„The true Christian is not obliged to renounce the things of this world or to lessen his natural abilities.“

—  Edith Stein Jewish-German nun, theologian and philosopher 1891 - 1942

Essays on Woman (1996), Problems of Women's Education (1932)
Kontext: The true Christian is not obliged to renounce the things of this world or to lessen his natural abilities. On the contrary, inasmuch as he incorporates them into his normal life in a disciplined manner, he develops and perfects them; he thereby ennobles the natural life itself, supplying efficacious values to it not only of the spiritual and eternal world but also of the material and earthly world.

„Genius is the ability to look at things simply.“

—  E. Lee Spence German anthropologist, photographer, archaeologist, historian, photojournalist and academic 1947

Full quote: Because of all of the shipwrecks I have discovered, people have called me a genius, but the truth is, finding wrecks isn't all that complicated. Get rid of your perceived notions, narrow everything down to the basic facts, and then just follow basic logic. Don't over complicate matters as, genius is the ability to look at things simply. Remember that and you will find the shipwrecks and their treasure.
from interview of Dr. E. Lee Spence by R. Lunsford, published in Shipwrecks magazine, Volume 1, Issue #4, December, 1989, p. 94

„What students know is no longer the most important measure of an education. The true test is the ability of students and graduates to engage with what they do not know, and to work out a solution.“

—  Aga Khan IV 49th and current Imam of Nizari Ismailism 1936

Kontext: What students know is no longer the most important measure of an education. The true test is the ability of students and graduates to engage with what they do not know, and to work out a solution. They must also be able to reach conclusions that constitute the basis for informed judgements. The ability to make judgements that are grounded in solid information, and employ careful analysis, should be one of the most important goals for any educational endeavor. As students develop this capability, they can begin to grapple with the most important and difficult step: to learn to place such judgements in an ethical framework. For all these reasons, there is no better investment that individuals, parents and the nation can make than an investment in education of the highest possible quality. Such investments are reflected, and endure, in the formation of the kind of social conscience that our world so desperately needs.

„Before I go on with this short history, let me make a general observation – the test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function.“

—  F. Scott Fitzgerald, buch The Crack-Up

Quelle: Quoted, The Crack-Up (1936)
Kontext: Before I go on with this short history, let me make a general observation – the test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function.
One should, for example, be able to see that things are hopeless and yet be determined to make them otherwise. This philosophy fitted on to my early adult life, when I saw the improbable, the implausible, often the "impossible," come true.
