intellect

A Quote by Jane Roberts on intellect, reasoning, ratinal thought, magical thinking, support, understanding, and knowledge

SETH said:  Now when you understand that intellectually, then the intellect can take for granted that its own information is not all the information you possess.  It can realize that its own knowledge  represents the tip of the iceberg.  As you apply that realization to your life you begin to realize furthermore that in practical terms you are indeed supported by a greater body of knowledge than you consciously realize, and by the magical, spontaneous fountain of action that forms your existence.  The intellect can then realize that it does not have to go it all alone.  Everything does not have to be reasoned out, even to be understood.

A Quote by Michio Kaku on meaning and intellect

Some people seek meaning in life through personal gain, through personal relationship, or through personal experiences. However, it seems to me that being blessed with the intellect to divine the ultimate secrets of nature gives meaning enough to life.

A Quote by Nathaniel Hawthorne on brotherhood, god, intellect, and sin

"What is the Unpardonable Sin?" asked the lime-burner; and then he shrank farther from his companion, trembling lest his question should be answered.

"It is a sin that grew within my own breast," replied Ethan Brand, standing erect, with a pride that distinguishes all enthusiasts of his stamp.  "A sin that grew nowhere else!  The sin of an intellect that triumphed over the sense of brotherhood with man and reverence for God, and sacrificed everything to its own mighty claims!"

Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804 - 1864)

Wherever there is a heart and an intellect, the diseases of the physical frame are tinged with the peculiarities of these.
