Genius consists in this, that the knowing faculty has received a considerably greater development than the service of the will demands.
    —    Arthur Schopenhauer
In other words, the genius is able to subjugate his will, or desires, in order to view the world objectively.  To the ordinary man, the world is temporary and specific;  to the genius, it is eternal, universal, and profound.
