not trying.
Marilyn vos Savant
Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it.
Henry Ford
To understand a difficult topic like Iraq takes patience and care. Unfortunately, you rarely hear a patient, careful or thoughtful discussion of intelligence these days.
George Tenet
I can’t tell you if genius is hereditary, because heaven has granted me no offspring.
James Whistler
What matters is hard work, and emotional intelligence.
Mickey Drexler
I began even as a boy to realize how wide the world can be for a man of free intelligence.
George Woodcock
I wonder if illiterate people get the full effect of alphabet soup?
Jerry Seinfeld
When your IQ rises to 28, sell.
Irwin Corey
The mind of man has perplexed itself with many hard questions. Is space infinite, and in what sense? Is the material world infinite in extent, and are all places within that extent equally full of matter? Do atoms exist or is matter infinitely divisible?
James C. Maxwell
As a college student, what really interested me was the human brain and human intelligence.
Sebastian Thrun
If knowledge is power and power corrupt, does knowledge corrupt?
James Moore
I do have concerns about the current efforts to restructure our nation’s intelligence community.
Ted Stevens
There is nobody so irritating as somebody with less intelligence and more sense than we have.
Don Herold
Such is the nature of men, that howsoever they may acknowledge many others to be more witty, or more eloquent, or more learned; yet they will hardly believe there be many so wise as themselves.
Thomas Hobbes
Intelligence complicates. Wisdom simplifies.
Mason Cooley
Some governments choose to cooperate with the United States in intelligence, law enforcement, or military matters. The co-operation is a two-way street. We share intelligence that has helped protect European countries from attack, helping save European lives.
Condoleezza Rice
Anger may glance into the breast of a wise man, but rests only in the bosom of fools.
David C. Stark
Democracy has not failed; the intelligence of the race has failed before the problems the race has raised
Robert M. Hutchins
The woman who thinks she is intelligent demands equal rights with men. A woman who is intelligent does not.
Sidonie Gabrielle Colette
You’ll have a lot more respect for a bird after you try making a nest.
Cynthia Lewis
Joy in looking and comprehending is nature’s most beautiful gift.
Albert Einstein
Love is light, warmth and comfort. Understanding is just light.
June Goodfield
It’s good to remind intelligence producers and consumers alike about the need to ‘warn of emerging conditions, trends, threats and opportunities’ and the potential for discontinuities.
Michael Hayden
It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts.
John Wooden
When you go to the mind reader, do you get half price?
David Letterman
And when they encounter works of art which show that using new media can lead to new experiences and to new consciousness, and expand our senses, our perception, our intelligence, our sensibility, then they will become interested in this music.
Karlheinz Stockhausen
The greatest scholars are not usually the wisest people.
Geoffrey Chaucer
A well-maintained physique is a great business card. Ideas and intelligence are what matters, but if you have a well-maintained physique, it’s better.
Giorgio Armani
The truth is more important than the facts.
Frank Lloyd Wright
The highest ideals are human intelligence, creativity and love. Respect these above all.
Penn Jillette
Success in investing doesn’t correlate with I.Q. Once you are above the level of 25; once you have ordinary intelligence, what you need is the temperament to control the urges that get other people into trouble in investing.
Warren Buffett
Teaching is the highest form of understanding.
Aristotle
The reason we are doing these types of pat downs and using the advanced imagery technology is trying to take the latest intelligence and how we know al Qaeda and affiliates want to hurt us, they want to bring down whether it is passenger air craft or cargo aircraft.
John Pistole
Trump’s alliance with Russia’s Vladimir Putin, in defiance of America’s own intelligence community, the Department of Justice, and the bipartisan report of the Senate Intelligence Committee, forces us to face that the fundamental principles of our nation are under attack.
Heather Cox Richardson
To educate the intelligence is to expand the horizon of its wants and desires.
James Russell Lowell
Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocre minds. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence.
Albert Einstein
Let schoolmasters puzzle their brain, With grammar, and nonsense, and learning, Good liquor, I stoutly maintain, Gives genius a better discerning.
Oliver Goldsmith
You’re born with intelligence, but not with ethics.
Massad Ayoob
Love is like an hourglass, with the heart filling up as the brain empties.
Jules Renard
This president has been reluctant to hold anybody accountable. No one was held accountable after September the 11th. Nobody’s been held accountable after the clear flaws in intelligence leading up to the war in Iraq.
Bob Graham
I tell myself that God gave my children many gifts – spirit, beauty, intelligence, the capacity to make friends and to inspire respect. There was only one gift he held back – length of life.
Rose Kennedy
The earth flourishes, or is overrun with noxious weeds and brambles, as we apply or withhold the cultivating hand. So fares it with the intellectual system of man.
Horace Mann
Whatever you do, do it with intelligence, and keep the end in view.
Thomas a Kempis
I come from the Town of Stupidity; it lieth about four degrees beyond the City of Destruction.
John Bunyan
You are not entitled to your opinion. You are entitled to your informed opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant.
Harlan Ellison
Prior to the passage of the Patriot Act, it was very difficult – often impossible – for us to share information with the Central Intelligence Agency, with NSA, with the other intelligence agencies, and likewise, for them to share information with us.
Robert Mueller
Artificial intelligence is destroying the traditional world of work.
Beppe Grillo
The release of atomic power has changed everything except our way of thinking … the solution to this problem lies in the heart of mankind. If only I had known, I should have become a watchmaker. (1945)
Albert Einstein
Across all U.S. intelligence agencies, there is a lack of cultural respect and a poorly tuned attitude toward foreign peoples and cultures.
Malcolm Nance
I quit therapy because my analyst was trying to help me behind my back.
Richard Lewis
There is but one kind of love; God is love, and all his creatures derive theirs from his; only it is modified by the different degrees of intelligence in different beings and creatures.
