Napoleon on Genius

  • Imagination rules the world.

  • To do all that one is able to do, is to be a man; to do all that one would like to do, is to be a god.

  • The first method is that of a schemer and leads only to mediocre results; the other method is the path of genius and changes the face of the world.

  • Even when I am gone, I shall remain in people's minds the star of their rights, my name will be the war cry of their efforts, the motto of their hopes.

  • Men of genius are meteors, intended to burn to light their century.

  • Adversity is the midwife of genius.

  • Genius is an infinite capacity for taking pains.

  • The herd seek out the great, not for their sake, but for their influence; and the great welcome them out of vanity or need.
