Intellect Quotations

Most people say that it is the intellect which makes a great scientist. They are wrong: it is character.
Albert Einstein

Your intellect may be confused, but your emotions will never lie to you.
Roger Ebert

Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated; it satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect. It is at the same time rewarding and maddening - and it is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented.
Arnold Palmer

If we listened to our intellect, we'd never have a love affair. We'd never have a friendship. We'd never go into business, because we'd be cynical. Well, that's nonsense. You've got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down.
Ray Bradbury

Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