John James Audubon
Before the math and the momentum overwhelm us all, we are going to solve this nation’s economic problems. And I’m going to level with you: We don’t have that much time. But if we are serious, and smart, and we lead, we can do this.
Paul Ryan
Intelligence is the ability to avoid doing work, yet getting the work done.
Linus Torvalds
We have been working hard to think about what our combined needs are going to be in the way of intelligence capabilities, not today but 15 to 20 years in the future.
Stephen Cambone
Even Gaddafi’s adversaries assure us that he stood out for his intelligence as a student; he was expelled from high-school for his anti-monarchic activities. He managed to enroll in another high-school and later graduated in law at the University of Benghazi at the age of 21.
Fidel Castro
I take four planes a week, honestly. You know, I am for intelligence screening.
Aaron Schock
The Constitution was written by 55 educated and highly intelligent men in Philadelphia in 1787, but it was written so that it could be understood by people of limited education and modest intelligence.
John Jay Hooker
There is nothing about an individual as important as his IQ, except possibly his morals.
Lewis Terman
Intelligence is the ability to solve problems, and consciousness is the ability to feel things and have subjective experiences.

I was a smart kid, but I hated school.
Eminem
Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
Mark Twain
If you wish to spare yourself and your venerable family, give heed to my advice with the ear of intelligence. If you do not, you will see what God has willed.
Hulagu Khan
The brain is like a muscle. When it is in use we feel very good. Understanding is joyous.
Carl Sagan
Corruption and manipulation of the ICC by foreign intelligence services subvert the original mission and purpose of the ICC.
Robert C. O’Brien
Intelligence is derived from two words
J. Martin Klotsche
Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.
Albert Einstein
Intellectuals are too sentimental for me.
Margaret Anderson
As human beings we are all the same. We have this marvelous intelligence, which sometimes creates problems for us, but when influenced by warm-heartedness can be very constructive. In this context we need to appreciate the value of having moral principles.
Dalai Lama
I don’t think my intelligence is naturally analytic or political.
Seamus Heaney
The notion of superhumans is using bioengineering and artificial intelligence to upgrade human abilities. If they use the power to change themselves, to change their own minds, their own desires, then we have no idea what they will want to do.
Yuval Noah Harari
I am so clever that sometimes I don’t understand a single word of what I am saying.
Oscar Wilde
The phrases that men hear or repeat continually, end by becoming convictions and ossify the organs of intelligence.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Your intellect may be confused, but your emotions will never lie to you.
Roger Ebert
The growth of wisdom may be gauged exactly by the diminution of ill-temper.
Friedrich Nietzsche
A good leader is always looking for people smarter and more experienced than they are. If you are the smartest one in the room, then you are stupid.
Robert Kiyosaki
What a splendid head, yet no brain.
Aesop
The time is always right to do what is right.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
I’d never bought the idea that you don’t lose money by underestimating the intelligence of the audience. Although perhaps I should add that I’ve never really made that much money.
John Lloyd
A sign of intelligence is an awareness of one’s own ignorance.
Niccolo Machiavelli
intellect is a sin that must be atoned for by leading exactly the life of those who have none.
Madame de Stael
It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.
Albert Einstein
If you would take, you must first give, this is the beginning of intelligence.
Lao Tzu
Instinct perfected is a faculty of using and even constructing organized instruments; intelligence perfected is the faculty of making and using unorganized instruments.
Henri Bergson
Fluid intelligence doesn’t look much like the capacity to memorise and recite facts, the skills that people have traditionally associated with brainpower.
Jamais Cascio
To me the worst thing seems to be a school principally to work with methods of fear, force and artificial authority. Such treatment destroys the sound sentiments, the sincerity and the self-confidence of pupils and produces a subservient subject.
Albert Einstein
If I could read a book, I’d definitely read one of yours.
Paris Hilton
My experience is the White House is not a very good place to coordinate intelligence, much less to integrate it.
Dennis C. Blair
There are only two races on this planet – the intelligent and the stupid.
John Fowles
Character is higher than intellect… A great soul will be strong to live, as well as strong to think.

The mind of a bigot to the pupil of the eye; the more light you pour on it, the more it contracts.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.
Man is an intelligence in servitude to his organs.

How anybody dresses is indicative of his self-concept. If students are dirty and ragged, it indicates they are not interested in tidying up their intellects either.
S. I. Hayakawa
I’m a pessimist because of intelligence, but an optimist because of will.
Antonio Gramsci
The strength of character and emotional intelligence to face your failures and learn from them are at the core of success.
Robert Kiyosaki
We are now at a point in time when the ability to receive, utilize, store, transform and transmit data – the lowest cognitive form – has expanded literally beyond comprehension. Understanding and wisdom are largely forgotten as we struggle under an avalanche of data and information.
Dee Hock
They don’t tell you this in school, Everybody plays the fool.
Smokey Robinson
Ignorance never settles a question.
Benjamin Disraeli
Most authors have one idea per book. Shakespeare had two per sentence.
Lauren Hutton
Thought is more than a right – it is the very breath of man. Whoever fetters thought attacks man himself. To speak, to write, to publish, are things, so far as the right is concerned, absolutely identical. They are the ever-enlarging circles of intelligence in action; they are the sonorous waves of thought.
Victor Hugo
Your people smarts will prove ten times more valuable than all the book smarts you can’t get.
Barbara Corcoran
It has always been my private conviction that any man who puts his intelligence up against a fish and loses had it coming.
John Steinbeck
I’ve long maintained during my 50-plus year career in intelligence that leaks endanger national security, they compromise sources, methods, and tradecraft, and they can put assets’ lives at risk.
James Clapper
Look, people have an image of Italians. When I go somewhere in the world, I don’t care where it is, when they look at me it’s not about my intelligence. It’s who can I beat up.
