Talent quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#1. You have a good many little gifts and virtues, but there is no need of parading them, for conceit spoils the finest genius. There is not much danger that real talent or goodness will be overlooked long, and the great charm of all power is modesty. #Quote by Louisa May Alcott
Talent quotes by Jeffrey Skoll
#2. I believe that Silicon Valley is truly a place of excellence and the impact of this tiny community on the world is completely disproportionate to its size. We are the undisputed leaders of technological change. But with our abundance of talent and resources, we also have the opportunity to be the pioneers of social change and, ultimately, this may be our greatest contribution. #Quote by Jeffrey Skoll
Talent quotes by Jack Nicklaus
#3. He had a lot of talent, but didn't have much dedication, wasn't organized, didn't know how to learn, didn't know how to comprehend what he was doing, didn't try to learn how to get better. #Quote by Jack Nicklaus
Talent quotes by Ben Schnetzer
#4. If they're going to cast one person and not another, it's not rejection of your talent, it's just that they want one person and not someone else. As an actor, unfortunately, it's not your job to cast the movie. #Quote by Ben Schnetzer
Talent quotes by Judy Delton
#5. Many writers believe in arrival without leaving home. They believe in talent but not skill. #Quote by Judy Delton

Talent quotes by Mick LaSalle
#7. FRENCH CINEMA IS SO RICH in opportunities for actresses of talent that a career needn't build quickly, with a few star-making turns. It can build slowly, over the course of years. An actress can make the most of ensemble and supporting parts, grow in popularity, grow in ability and ultimately find herself, some ten years down the line, in possession of a major career. #Quote by Mick LaSalle
Talent quotes by David Mezzapelle
#8. TALENT When I was young I had a great talent For bitching and moaning, Lamenting my errors Lost in self-pity's groaning.

A poem by Karen Lyons Kalmenson #Quote by David Mezzapelle
Talent quotes by Lesley M.M. Blume

Talent quotes by Ellen G. White
#11. Talents used are talents multiplied. #Quote by Ellen G. White

Talent quotes by J.K. Rowling
#15. I have many questions for you, Harry Potter."
"Like what?" Harry spat, fists still clenched.
"Well," said Riddle, smiling pleasantly, "how is it that you- a skinny boy with no extraordinary magical talent- managed to defeat the greatest wizard of all time? How did you escape with nothing but a scar, while Lord Voldemort's powers were destroyed?"
There was an odd red gleam in his hungry eyes now.
"Why do you care how I escaped?" said Harry slowly. "Voldemort was after your time...."
"Voldemort," said Riddle softly, "is my past, present, and future, Harry Potter...."
He pulled Harry's wand from his pocket and began to trace it through the air, writing three shimmering words:

TOM MARVOLO RIDDLE

Then he waved the wand once, and the letters of his name rearranged themselves:

