A lot of people look down on people who are successful, but Conor McGregor is successful because he runs his mouth and he knows how to put on a show. I mean, look at his pressconferences.

What if life is not carbon-based? Can life exist as a gas or a plasma? Could planets or stars in some sense be alive? What about an interstellar cloud? Could life exist on such a small or large scale, or move so fast or so slowly that we wouldn’t recognize it? Could you have an intelligent virus?
I think people love the character of Iris West. I think a lot of fans are also excited that Iris West is now African-American. They want to see her be strong and intelligent and a love interest – and so people come out in full force to defend that and honor that. And I think that’s cool.

Neanderthals might think differently than we do. They could even be more intelligent than us. When the time comes to deal with an epidemic or getting off the planet, it’s conceivable that their way of thinking could be beneficial.

For me, the game would be to assume a very intelligent reader who can extrapolate a lot from a little. And that’s become my definition of art; to get that pitch just right, where I can put a hint on page three, and the reader’s ears go up a bit, as opposed to dropping it all on the first page.

I am fortunate in having this bone structure because I have a tremendouslyprominenttemple. I like to think that’s it’s because I’m so intelligent. People say: ‘You haven’t got a line on your forehead.’ I do. It’s just the bones are holding them all out, and the cheekbones are holding my face up.

I just want to say what a tremendous honor it is to be on a show like ‘The Newsroom.’ I’ve always dreamed of being on something this important and being on a show that really resonates with a lot of very, very intelligent people in the world, and I’ve gained such a loyal fan base.
Both my mom and my dad have always included me in intelligent conversations about people, about characters, about how people work. My dad and my mom still read all scripts that I find interesting. I send them an e-mail, and I’m like, ‘Okay, I have my eye on this,’ or whatever.
Minimalism seems closest to the sophisticated storytelling of movies. Movies have really educated contemporaryaudiences to be the most intelligent, sophisticated audiences in history.

Proust is a hero of mine. I read ‘A la recherche’ in one go, and I’m a very slow reader. It had an astonishingimpact, reading it on my own and being my main company. I think Proust is the most intelligent person to ever have written a novel.
Edward St Aubyn

It would have been more comfortable for us as a society if Anita Hill wasn’t as intelligent, poised, and credible as she was.
We’ve no use for intellectuals in this outfit. What we need is chimpanzees. Let me give you a word of advice: never say a word to us about being intelligent. We will think for you, my friend. Don’t forget it.
Women are very intelligent and not appreciated. We try to pretend that we are not clever, and it’s such a pity that we can’t show how clever we are.
In some instances, I don’t care what people think. In other instances, I do – especially because of the stereotype. People take a look at me and say, ‘She’s cute. She’s blond. She’s an actress. She’s a bimbo.’ You know? So I take great pains to show I’m intelligent, to show I’m not a twinkie.

Our consciousness, like the air we breathe or like the passage of time, is central to our existence as intelligent beings.
I’ve always scribbled, and I still do it. I’ve written numerous scripts for films for which I think I’d be perfect as the complex, intelligent and, yes, modern heroine. Embarrassingly bad, all of them. I’ve had to come to terms with the fact that I’m not a writer.
Ranbir is a very intelligent actor and he is one of my favorite actor in the present generation. He is very good and he is very intense. He is doing a wonderful job and his choice of films is very good.

For me personally, I just don’t have anything to prove anymore. I know exactly who I am, I know that I’m intelligent and acting dumb or acting like whatever. If that’s funny to me because I know it’s false then so be it.
I think very early on, my sisters and I understood the value of nature and what it can do for us, and that we are part of nature. Even if we are all seemingly intelligent beings and we’re at the top of the foodchain, that doesn’t mean that we have to remove ourselves from nature.
Being smarter gives you a tailwind throughout life. People who are more intelligent earn more, live longer, get divorced less, are less likely to get addicted to alcohol and tobacco, and their children live longer.

I’ve worked with multiple directors throughout the ‘Saw’ series with a lot of conversations as they bring their particular installment to the screen.

Even good opinions are worth very little unless we hold them in the broad, intelligent, and spacious way.