Danny Aiello
As Prime Minister Netanyahu and Defense Minister Barak have repeatedly said, the intelligence and security relationship between the United States and Israel at present is unprecedented. It has never been stronger.
Susan Rice
Don’t ever wrestle with a pig. You’ll both get dirty, but the pig will enjoy it.
Cale Yarborough
The philosopher should be a man willing to listen to every suggestion,but determined to judge for himself.He should not be a respector of persons,but of things.Truth should be his primary object.
Michael Faraday
A year spent in artificial intelligence is enough to make one believe in God.
Alan Perlis
An intellectual is someone whose mind watches itself.
Albert Camus
Sciences may be learned by rote, but wisdom not.
Laurence Sterne
When you know better you do better.
Maya Angelou
Small is the number of people who see with their eyes and think with their minds.
Albert Einstein
I don’t know how to depict intelligence.
David Fincher
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would suffice.
Albert Einstein
I took a speed-reading course and read War and Peace in twenty minutes. It involves Russia.
Woody Allen
The improvement of the understanding is for two ends; first, for our own increase of knowledge; secondly, to enable us to deliver and make out that knowledge to others.
John Locke
The work is intense. You have to calculate a great deal very quickly which requires football intelligence and real concentration. Part of my role is to shuttle between the defense and the attacking lines to make sure that the ball circulates well and quickly.
Sergio Busquets
Sooner or later, the U.S. will face mounting job losses due to advances in automation, artificial intelligence, and robotics.
Oren Etzioni
I’m not the smartest fellow in the world, but I can sure pick smart colleagues.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
The terrorist uses surprise and stealth, and the only way to defeat that is by having accurate and timely intelligence.
Bill Nelson
Bad teaching is teaching which presents an endless procession of meaningless signs, words and rules, and fails to arouse the imagination.
W. W. Sawyer
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.
Douglas Adams
The question that will decide our destiny is not whether we shall expand into space. It is: shall we be one species or a million? A million species will not exhaust the ecological niches that are awaiting the arrival of intelligence.
Freeman Dyson
In Europe they call geeks ‘smart people,’ and frankly I think we live in a culture that doesn’t value intelligence enough; so I am very proud in saying that I am a geek.
James Marsters
the wide discrepancy between reason and feeling may be unreal; it is not improbable that intellect is a high form of feeling – a specialized, intensive feeling about intuitions.
Susanne Katherina Langer
Our men and women in uniform deserve the best intelligence possible to help them protect America.
Chris Cannon
Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius. Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Guantanamo allows us to secure dangerous detainees without the risk of escape, while at the same time providing us with valuable intelligence information on how best to proceed in the war against terror and prevent future attacks.
Jim Ryun
By the time we get to the 2040s, we’ll be able to multiply human intelligence a billionfold. That will be a profound change that’s singular in nature. Computers are going to keep getting smaller and smaller. Ultimately, they will go inside our bodies and brains and make us healthier, make us smarter.
Ray Kurzweil
Since new developments are the products of a creative mind, we must therefore stimulate and encourage that type of mind in every way possible.
George Washington Carver
If you are going to have to play defense all the time, you cannot have the kind of ingenuity, assertiveness, independence, and intelligence which is what has made our country strong.
Arlen Specter
Despite our very recent appearance on the planet, humanity combines arrogance with increasing material demands, even as we become more numerous. Our toughness is a delusion. Have we the intelligence and discipline to vigilantly guard against our tendency to grow without limit?
Lynn Margulis
Genius is knowing to stay silent as others demonstrate their ignorance.
Eric Lau
I feel a near passion for intelligence at grips with itself and not letting go.
Monique Wittig
In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
George Orwell
We need to make a greater investment in human intelligence.
Bob Graham
Kindness and intelligence don’t always deliver us from the pitfalls and traps: there are always failures of love, of will, of imagination. There is no way to take the danger out of human relationships.
Barbara Grizzuti Harrison
Genius ain’t anything more than elegant common sense.
Josh Billings
I won’t insult your intelligence by suggesting that you really believe what you just said.
William F. Buckley, Jr.
Women have talent and intelligence but, due to social constraints and prejudices, it is still a long distance away from the goal of gender equality.
Pratibha Patil
Immaturity is the incapacity to use one’s intelligence without the guidance of another.
Immanuel Kant
Consider how wool is turned into an elegantly designed carpet by coming into contact with an intelligent person.
Rumi
One of the things that Ivar knew about Mrs. Walker was that she would only tell him what she knew if he asked the right question, so he spent a portion of his time meditating over what he might ask Mrs. Walker and how he might phrase the question.
Jane Smiley
In our civilization, and under our republican form of government, intelligence is so highly honored that it is rewarded by exemption from the cares of office.
Ambrose Bierce
Although I do use some of my psychology training in comedy, but it’s more like pop psychology, not a course of treatment or anything. To me, it’s more like social intelligence.
Matt Walsh
Knowledge is power.
Francis Bacon
The PATRIOT Act brought down the wall separating intelligence agencies from law enforcement and other entities charged with protecting the Nation from terrorism.
Chris Chocola
The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widely spread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.
Bertrand Russell
We distinguish the excellent man from the common man by saying that the former is the one who makes great demands on himself, and the latter who makes no demands on himself.
Jose Ortega y Gasset
An inventor is simply a fellow who doesn’t take his education too seriously.
Charles Kettering
I’m a meathead, man. You’ve got smart people, and you’ve got dumb people. I just happen to be dumb.
Keanu Reeves
If you keep missing, get closer to the basket.
Cynthia Lewis
Cynical realism is the intelligent man’s best excuse for doing nothing in an intolerable situation.
Aldous Huxley
If human beings are immortal, so are animals. If matter has the ability to remember, it also has the ability to think.
