9. Bernard Lonergan Author of Insight: A Study of Human Understanding “As everybody schoolboy knows, a circle is a locus of co-planar points equidistant from a centre. What every schoolboy does not know is the difference between repeating that definition, as a parrot might, and uttering it intelligently.”

11. Bernard Lonergan Author of Insight: A Study of Human Understanding “Great problems are solved by being broken down into little problems. The strokes of genius are but the outcome of a continuous habit of inquiry that grasps clearly and distinctly all that is involved in the simple things that anyone can understand.”

13. Ned Herrmann Author of The Creative Brain “The brain, I learned, is specialized—not just physically, but mentally as well. Its specialized modes can be organized into four separate and distinct quadrants, each with its own language, perception, values, gifts, and ways of knowing and being. We are all unique composites of those differing modes according to our particular mix of mental preferences and avoidances.”
