I just can't really appreciate this. I'm a strong believer that intelligence comes from how hard you try, which means studying and working hard to get good grades, especially on exams. I've always thought that you get out of something what you put into it. This quote kind of allows people to justify not trying their hardest to get the best marks, which is a bad idea. Really, we should post things that boost confidence, things that tell young students that if you truly try, and put your best effort in, you will get what you want out of it. Inspirational, motivational quotes that give a boost of determination is what is needed; not self-justifying words that encourage the idea that failing is something that is redeemable. It doesn't instill a good and competitive attitude to give someone who has failed a winner's ribbon. Yes, a self-esteem boost feels good, but it dulls your character, at least i.m.o.

which reminds me, i should really go study. ****

i never and i mean NEVER touched a book in high school to study for a test and i aced them all the time. i think that you have a point with working hard to study and intelligence but at the same time there's ALWAYS going to be exceptions. Like people that really do try their hardest to study and spend hours doing it and still barely pass and the other end of the spectrum like me.

Step 4: Continue with life as before.
