~~~~~~~

Who in the same given time can produce more than many others, has vigor; who can produce more and better, has talents; who can produce what none else can, has genius.

~~~~~~~

Wit is the god of moments, but Genius is the god of ages.

~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~

Without a genius, learning soars in vain; And, without learning, genius sinks again; Their force united; crowns the sprightly reign.

~~~~~~~
