On Genius
by Patricia Pollaco
Excerpted from: The Junkyard Wonders


Genius is neither learned nor acquired.
It is knowing without experience.
It is risking without fear of failure.
It is perception without touch.
It is understanding without research.
It is certainty without proof.
It is ability without practice
It is invention without limitations.
It is imagination without boundaries.
It is creativity without restraints.
It is ... extraordinary intelligence.