I AM LORD VOLDEMORT

"You see?" he whispered. "It was a name I was already using at Hogwarts, to my most intimate friends only, of course. You think I was going to use my filthy Muggle father's name forever? I, in whose veins runs the blood of Salazar Slytherin himself, through my mother's side? I, keep the name of a foul, common Muggle, who abandoned me even before I was born, just because he found out his wife was a witch? No, Harry- I fashioned myself a new name, a name I knew wizards everywhere would one day fear to speak, when I had become the greatest sorcerer in the world! #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Talent quotes by Mukesh Bansal
#16. We will unearth the talent from every part of India and give them a platform to make it big. #Quote by Mukesh Bansal
Talent quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#17. Together with an elderly artist (I regret that I don't remember his name) he occupied a separate room in the barracks. And there Yuri painted for nothing schmaltzy pictures such as Nero's Feast and the Chorus of Elves and the like for the German officers on the commandant's staff. In return, he was given food. The slops for which the POW officers stood in line with their mess tins from 6 a.m. on, while the Ordners beat them with sticks and the cooks with ladles, were not enough to sustain life. At evening, Yuri could see from the windows of their room the one and only picture for which his artistic talent had been given him: the evening mist hovering above a swampy meadow encircled by barbed wire; a multitude of bonfires; and, around the bonfires, beings who had once been Russian officers but had now become beastlike creatures who gnawed the bones of dead horses, who baked patties from potato rinds, who smoked manure and were all swarming with lice. Not all those two-legged creatures had died as yet. Not all of them had yet lost the capacity for intelligible speech, and one could see in the crimson reflections of the bonfires how a belated understanding was dawning on those faces which were descending to the Neanderthal. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Talent quotes by Dan Marino
#18. As a young man God blessed me with a special talent to throw a football. #Quote by Dan Marino
Talent quotes by Steven Erikson
#19. As far as Gu'Rull could determine, the only virtue humans possessed was a talent for starting over, with stern resolve restored in the sudden glow of renewed optimism, in complete disregard of whatever lessons past failures might offer. And he had no choice but to acknowledge the power of that virtue. It is contingent upon collective amnesia, but as everyone knows, stupidity needs no excuse to repeat itself. #Quote by Steven Erikson
Talent quotes by Lucia Berlin
#20. Mrs. Bevins smiled. "Okay. I'll cop. I think every teacher sees this sometimes. It's not simply intelligence or talent. It's a nobility of spirit. A quality which could make him great at whatever he wanted to do." We #Quote by Lucia Berlin
Talent quotes by Rudy Francisco
#21. Loving you
was the last thing
I felt really good at. #Quote by Rudy Francisco
Talent quotes by Felix Dennis
#22. When you come across real talent, it is sometimes worth allowing them to create the structure in which they choose to labor. In nine cases out of ten, by inviting them to take responsibility and control for a new venture, you will motivate them to do great things. #Quote by Felix Dennis
Talent quotes by Leigh Hunt
#23. I loved my friend for his gentleness, his candor, his good repute, his freedom even from my own livelier manner, his calm and reasonable kindness. It was not any particular talent that attracted me to him, or i anything striking whatsoever. I should say in one word, it was his goodness. #Quote by Leigh Hunt
Talent quotes by Herschel Walker
#24. My God given talent is my ability to stick with training longer than anybody else. #Quote by Herschel Walker
Talent quotes by Kathleen Tessaro
#25. There's an art to life. Some people have talent for it. A boundless hope illuminates them. Where others are vague and tentative, they have only sharp, clear edges. Energy soars; lights burn brighter when they enter a room. #Quote by Kathleen Tessaro
Talent quotes by Richie Norton
#26. If self-employment is the opposite of employed-by-other, than a job is outsourcing your freedom (time and talent) to a boss. #Quote by Richie Norton
Talent quotes by Erwin Raphael McManus
#27. The only art we can create is that which authentically reflects who we are. Our soul is the material for all we create. Thus, to nurture the artisan soul, essence is far more important than talent. #Quote by Erwin Raphael McManus
Talent quotes by Michele Jennae
#28. On the great canvas of time
We all create our own masterpiece.
Choreographing our steps across minutes and hours
Dancing over the days
Painting pictures over months and
Writing our stories on the years.
Singing our songs that echo across eons.
We are all a thread in the talent tapestry.
A snapshot in the cosmic, collective collage. #Quote by Michele Jennae
Talent quotes by Frank Bidart
#29. Song
You know that it is there, lair
where the bear ceases
for a time even to exist.
Crawl in. You have at last killed
enough and eaten enough to be fat
enough to cease for a time to exist.
Crawl in. It takes talent to live at night, and scorning
others you had that talent, but now you sniff
the season when you must cease to exist.
Crawl in. Whatever for good or ill
grows within you needs
you for a time to cease to exist.
It is not raining inside
tonight. You know that it is there. Crawl in. #Quote by Frank Bidart
Talent quotes by Jeremy Renner
#30. Oh, all those ridiculous people with zero talent who spend their lives making sure everyone knows their name. Those stupid, stupid people. #Quote by Jeremy Renner
