We can applaud the state lottery as a public subsidy of intelligence, for it yields public income that is calculated to lighten the tax burden of us prudent abstainers at the expense of the benighted masses of wishful thinkers.willard van orman quine
Everything which is, is thought, but not conscious and individual thought. The human intelligence is but the consciousness of being. It is what I have formulated before: Everything is a symbol of a symbol, and a symbol of what? of mind.henri-frédéric amiel
For months the life of the little band went on much as it had before, except that Tarzan's greater intelligence and his ability as a hunter were the means of providing for them more bountifully than ever before. Most of them, therefore, were more than content with the change in rulers.Edgar Rice Burroughs
A case could be made for Mr. Ellis as a covert moralist and closet sentimentalist, the best kind, the kind who leaves you space in which to respond as your predispositions nudge you, whether as a commissar or hand-wringer or, like me, as an admirer of his intelligence and craft.bret easton ellis

Either... the moving intelligences of the planets are weakest in those that are farthest from the sun, or... there is one moving intelligence in the sun, the common center, forcing them all round, but those most violently which are nearest, and that it languishes in some sort and grows weaker at the most distant, because of the remoteness and the attenuation of the virtue.johannes kepler
Collective intelligence. Think of how Wikipedia works, how Amazon harnesses user annotation on its site, the way photo-sharing sites like Flickr are bleeding out into other applications... We're entering an era in which software learns from its users and all of the users are connected.tim o'reilly

Success in investing doesn't correlate with I.Q. once you're above the level of 25. Once you have ordinary intelligence, what you need is the temperament to control the urges that get other people into trouble in investing.warren buffett
To oscillate between drill exercises that strive to attain efficiency in outward doing without the use of intelligence, and an accumulation of knowledge that is supposed to be an ultimate end in itself, means that education accepts the present social conditions as final, and thereby takes upon itself the responsibility for perpetuating them. A reorganization of education so that learning takes place in connection with the intelligent carrying forward of purposeful activities is a slow work. It can be accomplished only piecemeal, a step at a time.john dewey
Let an ultraintelligent machine be defined as a machine that can far surpass all the intellectual activities of any man however clever. Since the design of machines is one of these intellectual activities, an ultraintelligent machine could design even better machines; there would then unquestionably be an 'intelligence explosion,' and the intelligence of man would be left far behind. Thus the first ultraintelligent machine is the last invention that man need ever make.i. j. good

The intelligence suffers today automatically in consequence of the attack on all authority , advantage, or privilege . These things are not done away with, it is needless to say, but numerous scapegoats are made of the less politically powerful, to satisfy the egalitarian rage awakened.Wyndham Lewis, in Wyndham Lewis: Radical for the Permanent Things
I am sure that in Canada the people appreciate this principle, and the general intelligence which prevails over that country is such that I am sure there is no danger of a reactionary policy ever finding a response in the hearts of any considerable number of our people.Speech in Dundee, Scotland (July 13, 1875)
Children are remarkable for their intelligence and ardor , for their curiosity, their intolerance of shams , the clarity and ruthlessness of their vision .Aldous Huxley, in Fanatically Formative: Successful Learning During the Crucial K?3 Years, SAGE, 12-Jun-2012, p.113
intelligence appears to be the thing that enables a man to get along without education . Education enables a man to get along without the use of his intelligence.Albert Edward Wiggam, as quoted in Philippine Almanac (1986), p. 344
[So], along side the corpus mundi , or body , the aspect of material form, the physical world of matter we experience with our senses, traditional lore places the spiritual mundi [soul], the essential life-energy of the world, and the anima mundi , the soul of the world, its consciousness and innate intelligence .Peter Abelard, in Desiring Discourse: The Literature of Love, Ovid Through Chaucer, p.27
Every time the Secretary of Defense tries to get a hand on his many intelligence programs, we hear warnings about the dire consequences to liberty. When you look behind those warnings, what you really see is the CIA trying to preserve its perks.Mark Riebling, "Rumsfeld's New Spy Unit," Broadcast on National Public Radio (October 31, 2002).

The definitions of humanism are many, but let us here take it to be the attitude of those men who think it an advantage to live in society , and, at that, in a complex and highly developed society, and who believe that man fulfills his nature and reaches his proper stature in this circumstance. The personal virtues which humanism cherishes are intelligence , amenity, and tolerance ; the particular courage it asks for is that which is exercised in the support of these virtues. The qualities of intelligence which it chiefly prizes are modulation and flexibility.Lionel Trilling, in his "Introduction" to The Portable Matthew Arnold (1949)
If we suppose a sufficient righteousness and intelligence in men to produce presently, from the tremendous lessons of history, an effective will for a world peace that is to say, an effective will for a world law under a world government for in no other fashion is a secure world peace conceivable in what manner may we expect things to move towards this end?… It is an educational task, and its very essence is to bring to the minds of all men everywhere, as a necessary basis for world cooperation, a new telling and interpretation, a common interpretation, of history.H. G. Wells, Outline of History, Chapter XLI. Par. 2; reported in Hoyt's New Cyclopedia Of Practical Quotations (1922), p. 911-17.
