talent

A Quote by Eugene Edwards on birth, labor, men, providence, talent, and virtue

If by saying that all men are born free and equal, you mean that they are all equally born, it is true, but true in no other sense; birth, talent, labor, virtue, and providence, are forever making differences.

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 Edward Herbert Land on creativity, management, and talent

If you're articulate enough, then you don't have to manage anybody else. Management comes in doing only one thing they can't do for themselves: finding what part of each undertaking a particular person's talents fit. Each person is talented, creative and productive in some way.

What men want is not talent, it is purpose; in other words, not the power to achieve, but the will to labor.