Talent quotes by Aaron Denius Garcia
#31. The biggest and first obstacle any artist faces is not believing they can do something. You have the talent. Just believe you are capable of doing it, because you are. Writing anything, for anyone, regardless of expertise, is like crossing the Atlantic in a canoe. What you are doing is saying "I don't know how to row". Start rowing, you will get there. Just know it will take time and perseverance, but you will get there! #Quote by Aaron Denius Garcia
Talent quotes by Daniel Webster
#32. If all my talents and powers were to be taken from me by some unscrutable Providence, and I had my choice of keeping but one, I would unhesitatingly ask for be allowed to keep the Power of Speaking, for through it I would quickly recover all the rest. #Quote by Daniel Webster
Talent quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#33. Children can create fun out of nothing and when this great talent is lost you become a boring creature which is called adult! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Talent quotes by Dorothy Fields
#34. I do not think men have more talent. There are a great many women in the arts; novelists, painters, sculptors, poets-but the proportion is far lower in the field of song writing. #Quote by Dorothy Fields
Talent quotes by Garry Kasparov
#35. The ability to work hard for days on end without losing focus is a talent. The ability to keep absorbing new information after many hours of study is a talent. #Quote by Garry Kasparov
Talent quotes by Derek Rydall
#36. The interesting (and sometimes scary) thing about living a purposeful life is you begin to realize that, in a very real way, your life is not your own. You're not here to just get all the good stuff for yourself - and maybe your loved ones - so you can live a happy, pleasure-filled existence. You are part of a larger organism, a larger system, and all the good that you receive, all the talent you possess, everything that you have, is not for your benefit only - but for the benefit of the whole system. And the more you surrender to this, the more the universe will pour its bounty through you so you can be a bigger giver. #Quote by Derek Rydall
Talent quotes by Stephen Tow
#37. Any local music scene at any point in time can be referred to as derivative of more well-known acts. The line separating influence from imitation is a blurry one. Very few artists are completely original; even great artists build upon what has occurred before, and add their personality and talent to create their own original expression. #Quote by Stephen Tow
Talent quotes by David Halberstam
#38. Because Japan had no defense industry, he knew, and not even an airplane industry, the best engineers of a generation were being funneled into other, seemingly more prosaic sectors, like automobiles, for example, and steel. These industries, which in America were having increasing difficulty competing for top engineers, were getting the absolute cream in Japan. This advantage in talent was already making a considerable difference, Hayashi believed, as Japan's heavy industries began to compete in the world's markets. #Quote by David Halberstam
Talent quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#39. Potassium cyanide," says the talent wrangler as she leans over to pick up a paper napkin off the floor. "Found naturally in the cassava or manioc roots native to Africa, used to tint architectural blueprints in the form of the deep-blue pigment known as Prussian blue. Hence the shade 'cyan' blue. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Talent quotes by John Polson
#40. Australians love to pump you up when you're nobody. Then, when you start to put your head above water and say, 'Well, actually, I am a bit different, I am an individual and I do have a particular talent', or whatever, they want to go after you. But the good news is that once you reach a certain level, I think they start to leave you alone. #Quote by John Polson
Talent quotes by David Morrell
#41. Learn to respect a craftsman's talent, to realize that a task done well seems easy but is terribly difficult. #Quote by David Morrell
Talent quotes by Robert D. Hales
#42. As we follow [the Savior], He blesses us with gifts, talents, and the strength to do His will, allowing us to go beyond our comfort zones and do things we've never before thought possible. #Quote by Robert D. Hales
Talent quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#43. Begin to increase your gift, talent, potentials, self-development if you want to be prosperous #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Talent quotes by Robin Sharma
#44. A timeless lesson for a deeply fulfilling life is to discover your calling, that special work or consuming occupation that fully engages your special talents with your passions. #Quote by Robin Sharma
Talent quotes by Susan Cain
#45. One highly successful venture capitalist who is regularly pitched by young entrepreneurs told me how frustrated he is by his colleagues' failure to distinguish between good presentation skills and true leadership ability. "I worry that there are people who are put in positions of authority because they're good talkers, but they don't have good ideas," he said. "It's so easy to confuse schmoozing ability with talent. #Quote by Susan Cain
Talent quotes by John Corey Whaley
