  1. genius

    Genius is exalted intellectual power capable of operating independently of tuition and training, and marked by an extraordinary faculty for original creation, invention, discovery, expression, etc. Talent is marked mental ability, and in a special sense, a particular and uncommon aptitude for some special mental work or attainment. Genius is higher than talent, more spontaneous, less dependent upon instruction, less amenable to training; talent is largely the capacity to learn, acquire, appropriate, adapt oneself to demand. Yet the genius that has won the largest and most enduring success has been joined with tireless industry and painstaking. Compare synonyms for MIND; POWER.

How to use genius in a sentence?

  1. Epictetus:

    When you close your doors, and make darkness within, remember never to say that you are alone, for you are not alone nay, God is within, and your genius is within. And what need have they of light to see what you are doing

  2. Sidney Madwed:

    The finest gift you can give anyone is encouragement. Yet, almost no one gets the encouragement they need to grow to their full potential. If everyone received the encouragement they need to grow, the genius in most everyone would blossom and the world would produce abundance beyond the wildest dreams. We would have more than one Einstein, Edison, Schweitzer, Mother Theresa, Dr. Salk and other great minds in a century.

  3. Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton:

    Common sense is only a modification of talent. Genius is an exaltation of it. The difference is, therefore, in degree, not nature.

  4. Henry Ward Beecher:

    Genius unexerted is no more genius than a bushel of acorns is a forest of oaks.

  5. Nicholas Negroponte:

    Marvin talked in riddles that made perfect sense, were always profound and often so funny that you would find yourself laughing days later, his genius was so self-evident that it defined 'awesome,'.
