Intellectual Intuition

Famous quotes containing the words intellectual and/or intuition:

    Nothing ... is so ungrateful as a rising generation; yet, if there is any faintest glimmer of light ahead of us in the present, it was kindled by the intellectual fires that burned long before us.
    Ellen Glasgow (1873–1945)

    All appeared new, and strange at first, inexpressibly rare and delightful and beautiful. I was a little stranger, which at my entrance into the world was saluted and surrounded with innumerable joys. My knowledge was divine. I knew by intuition those things which since my Apostasy, I collected again by the highest reason.
    Thomas Traherne (1636–1674)