Franz Grillparzer
The intelligence investigation under the leadership of Senator Church, which I know has helped cause this investigation by you, points out that the agencies did not disclose certain facts to us and that certain plots were going on.
John Sherman Cooper
Only a well-rounded intellect, a spirit nourished in the eternal sources of intelligence and culture, of justice and wisdom, is a safeguard against both indifference and skepticism.
Ameen Rihani
We should take care not to make the intellect our goal; it has, of course, powerful muscles, but no personality.
Albert Einstein
I do not – I never believed it’s better to kill a terrorist than to detain him. We want to detain as many terrorists as possible so we can elicit the intelligence from them in the appropriate manner so that we can disrupt follow-on terrorist attacks.
John O. Brennan
Science has not yet taught us if madness is or is not the sublimity of the intelligence.
Edgar Allan Poe
I’d take the awe of understanding over the awe of ignorance any day.
Douglas Adams
I am sometimes shocked by the blasphemies of those who think themselves pious.
Bertrand Russell
The sad thing about artificial intelligence is that it lacks artifice and therefore intelligence.
Jean Baudrillard
The Germans certainly – the intelligence service believed that there were WMD. It turns out that we were all wrong, probably in my judgment, and that is most disturbing.
David Kay
The best time to frame an answer to the letters of a friend, is the moment you receive them. Then the warmth of friendship, and the intelligence received, most forcibly cooperate.
William Shenstone
I had been fed, in my youth, a lot of old wives’ tales about the way men would instantly forsake a beautiful woman to flock around a brilliant one. It is but fair to say that, after getting out in the world, I had never seen this happen.” [From a column dated November 17, 1928]
Dorothy Parker
But once you are in that field, emotional intelligence emerges as a much stronger predictor of who will be most successful, because it is how we handle ourselves in our relationships that determines how well we do once we are in a given job.
Daniel Goleman
It doesn’t matter that Bush scares the hell out of me. What matters is that he scares the hell out of a lot of very important people in Washington who can’t speak out, in the military, in the intelligence community.
Seymour Hersh
Let’s just be smart this time. I’m looking for smart.
Joe Biden
Knowledge is the parent of love; wisdom, love itself.
Julius Charles Hare
Intelligence is what you use when you don’t know what to do.
Jean Piaget
In politics stupidity is not a handicap.
Napoleon Bonaparte
In our society those who are in reality superior in intelligence can be accepted by their fellows only if they pretend they are not.
Marya Mannes
Errors using inadequate data are much less than those using no data at all.
Charles Babbage
If I were not an atheist, I would believe in a God who would choose to save people on the basis of the totality of their lives and not the pattern of their words. I think he would prefer an honest and righteous atheist to a TV preacher whose every word is God, God, God and whose every deed is foul, foul, foul.
Isaac Asimov
Seduction is about intelligence and wit. Someone who makes me laugh has every chance to seduce me.
Riccardo Tisci
Works of the intellect are great only by comparison with each other.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
It is not government’s job to mandate responsibility on our behalf. We have the intelligence and good sense to make wise consumption choices for ourselves and our children. It is up to us to do what is best for our health and our children’s health.
Mike Crapo
Schools are not intended to moralize a wicked world, but to impart knowledge and develop intelligence, with only two social aims in mind: prepare to take on one’s share in the world’s work, and perhaps in addition, lend a hand in improving society, after schooling is done.
Jacques Barzun
The higher the voice the smaller the intellect.
Ernest Newman
For the execution of the voyage to the Indies, I did not make use of intelligence, mathematics or maps.
Christopher Columbus
But our society does not grant nontraditional forms of intelligence equal recognition, no matter how much it would help us get along or truly enrich our lives.
Joan D. Vinge
Life is a festival only to the wise.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
You see a lot of smart guys with dumb women, but you hardly ever see a smart woman with a dumb guy.
Erica Jong
It is only the enlightened ruler and the wise general who will use the highest intelligence of the army for the purposes of spying, and thereby they achieve great results.
Sun Tzu
The voice of the intellect is a soft one, but it does not rest until it has gained a hearing.
Sigmund Freud
The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media.
William Colby
One thought fills immensity.
William Blake
The mere formulation of a problem is far more essential than its solution, which may be merely a matter of mathematical or experimental skills. To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle requires creative imagination and marks real advances in science.
Albert Einstein
It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.
Upton Sinclair
Intelligence in the service of poor instinct is really dangerous.
Gloria Steinem
Data is going to be dynamic… and, combined with the performance of computing that allows for artificial intelligence to be applied, is going to bring all kinds of insights and additives to enhance everyday life.
Brian Krzanich
Man is wise and constantly in quest of more wisdom; but the ultimate wisdom, which deals with beginnings, remains locked in a seed.
Hal Borland
Alas, nothing reveals man the way war does. Nothing so accentuates in him the beauty and ugliness, the intelligence and foolishness, the brutishness and humanity, the courage and cowardice, the enigma.
Oriana Fallaci
I’m grateful to intelligent people. That doesn’t mean educated. That doesn’t mean intellectual. I mean really intelligent. What black old people used to call ‘mother wit’ means intelligence that you had in your mother’s womb. That’s what you rely on. You know what’s right to do.
Maya Angelou
Being ignorant is not so much a shame, as being unwilling to learn.
Benjamin Franklin
If you expect the wise man to be as angry as the baseness of crimes requires, then he must not only be angry but go insane.
Seneca the Younger
Prejudice is the child of ignorance.
William Hazlitt
A man must be completely wanting in intelligence if he does not show it when actuated by love, malice, or necessity.
Jean de la Bruyere
There is nothing in which people more betray their character than in what they laugh at.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
In computer science, we stand on each other’s feet.
Brian Reid
There are so many things a large intelligence espionage organization can do to justify its existence, that people can get promotions for, because it could result in results.
