A Quote by Eric Hoffer on ability, achievement, awareness, confidence, difficulty, effort, failure, inspiration, misfortune, patience, persistence, and talent

They who lack talent expect things to happen without effort. They ascribe failure to a lack of inspiration or ability, or to misfortune, rather than to insufficient application. At the core of every true talent there is an awareness of the difficulties inherent in any achievement, and the confidence that by persistence and patience something worthwhile will be realized. Thus talent is a species of vigor.

A Quote by Chuang Chou, a.k.a. Chuang Tzu, Chuang Tse Chuang on action, beginning, destruction, effort, gifts, persistence, trying, understanding, and taoism

If you persist in trying to attain what is never attained (It is Tao's gift), if you persist in making effort to obtain what effort cannot get, if you persist in reasoning about what cannot be understood, you will be destroyed by the very thing you seek. To know when to stop, to know when you can get no further by your own action, this is the right beginning!

Chuang Tzu (c.360 BC - c. 275 BC)
