Quotes | On
The following are quotes on Grotius:

Grotius, Leibnitz, Goethe, three universal geniuses, the evidence of whose overpowering intellect appeared and was recognized in earliest childhood as it was later in their youth, are doubtless among the greatest minds with whom this study is concerned. A minimum childhood IQ for these cannot be less than 180. A maximum is probably close to the maximum for the human race.”
Catherine Cox (1926), Early Mental Traits of Three Hundred Geniuses (pg. 155)

Grotius thought that in relations between nations there were natural laws which needed only research and reason to discover their principles.”