Aldrich Ames
Artificial intelligence is growing up fast, as are robots whose facial expressions can elicit empathy and make your mirror neurons quiver.
Diane Ackerman
Humans have always used our intelligence and creativity to improve our existence. After all, we invented the wheel, discovered how to make fire, invented the printing press and found a vaccine for polio.
Naveen Jain
I signed up for military service in the months following 9/11, and later, as a military intelligence officer, I felt called, like so many others, to volunteer for deployment and service in Afghanistan.
Jason Kander
Your personality as the prime minister feeds through to what you emphasise, and what you don’t, how you’ll handle a situation – whether you’ve got the combination of intelligence or instincts to adapt and to make good decisions.
John Key
It’s a terrible shame if you’re born the brightest guy in your class. If you’re not, then you have to hustle-and that’s good.
Harold Prince
By far, the greatest danger of Artificial Intelligence is that people conclude too early that they understand it.
Eliezer Yudkowsky
The ability to take pleasure in one’s life is a skill and is a kind of intelligence. So intelligence is a hard thing to evaluate and it manifests itself in so many different ways. I do think the ability to know how to live a life and not be miserable is a sign of that.
Todd Solondz
I have always been convinced that the only way to get artificial intelligence to work is to do the computation in a way similar to the human brain. That is the goal I have been pursuing. We are making progress, though we still have lots to learn about how the brain actually works.
Geoffrey Hinton
If we wish to know the force of human genius, we should read Shakespeare. If we wish to see the insignificance of human learning, we may study his commentators.
William Hazlitt
If you’re not a liberal at twenty you have no heart, if you’re not a conservative at forty, you have no brain.
Winston Churchill
There’s a heart beneath the boobs and a brain beneath the wig.
Dolly Parton
Only the thinking man lives his life, the thoughtless man’s life passes him by.
Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach
There is little evidence that our individual intelligence has improved through recorded history.
James Lovelock
Intellect annuls fate. So far as a man thinks he is free.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Bill Gates wants people to think he’s Edison, when he’s really Rockefeller. Referring to Gates as the smartest man in America isn’t right… wealth isn’t the same thing as intelligence.
Larry Ellison
Mad, adj. Affected with a high degree of intellectual independence.
Ambrose Bierce
I have concluded that we are in a world made by rules created by an intelligence.
Michio Kaku
A stupid man’s report of what a clever man says can never be accurate, because he unconsciously translates what he hears into something he can understand.
Bertrand Russell
Always assume your opponent to be smarter than you.
Walther Rathenau
Elegance isn’t solely defined by what you wear. It’s how you carry yourself, how you speak, what you read.
Carolina Herrera
When our children are old enough, and if we can afford to, we send them to college, where … the point is to acquire the skills not of positive thinking but of critical thinking.
Barbara Ehrenreich
So, you know, I think that Democrats are being more successful in Congress and I’m really going to be proud of the role I will play tomorrow as ranking Democrat on the Intelligence Committee when this bill passes.
Jane Harman
I truly believe the intention of creating positive change is so important to the collective consciousness. When you have a group of people that have the intention and the capacity, talent, and intelligence to actualize those intentions, then you have something really powerful.
Jimmy Chin
Mind is just in the middle. You are nothing but a mess. If you can go beyond it, intelligence grows in you; if you go below it, any intelligence that you had disappears.
Rajneesh
It is good to rub and polish our brain against that of others.
Michel de Montaigne
I would like to take you seriously, but to do so would be an affront to your intelligence.
George Bernard Shaw
Lincoln made mistakes. Roosevelt made mistakes. Eisenhower made mistakes. The Battle of the Bulge was the biggest intelligence failure in American military history, much bigger than any in Vietnam or now. We didn’t know that the Soviets were moving 400,000 or 500,000 troops. We missed it.
Rudy Giuliani
Barbershop conversations are irrefutable proof that heads exist for the sake of hair.
Karl Kraus
It’s not enough to be able to spell “magnificence” in your bedroom. You have to be able to spell it at the microphone during the spelling bee.
Cynthia Lewis
If people knew how hard I worked to get my mastery, it wouldn’t seem so wonderful at all.
Michelangelo
A little learning is a dangerous thing; Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring.
Alexander Pope
Only the curious will learn and only the resolute will overcome the obstacles to learning. The quest quotient has always excited me more than the intelligence quotient.
Edmund Wilson
In the long term, artificial intelligence and automation are going to be taking over so much of what gives humans a feeling of purpose.
Matt Bellamy
My father ran London Films. He made films like ‘The Red Shoes,’ ‘The Third Man.’ And he had had a long career in the film business, which was bifurcated with a career in intelligence. He had to deal with gangsters, and sometimes he would take me with him. Also, I went to school with their children.
Mark Helprin
Stupidity is infinitely more fascinating that intelligence. Intelligence has its limits while stupidity has none.
Claude Chabrol
Generally among intelligent people are found nothing but paralytics and among men of action nothing but fools.
Andre Gide
He had just about enough intelligence to open his mouth when he wanted to eat, but certainly no more.
P. G. Wodehouse
What really matters for success, character, happiness and life long achievements is a definite set of emotional skills – your EQ – not just purely cognitive abilities that are measured by conventional IQ tests.
Daniel Goleman
The difference between intelligence and an education is this: that intelligence will make a good living for you, but education won’t do much for you at all.
Charles Kettering
I am a full-time Research Fellow at the Machine Intelligence Research Institute, a small 501(c)(3) public charity supported primarily by individual donations.
Eliezer Yudkowsky
Human language is the new UI layer, bots are like new applications, and digital assistants are meta apps. Intelligence is infused into all of your interactions.
Satya Nadella
Filthy language is used by people who don’t have the maturity or intelligence to express themselves with better words.
Nouman Ali Khan
The mathematician who pursues his studies without clear views of this matter, must often have the uncomfortable feeling that his paper and pencil surpass him in intelligence.
