"Mediocrity" doesn't mean average intelligence, it means an average intelligence that resents and envies its betters
Ayn Rand
Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.
Albert Einstein

Binet was smiling, his chin down, his nostrils distended. He seemed lost in the kind of happiness which, as a rule, accompanies only those mediocre occupations that tickle the intelligence with easy difficulties, and satisfy it with a sense of achievement beyond which there is nothing left for dreams to feed on.
Gustave Flaubert
In the republic of mediocrity, genius is dangerous
Robert Green Ingersoll
Jealousy is the tribute mediocrity pays to genius.
Fulton J. Sheen
Mediocrity can talk; but it is for genius to observe
Benjamin Disraeli
Mediocrity is excellent to the eyes of mediocre people
Joseph Joubert
Mediocrity is not allowed to poets, either by the gods or man
Horace
Ridicule is the tribute paid to the genius by the mediocrities.
Oscar Wilde
There are certain things in which mediocrity is intolerable: poetry, music, painting, public eloquence. What torture it is to hear a frigid speech being pompously declaimed, or second-rate verse spoken with all a bad poet's bombast!
Jean de la Bruyere