If we accept being talked to any kind of a way, then we are telling ourselves we are not quite worth the best. And if we have the effrontery to talk to anybody with less than courtesy, we tell ourselves and the world we are not very intelligent.
Everything is not serious. If you don’t like what I’m saying, change the channel – don’t look at me, don’t buy a ticket. You either get it or you don’t, and it’s fascinating because it’s usually intelligent people with a sense of humor who get it.
I’m not intelligent. I’m not arrogant. I’m just like the people who read my books. I used to have a jazzclub, and I made the cocktails and I made the sandwiches. I didn’t want to become a writer – it just happened.
I was always impressed by Betty Ford and what she went through and how full of integrity she was, and how brave. I think Mrs. Reagan was a role model of my mother’s generation, intelligent, very supportive of her husband. I am very different from my mom, but I admired her devotion.
My favourite feature is my hair. It has always made me look different. It was so red when I was born that my mother thought I had blood on my head.

Nowadays there’s the taping of the boobs. The tanning has become pretty intense with these young ladies. The hair extensions have become very serious… But I hate it when pageant girls get a bad rap, because they really are intelligent women. They’re ambitious women; they’re driven; they’re educated.
Luck, bad if not good, will always be with us. But it has a way of favoring the intelligent and showing its back to the stupid.
As a player, you get to the stage where you realise that you are not 25 anymore – and can’t play the way you used to. The intelligent players adapt – and Steven Gerrard has the ability to do that. He is an excellent passer of the ball, possesses an intelligent football brain, and has great vision.
The sun doesn’t always shine; the wind doesn’t always blow. This is why, if we want to rely on renewables, we need intelligent systems that integrate and coordinate different sources of energy at scale so that when one is scarce or unavailable, the others can automaticallycompensate.
I think Douglas was a real one-off. He was so clever and so intelligent and so well read in real science that he could make science fiction work as well as it did. And just such fun to have around, he was just such a lovely man.
I think what’s really amazing is that given the scale of the web and getting the compute power we have today, we’re starting to see things that appear intelligent but actually aren’t semantically intelligent.

I’m a practical person. Most fashion people live in the clouds, and they’re full of it. I live like a human being – or, I try to – and I have to be intelligent; I have to be practical. I’m a great believer in common sense, and the older I get, I see that common sense is not that common.
My family is certainly very vocal. They’re very Italian. A lot of our holidays end with people screaming at each other across the room. And everyone’s very opinionated and intelligent. A lot of my aunts and uncles are wildly educated, and their opinions reflect that. We’re all very liberal.
We are eternal beings. We lived as intelligent spirits before this mortal life. We are now living part of eternity. Our mortal birth was not the beginning; death, which faces all of us, is not the end.

I’m not much for cats. I’m terrified of mice. I’ve worked a lot with elephants, and they are extremely intelligent and sensitive, and thankfully, they seem to like me. You never want to get on the bad side of an elephant. And never trust a chimp.
Deep down, creationists realize they will never win factual arguments with science. This is why they have construed their own science-like universe, known as Intelligent Design, and eagerlyjump on every tidbit of information that seems to go their way.

My mom was in education, and I remember reading in one of her books about multiple intelligences – this whole theory about how there are all these different ways you can be intelligent, like eight or 10 of them or something. And one of them is emotional.
Most people I’ve talked to are convinced that they’re not getting valuable information from news media anymore. I’m not talking about tinfoil-hatters either, these are intelligent people who believe their news media has failed them.
An intelligent person is never afraid or ashamed to find errors in his understanding of things.
Mos Def is one of the most creative, intelligent human beings I’ve had the opportunity to work with. He is fun. The entire time, he would go in and out of different characters, just for the fun of it. Awesome energy.

I remember I was up for the role of Jim in ‘Huck Finn,’ and because I went to Harvard and Yale, they didn’t think I would be able to play a slave. I said, ‘Oh, please.’ I had to go in there and prove to them that I wasn’t too intelligent to play a slave.
A lot of new artists, especially girl artists, feel pressure to be so ‘media perfect’ and ‘trained.’ I’m intelligent, but I don’t like hearing regurgitated answers in interviews that sound so rehearsed.
For me, men and women are different. A man is geneticallygifted to pull more than a woman. But at the same time, I don’t consider women to be any less than men. In fact, I feel we are far more intelligent than them.
There used to be that you only had four or five critics that you would look to for intelligent conversation, but now there are millions of people who can just press ‘send,’ and everyone’s got an opinion even if no one cares what they say. It makes things a little bit tougher.
You have to assume that you’re talking to the most intelligent, tuned-in audience you could ever get. That’s the way you’re going to get the best out of people. Whether they know you or not shouldn’t matter for comedy. They should get to know you pretty quickly. and they should be having a good time pretty quickly.
