When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, "I used everything you gave me."

Put your talent into your work, but your genius into your life.

The most exciting place to discover talent is in yourself.

Every human has four endowments- self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom... The power to choose, to respond, to change.

Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow the talent to the dark place where it leads.

It is not enough to have a good mind; the main thing is to use it well.

Winning takes talent, to repeat takes character.

Talent works, genius creates.

Doing easily what others find difficult is talent; doing what is impossible for talent is genius.

The luck of having talent is not enough; one must also have a talent for luck.

Som <><><> Talent is like electricity. We don't understand electricity. We use it. You can plug into it and light up a lamp, keep a heart pump going, light a cathedral, or you can electrocute a person with it. Electricity will do all that.
