It is not the strengths, but the durations of great sentiments that make great men. -Nietzsche
Genius never desires what does not exist. -Kierkegaard
The first and last thing required of genius is the love of truth. -Goethe
The ideal genius, who has all men within him, has also all their preferences and all their dislikes. There is in him not only the universality of men, but of all nature. He is the man to whom all things tell their secrets, to whom most happens, and whom least escapes. He understands most things, and those most deeply, because he has the greatest number of things to contrast and compare them with. The genius is he who is conscious of most, and of that most acutely. -Weininger
I don't roll on shabbos. -Walter