#46. When I asked him the meaning of life, Dr. Webb got very quiet and then told me life has no one meaning, it only has whatever meaning each of us puts on our own life. I'll tell you now that I still don't know the meaning of mine. And Lucas Cader, with all his brains and talent, doesn't know the meaning of his, either. But I'll tell you the meaning of all this. The meaning of some bird showing up and some boy disappearing and you knowing all about it. The meaning of this was not to save you, but to warn you instead. To warn you of confusion and delusion and assumption. To warn you of psychics and zombies and ghosts of your lost brother. To warn you of Ada Taylor and her sympathy and mothers who wake you up with vacuums. To warn you of two-foot-tall birds that say they can help, but never do. #Quote by John Corey Whaley
Talent quotes by Richard Stallman
#47. I don't have a problem with someone using their talents to become successful, I just don't think the highest calling is success. Things like freedom and the expansion of knowledge are beyond success, beyond the personal. Personal success is not wrong, but it is limited in importance, and once you have enough of it it is a shame to keep striving for that, instead of for truth, beauty, or justice. #Quote by Richard Stallman
Talent quotes by Tabitha McGowan
#48. I have this prodigious talent for painting the person behind the facade, but with Blaine the facade is all there is left - just artifice, guile, and an expensive pair of silicone tits. #Quote by Tabitha McGowan
Talent quotes by Chris Burkmenn
#49. Behind every dreamer stands an army full of true believers. #Quote by Chris Burkmenn
Talent quotes by Xavier Dolan
#50. I'd rather be referred to as a precocious young Quebec talent, than not be referred to at all. #Quote by Xavier Dolan
Talent quotes by Mark Vonnegut
#51. The first meeting I really remember with the good doctor was when I was starting to be able to speak English again and making a brave attempt to regain some of my dignity. Trying to be very sane, I went up to him and asked if he was my doctor. He said he didn't think so.
"You're Dr. Dale, aren't you?"
"Why, Mark, of course. I didn't recognize you with clothes on." He had a talent for saying just the right thing. #Quote by Mark Vonnegut
Talent quotes by Michael Jackson
#52. I'm just a person who wants to be honest and do good, make people happy and give them the greatest sense of escapism through the talent God has given me. That's where my heart is, that's all I want to do. Just let me share and give, put a smile on people's faces and make their hearts feel happy. #Quote by Michael Jackson
Talent quotes by Apolo Ohno
#53. Passion is the spark for everything. By itself, passion is never enough. Just like talent is never enough. But it's your fire starter.
Without passion, you won't do something 100 percent. That's the bottom line.
And what's the point of doing something if you're not doing it 100 percent? #Quote by Apolo Ohno
Talent quotes by Jane Austen
#54. Perhaps you are not sitting in this room, and I am not sitting by you. These are points in which a doubt is equally possible. Not keep a journal! How are your absent cousins to understand the tenour of your life in Bath without one? How are the civilities and compliments of every day to be related as they ought to be, unless noted down every evening in a journal? How are your various dresses to be remembered, and the particular state of your complexion, and curl of your hair to be described in all their diversities, without having constant recourse to a journal? My dear madam, I am not so ignorant of young ladies' ways as you wish to believe me; it is this delightful habit of journaling which largely contributes to form the easy style of writing for which ladies are so generally celebrated. Everybody allows that the talent of writing agreeable letters is peculiarly female. Nature may have done something, but I am sure it must be essentially assisted by the practice of keeping a journal. #Quote by Jane Austen
Talent quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#55. ...too many facts hamper a diplomat, especially an honest one."
"I'm not especially honest."
"But you have no talent for dishonesty, so your refuge must be ignorance and stubbornness. You have the latter; try to preserve the former. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Talent quotes by Gift Gugu Mona
#56. Although it is good to have talent, character is so much important because bad character is an enemy for great talent. #Quote by Gift Gugu Mona
Talent quotes by John Wooden
#57. The team with the most talent usually wins. #Quote by John Wooden
Talent quotes by Darnell M. Hunt
#58. It's just unfair that talent of color aren't given the same opportunities as white and male actors, directors, producers, writers, et cetera. #Quote by Darnell M. Hunt
Talent quotes by Chris Riddell
#59. Roald Dahl worked with other illustrators, but it was only when he teamed up with Quentin Blake that the chemistry began to fizz. Quentin Blake is Britain's greatest living illustrator and has that special talent all the great illustrators have, of unobtrusive brilliance. #Quote by Chris Riddell
Talent quotes by Esi Edugyan
#60. Do you still call it talent, if it blooms without any kind of nurturing? That's got to be something else.
She made talent sound like a damned insult. #Quote by Esi Edugyan
Talent quotes by Ed Sheeran
#61. You start off with a little spark, and it's whether or not you nurture that spark. You have to expand it and work on it #Quote by Ed Sheeran
Talent quotes by Kate Beckinsale
#62. I grew up as an only child and my mother was also an only child, so we were both very passionate about reading. I think I passed that on to my daughter, who went plowing through 'Harry Potter' and every other book possible! #Quote by Kate Beckinsale
Talent quotes by Frank Bruni
#63. You can make a successful run for political office in this country without an especially thick résumé, any exceptional talent for expressing yourself, a noteworthy education or, for that matter, a basic grasp of science.

