Opposition

When a true genius appears in this world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him.

— Jonathan Swift, Thoughts on Various Subjects

Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence.

— Albert Einstein
