#1. Wealth is not often a byproduct of hard work or superior intelligence, but often wealth is a byproduct of a purpose oriented abundant mentality. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Superior Intelligence quotes by Debasish Mridha
#2. My comprehension of God comes from a deeply felt conviction of a superior intelligence that reveals itself in the knowable world. - Author: Albert Einstein
Superior Intelligence quotes by Albert Einstein
#3. The word power typically signifies a capacity for action. The Oxford English Dictionary tells us power lies in an 'ability to do or effect something or anything, or to act upon a person or thing'. The person who has power may influence the material or social environment, generally on the basis of possessing high-tech weapons, money, oil, superior intelligence or large muscles. In war, I am powerful because I can blow up your city walls or drop bombs on your airfields. In the financial world, I am powerful because I can buy up your shares and invade your markets. In boxing, I am ,ore powerful because my punches outwit and exhaust yours. But in love, this issue appears to depend on a far more passive, negative definition; instead of looking at power as a capacity to do something, one may come to think of it as the capacity to do nothing. - Author: Alain De Botton
Superior Intelligence quotes by Alain De Botton
#4. We trust - I'll tell you what we trust that fouls us up, Roy; it's our goddamn superior intelligence! - Author: Philip K. Dick
Superior Intelligence quotes by Philip K. Dick
#5. Learning to be flexible in values takes a very long time ... Of course I felt a little uncomfortable during questioning the concept of God, but then reading about the history and evolution of Gods. There were many different Gods: the God of war, the God of peace, the God of love, which was more like the people that invented them. They behaved, they got angry, they made sacrifices, they created floods when they didn't like the way things are going. This didn't come through as superior intelligence. - Author: Jacque Fresco
Superior Intelligence quotes by Jacque Fresco
#6. I'm just not the kind of girl guys think about asking out. Well, maybe they think about it, but they always seem to manage to talk themselves out of it. I don't know if it's because they think I might ram a fist down their throats if they try anything, or if it's just because they are intimidated by my superior intelligence and good looks (ha ha). In the end, they just aren't interested. - Author: Meg Cabot
Superior Intelligence quotes by Meg Cabot
#7. Although other animals cannot reason nor speak the way humans do, this does not give us the right to do with them as we like. Even though our supposed possession of a soul and superior intelligence are used to create an arbitrary dividing line over rights, the fact remains that all animals have the capacity to experience pain and suffering, and in suffering they are our equals. - Author: Nathaniel Altman
Superior Intelligence quotes by Nathaniel Altman
#8. Sometimes you're sure dogs have some secret, superior intelligence, and other times you know they're only their simple, goofy selves. - Author: Deb Caletti
Superior Intelligence quotes by Deb Caletti
#9. I have discovered that some people are wealthier than others not because of their superior intelligence but because of their abundant mindset. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Superior Intelligence quotes by Debasish Mridha
#10. 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. - Author: Michael Shermer
Superior Intelligence quotes by Michael Shermer
#11. White Fang was glad to acknowledge his lordship, but it was lordship based upon superior intelligence and brute strength ... There were deeps in his nature which had never been sounded. A kind word, a caressing touch of the hand, on the part of Gray Beaver, might have sounded these deeps; but Gray Beaver did not caress nor speak kind words. It was not his way. - Author: Jack London
Superior Intelligence quotes by Jack London
#12. This sense of wonder leads most scientists to a Superior Being - der Alte, the Old One, as Einstein affectionately called the Deity - a Superior Intelligence, the Lord of all Creation and Natural Law. - Author: Abdus Salam
Superior Intelligence quotes by Abdus Salam
#13. Those mothers with hereditary large pelvises were able to bear large-brained babies who because of their superior intelligence were able to compete successfully in adulthood with the smaller-brained offspring of mothers with smaller pelvises. - Author: Carl Sagan
Superior Intelligence quotes by Carl Sagan
#14. I figure I'll just keep on going the way I am until something starts making sense."
"What if nothing ever does?"
