On Genius

" Men give me credit for some genius. All the genius I have is this: when I have a subject in mind, I study it profoundly. Day and night it is before me. My mind becomes pervaded with it . . the effort which I have made is what people are pleased to call genius. It is the fruit of labor and thought. "
Alexander Hamilton, 1775-1804 American Statesman
