Examples of intellectuals in a Sentence

  1. Louis-Ferdinand Céline:

    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.

  2. Mao Zedong:

    Swollen in head, weak in legs, sharp in tongue but empty in belly. (On intellectuals)

  3. Marianne Ailes:

    The Roman de la Rose was at the center of a late medieval row between intellectuals about thestatus of women, so we have the possibility that these specific pages were taken out of their original bindings and recycled by someone who was offended by these scenes.

  4. Michel Foucault:

    There are more ideas on earth than intellectuals imagine. And these ideas are more active, stronger, more resistant, more passionate than politicians think. We have to be there at the birth of ideas, the bursting outward of their force: not in books expressing them, but in events manifesting this force, in struggles carried on around ideas, for or against them. Ideas do not rule the world. But it is because the world has ideas... that it is not passively ruled by those who are its leaders or those who would like to teach it, once and for all, what it must think.

  5. Ehsan Sehgal:

    When a writer, hired one or politically, and emotionally related to a subject for whatever purposes, writes not in a neutral concept, and honest notion; indeed, then a lie becomes a significant and reliable history in the eyes of pseudo-intellectuals. Similarly, as a negative-minded focuses on the thorns of a rose, ignoring and avoiding its beauty and fragrance that prevails.
