A Quote by Oscar Fingall O'Flahertie Wills Wilde on beauty, intellectual, intellegence, talent, and ugly

"But beauty, real beauty, ends where an intellectual expression begins. Intellect is in itself a mode of exaggeration, and destroys the harmony of any face.  The moment one sits down to think, one becomes all nose, or all forehead, or something horrid."

Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900)

A Quote by George Lucas on talent, skill, and flow

Everybody has talent and it's just a matter of moving around until you've discovered what it is. A talent is a combination of something you love a great deal and something you can lose yourself in -- something that you can start at 9 o'clock, look up from your work and it's 10 o'clock at night -- and also something that you have a talent, not a talent for, but skills that you have a natural ability to do very well. And usually those two things go together.

A Quote by Steve Case on talent, skill, recruiting, people, and team

You're only as strong as your team, and people typically don't spend enough time recruiting. One of my challenges was always being like a professional recruiter, always looking at people as free agents and figuring, "Okay. They may be doing this now over there, but they seem like they have the perspective and skills that could be helpful here. How do we figure out a way of bringing them into our fold?" Constantly being on the lookout for talent is a critical variable, I think, particularly in these emerging markets.
