Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow that talent to dark place where it leads.
Use what talent you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best.
Henry Van Dyke

Talent is God given. Be humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful.
Great things are accomplished by talented people who believe they will accomplish them.
Warren G. Bennis

H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
A really great talent finds its happiness in execution.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Imagination is not a talent of some men but is the health of every man.
