“To prove to [her friend, Swedish diplomat Count Gyllenborg that she was not superficial, Catherine composed an essay about herself, "so that he would see whether I knew myself or not." The next day, she wrote and handed to Gyllenborg an essay titled 'Portrait of a Fifteen-Year-Old Philosopher.' He was impressed and returned it with a dozen pages of comments, mostly favorable. "I read his remarks again and again, many times [Catherine later recalled in her memoirs]. I impressed them on my consciousness and resolved to follow his advice. In addition, there was something else surprising: one day, while conversing with me, he allowed the following sentence to slip out: 'What a pity that you will marry! I wanted to find out what he meant, but he would not tell me.”

“We proclaim human intelligence to be morally valuable per se because we are human. If we were birds, we would proclaim the ability to fly as morally valuable per se. If we were fish, we would proclaim the ability to live underwater as morally valuable per se. But apart from our obviously self-interested proclamations, there is nothing morally valuable per se about human intelligence.” 

“Wisdom is nothing more than the marriage of intelligence and compassion.
And, as with all good unions, it takes much experience and time to reach its widest potential.
Have you introduced your intellect to your compassion yet? Be careful; lately, intellect has taken to eating in front of the TV and compassion has taken in too many cats.” 
“What are wits for unless a man uses them?” 
“Any woman who is sure of her own wits, is a match, at any time, for a man who is not sure of his own temper.” 

“I don't know what good it is to know so much and be smart as whips and all if it doesn't make you happy.” 
“I'm a pessimist because of intelligence, but an optimist because of will.” 
“Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings.” 

“I think that at that time none of us quite believed in the Time Machine. The fact is, the Time Traveler was one of those men who are too clever to be believed: you never felt that you saw all round him; you always suspected some subtle reserve, some ingenuity in ambush, behind his lucid frankness. Had Filby shown the model and explained the matter in the Time Traveller's words, we should have shown him far less skepticism. For we should have perceived his motives; a pork butcher could understand Filby.” 
“Deep” to me connotes intellectual rigor, not fashionable obscurity or the unnecessarily academic.” 
“Let the love of the moon kiss you good night,
let the morning sun wake you up with loving light.” 
“It was an accident that has endowed man with intelligence. He has made use of it: he invented stupidity.” 
“What sets humans apart from animals is that we have to walk around saying how smart we are, and animals just live their lives.”