Ernst Mach
Democracy is self-creating coherence.
Mary Parker Follett
There are no great limits to growth because there are no limits of human intelligence, imagination, and wonder.
Ronald Reagan
I did my military service from 1989 – 92 and I was never shot at or had to fire on anybody. I was very lucky. I was more involved in intelligence and counter-intelligence.
Oded Fehr
Lincoln’s stature and strength, his intelligence and ambition – in short, all the elements which gave him popularity among men in New Salem, rendered him equally attractive to the fair sex of that village.
John George Nicolay
That penetrating gaze, that intelligence; it’s hard not to be anthropomorphic when you’re looking at a great ape – at any primate – but especially with gorillas. They’re just so magnificent.
K. A. Applegate
Well, our position, and our chairman has talked about this extensively, is that we had a lot of intelligence prior to 9/11. We knew that two al Qaeda operatives who ultimately participated in the 9/11 disaster were in the United States. We didn’t find them.
Richard Ben-Veniste
I grabbed my book and opened it up. I wanted to smell it. Heck, I wanted to kiss it. Yes, kiss it. That’s right, I am a book kisser. Maybe that’s kind of perverted or maybe it’s just romantic and highly intelligent.
Sherman Alexie
If you look at life with any honesty and intelligence, it’s clear that human nature is dark, vile, selfish, and despondent. But I also see a force in human nature, namely grace, that sometimes works against our natural moral entropy.
Scott Derrickson
Nothing marks a man’s character better than his attraction to intelligence.
Terry Goodkind
I think that, in the end, the military behavior and intelligence services are not very different from each other. It’s an attitude of hunters; they’re observing the prey.
Edgar Ramirez
Sex and beauty are inseparable, like life and consciousness. And the intelligence which goes with sex and beauty, and arises out of sex and beauty, is intuition.
D. H. Lawrence
Many difficulties which nature throws in our way, may be smoothed away by the exercise of intelligence.
Livy
I’ve written a number of books that have to do with the evolution of humans, human intelligence, human emotions.
Carl Sagan
Collecting intelligence information is like trying to drink water out of a fire hydrant. You know, in hindsight It’s great. The problem is there’s a million dots at the time.
Louis Freeh
But it has, in addition, an even more precious quality – a consciousness of the human intelligence, the human spirit and that man is a social creature.
Norman McLaren
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
Aristotle
I think Margaret Thatcher was a superstar in this country, and I think we all felt we needed a superstar to play her, somebody of huge intelligence, passion, and power and warmth.
Phyllida Lloyd
People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the freedom of thought which they seldom use.
Soren Kierkegaard
Every intelligence agency in the world believed that Saddam Hussein had had weapons of mass destruction, precursor chemicals. The inspectors, over a period of ten years, had managed to gain access to much of those precursor chemicals.
John Reid
It is not worth an intelligent man’s time to be in the majority. By definition, there are already enough people to do that.
G. H. Hardy
It is better of course to know useless things than to know nothing.
Tom Stoppard
Sculpture is the art of the intelligence.
Pablo Picasso
To expect the unexpected shows a thoroughly modern intellect.
Oscar Wilde
Improvisation, if you play it at the top of your intelligence, leads to a kind of truth that people find really accessible.
Bonnie Hunt
To have arrived on this earth as a product of a biological accident, only to depart through human arrogance, would be the ultimate irony.
Richard Leakey
Intelligence is playing a more important role in policymaker decisions than I think I’ve ever seen in my time in Congress or before.
Mike Rogers
Men have called me mad; but the question is not yet settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence– whether much that is glorious– whether all that is profound– does not spring from disease of thought– from moods of mind exalted at the expense of the general intellect.
Edgar Allan Poe
There is no reason and no way that a human mind can keep up with an artificial intelligence machine by 2035.
Gray Scott
I want to exude strength and intelligence.
Portia de Rossi
The case for exploiting animals for food, clothing and entertainment often relies on our superior intelligence, language and self-awareness: the rights of the superior being trump those of the inferior.
Michael Shermer
Emotional intelligence is a very important skill set, not just to be happier but also to succeed professionally.
Daniel Lubetzky
Cleverness is serviceable for everything, sufficient for nothing.
Henri Frederic Amiel
Emotional intelligence is your ability to recognize and understand emotions in yourself and others, and your ability to use this awareness to manage your behavior and relationships.
Travis Bradberry
In the great mass of our people there are plenty individuals of intelligence from among whom leadership can be recruited.
Herbert Hoover
The war we are fighting today against terrorism is a multifaceted fight. We have to use every tool in our toolkit to wage this war – diplomacy, finance, intelligence, law enforcement, and of course, military power – and we are developing new tools as we go along.
Richard Armitage
I always felt the ‘X-Men,’ in a subtle way, often touched upon the subject of racism and inequality, and I believe that subject has come up in other titles, too. But we would never pound hard on the subject, which must be handled with care and intelligence.
Stan Lee
By the 2030s, the nonbiological portion of our intelligence will predominate.
Ray Kurzweil
Often the hands will solve a mystery that the intellect has struggled with in vain.
Carl Jung
The world is not limited by IQ. We are all limited by bravery and creativity.
Astro Teller
Let’s say intelligence is your ability to compose poetry, symphonies, do art, math and science. Chimps can’t do any of that, yet we share 99 percent DNA. Everything that we are, that distinguishes us from chimps, emerges from that one-percent difference.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
It’s a poor sort of memory that only works backwards.
Lewis Carroll
Ah! yes, I know: those who see me rarely trust my word: I must look too intelligent to keep it.
Jean-Paul Sartre
There is a lot of strength and intelligence in Hollywood.
