A Quote by Alexander Hamilton on day, effort, exploring, genius, labor, lies, men, mind, people, study, and thought

Men give me credit for some 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 have made is what people are pleased to call the fruit of genius. It is the fruit of labor and thought.

Alexander Hamilton (c.1756 - 1804)

A Quote by Abbé Guillaume Thomas François Raynal on anticipation, chance, exploring, genius, and value

The only difference between a genius and one of common capacity is that the former anticipates and explores what the latter accidentally hits upon; but even the man of genius himself more frequently employs the advantages that chance presents him; it is the lapidary who gives value to the diamond which the peasant has dug up without knowing its value.

Abbe Guillaume Thomas Francois Raynal (1713 - 1796)