"I guess if that happens, I'll start hoping all the God freaks are right, and there's some superior intelligence up there treating us all like laboratory rats. - Author: Mira Grant
Superior Intelligence quotes by Mira Grant
#15. To discover the rules of society that are best suited to nations, there would need to exist a superior intelligence, who could understand the passions of men without feeling any of them, who had no affinity with our nature but knew it to the full, whose happiness was independent of ours, but who would nevertheless make our happiness his concern, who would be content to wait in the fullness of time for a distant glory, and to labour in one age to enjoy the fruits in another. Gods would be needed to give men laws. - Author: Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Superior Intelligence quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#16. Henry Kissinger is possessed of a truly superior intelligence, in addition to which he has two qualities which, unfortunately, many great men lack: he is able to listen and he has a very subtle sense of humour. - Author: Mohammed Reza Pahlavi
Superior Intelligence quotes by Mohammed Reza Pahlavi
#17. Ingenuity is often misunderstood. It is not a matter of superior intelligence but of character. It demands more than anything a willingness to recognize failure, to not paper over the cracks, and to change. It arises from deliberate, even obsessive, reflection on failure and a constant searching for new solutions. - Author: Atul Gawande
Superior Intelligence quotes by Atul Gawande
#18. At least, if your will is as you say, it proves definitively that I couldn't be the murderer." Nick put on an exaggerated expression of relief. "I was beginning to worry."
"I'm happy to set your mind at ease, Nick, old boy, but I must admit I've long held you above suspicion in this case."
"Really?"
"Oh, by all means. Obviously our murderer is of superior intelligence and nerve. I ruled you out from the start. - Author: Julianna Deering
Superior Intelligence quotes by Julianna Deering
#19. No man of genuinely superior intelligence has ever been an actor. Even supposing a young man of appreciable mental powers to be lured upon the stage, as philosophers are occasionally lured into bordellos, his mind would be inevitably and almost immediately destroyed by the gaudy nonsense issuing from his mouth every night. - Author: H.L. Mencken
Superior Intelligence quotes by H.L. Mencken
#20. Water is one of the basic needs of survival of mankind and water can destroy it, too. That is the power of NATURE. But there is an even more powerful dimension of NATURE which is a blessing to humans; courage, intelligence, compassion and the power to stand again. - Author: Vikas Khanna
Superior Intelligence quotes by Vikas Khanna
#21. There is no need for intelligence of few man if everybody else is mad. - Author: Omer Seyfettin
Superior Intelligence quotes by Omer Seyfettin
#22. Only a fool can be happy. For happiness consists of two contradictory elements: contentment and pleasure. Enjoy pleasure and you have no contentment; be content and you have no pleasure. For this reason happiness is conceivable only for those who enjoy themselves without thinking that they will always want more and thus be discontented, or for those who are content without thinking that they have no pleasure. Whoever reflects can never be happy, unless he is a fanatic and thus blinded ... thus exercising control over his intelligence with his feelings, instead of the other way round - Author: Marcellus Emants
Superior Intelligence quotes by Marcellus Emants
#23. A smart man only tells half of what he thinks. - Author: Maya Angelou
Superior Intelligence quotes by Maya Angelou
#24. Any time someone gives you drugs, the purpose is to subdue. Always. Whether it is from a dealer, a friend, your mother/brother/sister/son, or your government
especially your government
the intention is to subdue, and always to feed another motive. Why?
Because in getting high, your power and your intellect are blunted. Can the motive ever be in your best interests? Governments notoriously use sex, drink, and drugs to subdue their people. Notoriously. And we're falling for it. - Author: Northern Adams
Superior Intelligence quotes by Northern Adams
#25. The intelligence that shaped the universe, shaped you. There is an inner part of us, for ever obscured, for ever mysterious, which is most alive during the process of composition. And that inner part, that inner glow, is timeless, and it functions beyond time. It drinks from deep waters. It has the stillness and the dance and the radiance of firmament. When one is most absorbed in the act of creation one almost feels that one is wandering in the great corridors of all minds. Creativity makes us part of it all. - Author: Ben Okri
Superior Intelligence quotes by Ben Okri
#26. With my love, I am touching your heart, even though we are a thousand miles apart. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Superior Intelligence quotes by Debasish Mridha
#27. The superior man is easy to serve, but difficult to please ... The inferior man is difficult to serve, but easy to please. - Author: Confucius
Superior Intelligence quotes by Confucius
