A Quote by Alexander Hamilton on genius, thought, and labor

Men give me some credit for genius.  All the genius I have lies in this: When I have a subject in hand, I study it profoundly.  Day and night it is before me.  I explore it in all its bearings.  My mind becomes pervaded with it.   Then the effort which I make is what the people call the fruit of genius.  It is the fruit of labor and thought.

Alexander Hamilton (c.1756 - 1804)
