Re: True Genius!!!
True genius has nothing to do with what powers u have. True genius depends on how exceptionally u use what u do have. Having Sharingan didnt prevent the whole Uciha clan from being wiped out by 2 people. Having kekkegenkais didnt prevent the bone manipulating shinobi nor Haku's family from being wiped out. A kekkegenkai didnt allow the 1st Hokage to defeat the 3rd. Everyone with a kekkegenkai isn't and wasn't necessarily an exceptional shinobi. They just had exceptional abilities.
Becoming strong all by yourself does not necessarily mean that u developed that strength faster, or can use that strength better than the average shinobi. True genius is determined by how advanced u are compared to your peers, and the standards for your age, society, and whatever it is that the genius is being measured in(shinobi).
Kakashi is a genius. To be a non Uchiha and develop the MS. He developed the 3 tomoe and MS on his own. To be made a jounin at such a young age. To create Chidori at such a young age.
Madara and his brother were genius'
the 1st Hokage was a genius
Itachi was definitely a true genius. He excelled much faster than most Uchihas.
Genius is not determined by what u can do. It is determined by how well, and how fast u can do it compared to most others in the same field.
Wisdom, compassion, and courage are the three universally recognized moral qualities of men.
There is a wisdom of the head and a wisdom of the heart.
To be satisfied with a little is the greatest wisdom; and he that increaseth his riches, increaseth his cares; but a contented mind is a hidden treasure, and trouble findeth it not.
It is the nature of the wise to resist pleasures, but the foolish to be a slave to them.
It requires wisdom to understand wisdom: the music is nothing if the audience is deaf.
Knowing others is wisdom; knowing yourself is Enlightenment.
It's better to be a lion for a day than a sheep all your life.
