Aphorisms have been around since ancient times. Generally speaking, these are short, memorable and concise statements that reveal a certain truth about life or a particular situation from which we can learn. Because they are so helpful, such maxims or adages have stood the test of time, often passed down from scholar to scholar. In the modern age, however, we have many more recorded words of wisdom from people who have come up with uplifting and inspirational statements. Sometimes, these are just as powerful as the old aphorisms and can even speak to us more clearly because they are more relatable. As such, many people use inspirational quotes to help them in their daily lives or to share with others to help inspire them.

In the medical sense of the word, it means not being able to withstand something.

Equally, exercise intolerance means a disorder that relates to physical activity. It can present in many ways, such as nausea, pain or even vomiting. Most people are aware of intolerances to certain types of food. This means getting a hypersensitive reaction when certain foodstuffs are consumed. Fructose malabsorption, lactose intolerance and gluten sensitivity are three of the best-known types of intolerances today.
When computer programs and algorithms mimic the human ability to think, they are said to be using artificial intelligence. The 'intelligence' part of the phrase refers to the ability to build knowledge derived from acquired data. The 'artificial' part refers to the machine that is using that intelligence, usually a computer or, increasingly, a series of computers that can communicate with one another over the internet. The idea is that artificial intelligence will be able to replicate or at least offer something similar to human thought processes in the near future.
