  Genius Quotes
"First and last, what is demanded of genius is love of truth."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"Men give me credit for some genius. All the genius I have lies in this; when I have a subject in hand, I study it profoundly. Day and night it is before me. My mind becomes pervaded with it. Then the effort that I have made is what people are pleased to call the fruit of genius. It is the fruit of labor and thought."
Alexander Hamilton

"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."

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

"There is no genius free from some tincture of madness."
