Intelligence Quotes


“Intelligence is not to make no mistakes, but quickly to see how to make them good.” German playwright and poet Bertolt Brecht really hit the nail on the head there when it comes to intelligence quotes. Intelligence isn’t about being smarter than anyone else, it’s really all about your capacity to learn, particularly from your mistakes. Intelligence quotes allow us to not be so hard on ourselves, realizing that we aren’t perfect, even if we can claim to be highly intelligent. And as history has shown, even the most intelligent people in history have made some pretty dumb mistakes. Reference.com Definition of Intelligence
