US essayist. He is noted for "Literature and Life: Genius," 1871.
Talent is full of thoughts, Genius is thought. Talent is a cistern, Genius a fountain.

Talent jogs to conclusions to which Genius takes giant leaps.
Cheerfulness in most cheerful people is the rich and satisfying result of strenuous discipline.
Genius is not a single power, but a combination of great powers. It reasons, but it is not reasoning; it judges, but it is not judgment. it imagines, but it is not imagination; It is neither, because it is all.