Fay Wray
Since 2001, the Patriot Act has provided the means to detect and disrupt terrorist threats against the U.S. Prior to enactment of the law, major legal barriers prevented intelligence, national defense, and law enforcement agencies from working together and sharing information.
Roger Wicker
In view of the fact that God limited the intelligence of man, it seems unfair that He did not also limit his stupidity.
Konrad Adenauer
I wrote ‘The Spy Who Came in from the Cold’ at the age of 30 under intense, unshared personal stress and in extreme privacy. As an intelligence officer in the guise of a junior diplomat at the British Embassy in Bonn, I was a secret to my colleagues, and much of the time to myself.
John le Carre
People have an image of Italians. When I go somewhere in the world, I don’t care where it is, when they look at me it’s not about my intelligence. It’s who can I beat up.
Danny Aiello
Don’t worry about people stealing your ideas. If your ideas are any good, you’ll have to ram them down people’s throats.
Howard Aiken
I think we need to ask serious questions about how we engage militarily, when we engage militarily, and on what basis we engage militarily. What kind of intelligence do we have to justify a military engagement?
Albert Wynn
Give me a smart idiot over a stupid genius any day.
Samuel Goldwyn
The prompt assimilation of that intelligence will be essential if we are to avoid another September 11th.
Adam Schiff
Over the course of two years, we arrived at a point where we began to look at the value added by making information more easily accessible across the intelligence community, both defense and national.
Stephen Cambone
We have artificial intelligence, virtual reality, augmented reality, 3D-printing, robotics and nanotechnology that have changed the face of modern medicine. It is essential for Indian doctors to familiarise themselves with the latest developments to be able to control technology and not the other way around.
Tamilisai Soundararajan
Tis never for their wisdom that one loves the wisest…
Hester Lynch Piozzi
The Clinton White House today said they would start to give national security and intelligence briefings to George Bush. I don’t know how well this is working out. Today after the first one Bush said, ‘I’ve got one question: What color is the red phone?’
Bill Maher
We must respect the other fellow’s religion, but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart.
H. L. Mencken
The whole point of getting things done is knowing what to leave undone.
Oswald Chambers
Intelligence augmentation decreases the need for specialization and increases participatory complexity.
Jamais Cascio
Self-awareness is a trait – or maybe ‘practice’ is the more accurate way to put it – that everyone can always improve at. It is part emotional intelligence, part perceptiveness, part critical thinking. It means knowing your weaknesses, of course, but it also means knowing your strengths and what motivates you.
Neil Blumenthal
A government for the people must depend for its success on the intelligence, the morality, the justice, and the interest of the people themselves.
Grover Cleveland
If the presence of electricity can be made visible in any part of the circuit, I see no reason why intelligence may not be transmitted instantaneously by electricity.
Samuel Morse
When you’re six years old, the word ‘poo’ is the funniest word on God’s earth, but this insults my intelligence.
Jasper Carrott
Intelligence is the effort to do the best you can at your particular job; the quality that gives dignity to that job, whether it happens to be scrubbing a floor or running a corporation.
James Cash Penney
What’s more valuable – intelligence or consciousness?
Yuval Noah Harari
She saw too that man has the power of exceeding himself, of becoming himself more entirely and profoundly than he is, truths which have only recently begun to be seen in Europe and seem even now too great for its common intelligence.
Sri Aurobindo
Could it be that all those reports coming from our own intelligence that Bush ignored was right all along? Could it be that the UN was right all along?
Peter Schuyler
We will strengthen our security by building missile defense, restoring our military might, and standing by and strengthening our intelligence officers.
Mitt Romney
It is the mark of a truly intelligent person to be moved by statistics.
George Bernard Shaw
It takes a lot of things to prove you are smart, but only one thing to prove you are ignorant.
Don Herold
I have great faith in the intelligence of the American viewer and reader to put two and two together and come up with four.
Jim Lehrer
There are two kinds of failures: those who thought and never did, and those who did and never thought
Laurence J. Peter
There is no worse screen to block out the Spirit than confidence in our own intelligence.
John Calvin
The idea of harnessing the intelligence of the readership has been lost in the quest for Facebook likes. For many, readers have become synonymous with hateful commenters. It’s time for a renewed push to realize some of the original dreams of the web.
Nick Denton
For every studen with a spark of brilliance, there are about ten with ignition trouble.
Milton Berle
Our personal intelligence is everlasting and divine.
Russell M. Nelson
For the several thousands of years before they became firefighters and physicians, women were sirens, enchantresses, snares. At times it seems as if female powerlessness is male self-preservation in disguise. And for millennia, this has made for a zero-sum game: A woman’s intelligence was a man’s deception.
Stacy Schiff
My own fault. The equipment had safeties but your primary piece of protective equipment was your brain. There was a presumption that anyone entering this room was intelligent enough to keep away from hot things, sharp things, and things carrying large stores of momentum.
Max Barry
The intellect is not a serious thing, and never has been. It is an instrument on which one plays, that is all.
Oscar Wilde
Crime and punishment grow out of one stem.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.
Michael Jordan
Vladimir: I don’t understand. Estragon: Use your intelligence, can’t you? Vladimir uses his intelligence. Vladimir: (finally) I remain in the dark.
Samuel Beckett
You have to be smart. The easy days are over.
Robert Kiyosaki
Advertising isn’t just the disruption of aesthetics, the insults to your intelligence and the interruption of your train of thought. At every company that sells ads, a significant portion of their engineering team spends their day tuning data mining, writing better code to collect all your personal data.
Jan Koum
Man has made use of his intelligence, he invented stupidity.
Remy de Gourmont
Newt Gingrich has a restless and outsized intelligence that is tragically unleavened by any kind of critical sensibility.
John Podhoretz
Our Soviet espionage efforts had virtually never, or had very seldom, produced any worthwhile political or economic intelligence on the Soviet Union.