#28. The idea of the freedom of the human will has found enthusiastic supporters and stubborn opponents in plenty. There are those who, in their moral fervor, label anyone a man of limited intelligence who can deny so patent a fact as freedom. Opposed to them are others who regard it as the acme of unscientific thinking for anyone to believe that the uniformity of natural law is broken in the sphere of human action and thinking. One and the same thing is thus proclaimed, now as the most precious possession of humanity, now as its most fatal illusion. - Author: Rudolf Steiner
Superior Intelligence quotes by Rudolf Steiner
#29. I have this assemblage of small facts, which looks like intelligence but no real depth of knowledge about anything. That's why I'm an actor. - Author: Wayne Knight
Superior Intelligence quotes by Wayne Knight
#30. The claim that some races were innately superior to others was later championed by Hitler, and so if Hitler was a nativist, then all nativists were Nazis. (That conclusion is illogical, but it makes sense emotionally if you dislike nativism.)13 The - Author: Jonathan Haidt
Superior Intelligence quotes by Jonathan Haidt
#31. Let's forget the past and keep in mind the future, but enjoy the present moment. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Superior Intelligence quotes by Debasish Mridha
#32. Americans ... want leaders who share their values, understand their needs, and respect their intelligence. - Author: Tom Vilsack
Superior Intelligence quotes by Tom Vilsack
#33. While we pay lip service to the virtues of reading, the truth is that there is still in our culture something that suspects those who read too much, whatever reading too much means, of being lazy, aimless dreamers, people who need to grow up and come outside to where real life is, who think themselves superior in their separateness. - Author: Anna Quindlen
Superior Intelligence quotes by Anna Quindlen
#34. Intelligence is one of the greatest human gifts. But all too often a search for knowledge drives out the search for love. This is something else I've discovered for myself very recently. I present it to you as a hypothesis: Intelligence without the ability to give and receive affection leads to mental and moral breakdown, to neurosis, and possibly even psychosis. And I say that the mind absorbed in and involved in itself as a self-centered end, to the exclusion of human relationships, can only lead to violence and pain. - Author: Daniel Keyes
Superior Intelligence quotes by Daniel Keyes
#35. Intelligence starts to get pretty dull if it's not coupled with kindness. - Author: Carmen Ejogo
Superior Intelligence quotes by Carmen Ejogo
#36. The world has been changing even faster as people, devices and information are increasingly connected to each other. Computational power is growing and quantum computing is quickly being realised. This will revolutionise artificial intelligence with exponentially faster speeds. It will advance encryption. Quantum computers will change everything, even human biology. There is already one technique to edit DNA precisely, called CRISPR. The basis of this genome-editing technology is a bacterial defence system. It can accurately target and edit stretches of genetic code. The best intention of genetic manipulation is that modifying genes would allow scientists to treat genetic causes of disease by correcting gene mutations. There are, however, less noble possibilities for manipulating DNA. How far we can go with genetic engineering will become an increasingly urgent question. We can't see the possibilities of curing motor neurone diseases - like my ALS - without also glimpsing its dangers.
Intelligence is characterised as the ability to adapt to change. Human intelligence is the result of generations of natural selection of those with the ability to adapt to changed circumstances. We must not fear change. We need to make it work to our advantage.
We all have a role to play in making sure that we, and the next generation, have not just the opportunity but the determination to engage fully with the study of science at an early level, so that we can go on to fulfil our pote - Author: Stephen Hawking
Superior Intelligence quotes by Stephen Hawking
#37. Creativity comes from curious, intuitive, persistent action. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Superior Intelligence quotes by Debasish Mridha
#38. The truth is: I did want to be my dad's poem. I wanted to be his drawing, his novella, his most refined work of art. I wanted him to shape me with his love and intelligence. I wanted him to edit out my mistakes and many indulgences, with a sharp red pencil or a clean eraser. - Author: Alysia Abbott
Superior Intelligence quotes by Alysia Abbott
#39. In the economic sphere too, the ability to hold a hammer or press a button is becoming less valuable than before. In the past, there were many things only humans could do. But now robots and computers are catching up, and may soon outperform humans in most tasks. True, computers function very differently from humans, and it seems unlikely that computers will become humanlike any time soon. In particular, it doesn't seem that computers are about to gain consciousness, and to start experiencing emotions and sensations. Over the last decades there has been an immense advance in computer intelligence, but there has been exactly zero advance in computer consciousness. As far as we know, computers in 2016 are no more conscious than their prototypes in the 1950s. However, we are on the brink of a momentous revolution. Humans are in danger of losing their value, because intelligence is decoupling from consciousness.
