Cesare Lombroso
The appearance of a single great genius is more than equivalent to the birth of a hundred mediocrities.
Lombroso quotes
"Lawsuit mania"... a continual craving to go to law against others, while considering themselves the injured party.
Unfortunately, goodness and honor are rather the exception than the rule among exceptional men, not to speak of geniuses.

Lombroso Cesare quotes
Klopstock was questioned regarding the meaningof a passage in his poem. He replied, "God and I both knew what it meant once; now God alone knows."
Lombroso Cesare
The ignorant man always adores what he cannot understand.
Cesare Lombroso quotes
Good sense travels on the well-worn paths; genius, never. And that is why the crowd, not altogether without reason, is so ready to treat great men as lunatics.
Cesare Lombroso
Genius is one of the many forms of insanity.
