We are always more anxious to be distinguished for a talent which we do not possess, than to be praised for the fifteen which we do possess.
Use what talents you possess, the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.
If you have a talent use if in every which way possible. Don’t heard it. Don’t dole it out like a miser. Spend it lavishly like a millionaire intent on going broke.
Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow the talent to the dark place where it leads.
