„Intelligence alone doesn't mean a damned thing.“

—  Daniel Keyes, buch Flowers for Algernon

Flowers for Algernon (1966)
Kontext: Intelligence alone doesn't mean a damned thing. Here in your university, intelligence, education, knowledge, have all become great idols. But I know now there's one thing you've all overlooked: intelligence and education that hasn't been tempered by human affection isn't worth a damn.

„It's amazing the way things, apparently disconnected, hang together.“

—  Daniel Keyes, buch Flowers for Algernon

Flowers for Algernon (1966)
Kontext: My most absorbing interests at the present time are etymologies of ancient languages, the newer works on the calculus of variations, and Hindu history. It's amazing the way things, apparently disconnected, hang together.

„Intelligence without the ability to give and receive affection leads to mental and moral breakdown, to neurosis, and possibly even psychosis.“

—  Daniel Keyes, buch Flowers for Algernon

Flowers for Algernon (1966)
Kontext: Don't misunderstand me," I said. "Intelligence is one of the greatest human gifts. But all too often a search for knowledge drives out the search for love. This is something else I've discovered for myself very recently. I present it to you as a hypothesis: Intelligence without the ability to give and receive affection leads to mental and moral breakdown, to neurosis, and possibly even psychosis. And I say that the mind absorbed in and involved in itself as a self-centered end, to the exclusion of human relationships, can only lead to violence and pain.

„I am not only a thing, but also a way of being“

—  Daniel Keyes, buch Flowers for Algernon

Flowers for Algernon (1966)
Kontext: The answer can't be found in books — or be solved by bringing it to other people. Not unless you want to remain a child all your life. You've got to find the answer inside you — feel the right thing to do.