Aldrich Ames
I worked with Stanley Kubrick for almost a year back in 1990, trying to develop the screen story for his project ‘Artificial Intelligence,’ which is about a robot boy who wishes to become a real boy, a future scientific fairy tale inspired in the myth of Pinocchio.
Ian Watson
Here’s the thing: I think the media underestimates the intelligence of the moviegoer. We need to be fulfilled. People want to sit down and think, and I try to make people think.
Lee Daniels
The best minds are not in government. If any were, business would steal them away.
Ronald Reagan
I think America has more than enough maturity and intelligence to start exercising its world leadership responsibly.
Cristina Kirchner
In one sense, the Internet is like the discovery of the printing press, only it’s very different. The printing press gave us access to recorded knowledge. The Internet gives us access, not just to knowledge, but to the intelligence contained in people’s crania, access to the intelligence of people on a global basis.
Don Tapscott
Setting an example for your children takes all the fun out of middle age Conditions are never just right. People who delay action until all factors are favorable do nothing.
William Faulkner
I believe this artificial intelligence is going to be our partner. If we misuse it, it will be a risk. If we use it right, it can be our partner.
Masayoshi Son
Human intelligence may not be the best trick nature has to offer.
Bryant H. McGill
The United States, like any great power, is always going to have an intelligence operation, and some electronic surveillance is obligatory in the modern world.
Jeffrey Toobin
I rise today to discuss the National Intelligence Reform bill. I commend my colleagues in both Houses for their hard work in coming to an agreement. As with any conference, each voice is heard, but none can dominate and compromise must be achieved.
Ted Stevens
In America, you have the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act. You’ve got drones now being considered for domestic surveillance. You have the National Security Agency building the world’s giantest spy center.
Heather Brooke
Unintelligent people always look for a scapegoat.
Ernest Bevin
Intelligence is our first line of defense against terrorism, and we must improve the collection capabilities and analysis of intelligence to protect the security of the United States and its allies.
Saxby Chambliss
One cannot escape the feeling that these mathematical formulas have an independent existence and an intelligence of their own, that they are wiser than we are, wiser even than their discoverers.
Heinrich Hertz
A conclusion is simply the place where you got tired of thinking.
Dan Chaon
When hungry, eat your rice; when tired, close your eyes. Fools may laugh at me, but wise men will know what I mean.
Linji Yixuan
An intelligent hell would be better than a stupid paradise.
Victor Hugo
Intelligence flourishes only in the ages when belief withers.
Emil Cioran
They never open their mouths without subtracting from the sum of human knowledge.
Thomas Reed
The color of truth is gray.
Andre Gide
Memory is deceptive because it is colored by today’s events.
Albert Einstein
Always be smarter than the people who hire you.
Lena Horne
AI-assisted driving is a perfect platform for advancing fundamental human-centric artificial intelligence research while also producing practical applications.
Fei-Fei Li
Here, again, as I conceive, gentlemen forget that this government is a republican one, resting exclusively in the intelligence and virtue of the People.
Caleb Cushing
Your intelligence often bears the same relation to your heart as the library of a chateau does to its owner.
Nicolas Chamfort
I feel that I, and the people under my command, tried to use all the traditional methods of recruiting agents which were also used by other intelligence services; adopting also means like pressure, money, sex – but that did not characterize my service.
Markus Wolf

When I went on to write my next book, Working With Emotional Intelligence, I wanted to make a business case that the best performers were those people strong in these skills.
Daniel Goleman
I think that animals aren’t less intelligent than humans, they’re just of a different intelligence. We have five million smell-sensitive cells in our nose, they have two hundred and fifty million – they can smell emotion. They can smell different types of emotion, they just have another type of intelligence.
Mike Mills
But every time our ability to access information and to communicate it to others is improved, in some sense we have achieved an increase over natural intelligence.

Leon Panetta
When you talk to a human in 2035, you’ll be talking to someone that’s a combination of biological and non-biological intelligence.

H. L. Mencken
Brains are an asset, if you hide them.
Mae West
I feel we live in the kind of culture now where you have to be very smart to navigate the right way, and I just don’t have those smarts. I think with age and time it will change, but I can’t obsess about it.

Janis Karpinski
Knowing what is right does not make a sagacious man.
Aristotle
If the elections are a mere fraud, why are terrorists being trained and infiltrated into India at the command of the Inter-Services Intelligence Agency of Pakistan to kill election candidates and to intimidate voters?
Atal Bihari Vajpayee
We are sitting on a cornucopia of knowing that we had no way to access as a democracy. We couldn’t get the democratization of the human capacity before our time.
Jean Houston
Our intentions may be very good, but, because the intelligence is limited, the action may turn out to be a mistake – a mistake, but not necessarily a sin, for sin comes out of a wrong intention.
E. Stanley Jones
To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men that is genius.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Making films take a lot of intelligence and is tough, though achieving Economics honours is tough, too.

There’s three things: there’s masculinity, there’s intelligence, there’s sensitivity. You’ve got to bring those three things to a leading man’s role: masculinity, sensitivity, intelligence. In some people, there’s a little too much in the mix of one or the other.

A. A. Milne
People don’t want to believe that technology is broken. Pharmaceuticals, robotics, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology – all these areas where the progress has been a lot more limited than people think. And the question is why.
Peter Thiel
My forms are not abstractions of things in the real world. They’re also not symbols. I would say that my job is to invent these forms and to put them together in a way that keeps your interest, to give the forms a quirky identity so you can engage with them, so you realize there’s an inner intelligence or logic.
Caio Fonseca
My mind rebels at stagnation. Give me problems, give me work, give me the most abstruse cryptogram, or the most intricate analysis, and I am in my own proper atmosphere. But I abhor the dull routine of existence. I crave for mental exaltation.
Arthur Conan Doyle
