I think I learned discipline on 'Jane Eyre.' Charlotte Bronte's dialogue, the intellectual duel between Rochester and Jane Eyre's character, is so compelling that you didn't have to do much with the placement of cameras.
Reading is an activity subsequent to writing: more resigned, more civil, more intellectual.
Jorge Luis Borges
Education must lead us from the irresponsible opinion to true responsible judgment. It must lead us from chance and arbitrariness to rational clarity and intellectual order. Therefore, let us guide our students over the road of discipline from materials, through function, to creative work.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
I find it extraordinary that anyone would have an intellectual conversion to Roman Catholicism.
Cultures are never merely intellectual constructs. They take form through the collective intelligence and memory, through a commonly held psychology and emotions, through spiritual and artistic communion.
I say that I represent this movement because my intellectual allegiances are clearly European, not African.
J. M. Coetzee

Intellectual property is a key aspect for economic development.
The French Revolution actualised the Enlightenment's greatest intellectual breakthrough: detaching the political from the theocratic.
The bedrock nature of space and time and the unification of cosmos and quantum are surely among science's great 'open frontiers.' These are parts of the intellectual map where we're still groping for the truth - where, in the fashion of ancient cartographers, we must still inscribe 'here be dragons.'
The Americans are completely stupid. The intellectual level in any single European country is higher than in America.

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

What is now called 'green architecture' is an opportunistic caricature of a much deeper consideration of the issues related to sustainability that architecture has been engaged with for many years.