Until today, high intelligence always went hand in hand with a developed consciousness. Only conscious beings could perform tasks that required a lot of intelligence, such as playing chess, driving cars, diagnosing diseases or identifying terrorists. However, we are now developing new types of non-conscious intelligence that can perform such tasks far better than humans. For all these tasks are based on pattern recognition, and non-conscious algorithms may soon excel human consciousness in recognising patterns. This raises a novel question: which of the two is really - Author: Yuval Noah Harari
Superior Intelligence quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#40. They would be the shepherds over us, their sheep. Certainly such an arrangement presupposes that they are naturally superior to the rest of us. And certainly we are fully justified in demanding from the legislators and organizers proof of this natural superiority. - Author: Frederic Bastiat
Superior Intelligence quotes by Frederic Bastiat
#41. Most of you will probably never really discover anything. You may not contribute anything to the great equations that describe the universe to the world. But you will have the good fortune of encountering people of exceptional intelligence. People who are much smarter than you. Never get in their way, never group together in disgruntled circles and play games. Respect talent, real talent. Worship it. Clever people will always be disliked. Don't exploit that to crawl your way to the top. By the laws of probability most of you are mediocre. Accept it. The tragedy of mediocrity is that even mediocre people shake their heads and mull over how "standards are falling". So don't mull. Just know when you've to get out of the way. Most of you will be sideshows, extras in the grand unfolding of truth. That's all right. Once you accept that and let the best brains do their jobs, you will have done your service to science and mankind. - Author: Manu Joseph
Superior Intelligence quotes by Manu Joseph
#42. To find the inner peace be utmost honest to yourself. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Superior Intelligence quotes by Debasish Mridha
#43. Logical activity is not the whole of intelligence. One can be intelligent without being particularly logical. - Author: Jean Piaget
Superior Intelligence quotes by Jean Piaget
#44. When you're calling for God,
whom you are calling?
When you trying to find the God
whom you're looking for?
When you're thinking about God
whom you're thinking of?
When you're praying for God,
for whom are you praying for?
You're calling for your true self.
You're looking for your true self.
You're thinking of your true self
and you're praying to you to reveal your true self.
You're the truth, you're the God, you're eternal. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Superior Intelligence quotes by Debasish Mridha
#45. When we are looking for opportunity, we should keep in mind that life itself is an opportunity. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Superior Intelligence quotes by Debasish Mridha
#46. To think better, to think like the best humans, we are probably going to have to learn again to judge a person's intelligence, not by the ability to recite facts, but by the good order or harmoniousness of his or her surroundings. We must suspect that any statistical justification of ugliness and violence is a revelation of stupidity. (pg.192-193, People, Land, and Community) - Author: Wendell Berry
Superior Intelligence quotes by Wendell Berry
#47. When there is nonjudgmental love then there is no giving up. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Superior Intelligence quotes by Debasish Mridha
#48. Whenever you feel superior or inferior to anyone, that's the ego in you. - Author: Eckhart Tolle
Superior Intelligence quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#49. But our superiority is not the kind that many dreamers have imagined we have. The dreamer isn't superior to the active man because dreaming is superior to reality. The dreamer's superiority is due to the fact that dreaming is much more practical than living, and the dreamer gets far greater and more varied pleasure out of life than the man of action. In other and plainer words, the dreamer is the true man of action. - Author: Fernando Pessoa
Superior Intelligence quotes by Fernando Pessoa
#50. The true desire and secret of existence is to live in peace, love, and happiness. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Superior Intelligence quotes by Debasish Mridha
#51. It would never do for me to lose my wits in the presence of a man who had none too many of his own. - Author: Anna Katharine Green
Superior Intelligence quotes by Anna Katharine Green
#52. No woman ought to pretend she's intelligent. And if she is she ought to have the intelligence to pretend she isn't. - Author: Edna Ferber
Superior Intelligence quotes by Edna Ferber
#53. Life is a one way journey,
So don't waste your moment.
Enjoy the beauty and scenery,
fill your heart with love and joyment.
Life is a one way journey.
Always we are getting ready,
not for the game of tourney,
But for miracles and joy of heady.
Life is a one way journey.
We always hope and dream to live,
but not on a beautiful gurney,
but with vigor and beauty to thrive. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Superior Intelligence quotes by Debasish Mridha
#54. Mind does dominate body. We are superior to the house in which we dwell. - Author: Margaret Elizabeth Sangster
Superior Intelligence quotes by Margaret Elizabeth Sangster
#55. Before leaving the world, leave a profound positive mark of love upon the world. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Superior Intelligence quotes by Debasish Mridha
#56. [Seeing clearly] is not so difficult to achieve, and yet it is rather unusual. To my mind, it is less a question of an exalted or shrewd intelligence than of good sense, goodwill and a certain sort of courage to enable one to rise above both the pressures of one's environment and the natural inclination to close one's eyes to facts, a temptation that arises from our immediate interests and from the fear which problems inspire in us. A French essayist has said: 'What is terrible when you seek the truth, is that you find it.' You find it, and then you are no longer free to follow the biases of your personal circle, or to accept fashionable cliches. - Author: Victor Serge
