C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Intelligence
 
  To educate the intelligence is to enlarge the horizon of its desires and wants.
Lowell.    
  1
  The intelligent have a right over the ignorant; namely, the right of instructing them.
Emerson.    
  2
  God multiples intelligence, which communicates itself, like fire, ad infinitum. Light a thousand torches at one touch, the flame remains always the same.
Joubert.    
  3
  Every breeze wafts intelligence from country to country, every wave rolls it, all give it forth, and all in turn receive it. There is a vast commerce of ideas, there are marts and exchanges for intellectual discoveries, and a wonderful fellowship of those individual intelligences which make up the mind and opinion of the age.
Daniel Webster.    
  4
  It is no proof of a man’s understanding to be able to confirm whatever he pleases; but to be able to discern that what is true is true, and that what is false is false, this is the mark and character of intelligence.
Swedenborg.