But you better have religion. You better be ready to profess your faith in and fealty to God - the Judeo-Christian one, of course. And you better be convincing. A dust-up last week in the 2014 race for a United States Senate seat from Arkansas provided a sad reminder of this, showing once again that our ballyhooed separation of church and state is less canyon than itty-bitty crack. #Quote by Frank Bruni
Talent quotes by J.J. McAvoy
#64. She could disarm and cut people down with them alone. It was a talent of hers. She had no need for guns, she just liked them. #Quote by J.J. McAvoy
Talent quotes by Margaret Mead
#65. The city as a center where, any day in any year, there may be a fresh encounter with a new talent, a keen mind or a gifted specialist-this is essential to the life of a country. To play this role in our lives a city must have a soul-a university, a great art or music school, a cathedral or a great mosque or temple, a great laboratory or scientific center, as well as the libraries and museums and galleries that bring past and present together. A city must be a place where groups of women and men are seeking and developing the highest things they know. #Quote by Margaret Mead
Talent quotes by Oscar Isaac
#66. Talent is very hot. #Quote by Oscar Isaac
Talent quotes by David Hambrick
#67. failure is costly, both to society and to individuals. Pretending that all people are equal in their abilities will not change the fact that a person with an average IQ is unlikely to become a theoretical physicist, or the fact that a person with a low level of music ability is unlikely to become a concert pianist. It makes more sense to pay attention to people's abilities and their likelihood of achieving certain goals, so people can make good decisions about the goals they want to spend their time, money, and energy pursuing #Quote by David Hambrick
Talent quotes by Roger Ailes
#68. I don't have any focus groups on talent and programming. If I need five people in a mall to be paid $40 to tell me how to do my job, I shouldn't do my job. #Quote by Roger Ailes
Talent quotes by Emile M. Cioran
#69. Every form of talent involves a certain shameless-ness. #Quote by Emile M. Cioran
Talent quotes by Mike Ditka
#70. Sometimes, God gives you physical talent and takes away the brain. #Quote by Mike Ditka
Talent quotes by Gregor Collins
#71. Talent is being unabashedly and unapologetically fearless in the work that you do. The only difference between having talent and not having talent is fear. #Quote by Gregor Collins
Talent quotes by Patricia Reilly Giff
#72. I have no special talent, you know. I never took a writing course before I began to write. #Quote by Patricia Reilly Giff
Talent quotes by A&E Kirk
#73. I'd prefer a debriefing by the professional," Matthias said. "Rather than one of the idiot's exhausting, million-words-in-one-breath babbling explanations." "Hey," I said. "That is a rare talent." "Maybe your only talent. #Quote by A&E Kirk
Talent quotes by Jim Talent
#74. I would love to be able to serve in office in some capacity with Romney as president. #Quote by Jim Talent
Talent quotes by Gene Tierney
#75. I simply did not want my face to be my talent. #Quote by Gene Tierney
Talent quotes by Zach Condon
#76. As much as I try to grow as a lyricist, I tend to laugh at even calling myself that, because I think that my actual talents lie more in arrangements than they do words. #Quote by Zach Condon
Talent quotes by Charles Horton Cooley
#77. A talent somewhat above mediocrity, shrewd and not too sensitive, is more likely to rise in the world than genius. #Quote by Charles Horton Cooley
Talent quotes by Thomas A Kempis
#78. The more you know and the better you understand, the more severely will you be judged, unless
your life is also the more holy. Do not be proud, therefore, because of your learning or skill. Rather, fear because of the talent given you. If you think you know many things and understand them well enough, realize at the same time that there is much you do not know. Hence, do not affect wisdom, but admit your ignorance. Why prefer yourself to anyone else when many are more learned, more cultured than you? #Quote by Thomas A Kempis
Talent quotes by Joni Mitchell
#79. I heard someone from the music business saying they are no longer looking for talent, they want people with a certain look and a willingness to cooperate. #Quote by Joni Mitchell
Talent quotes by Tattoo Savage Magazine
#80. Hart has proven he has talent and there is a market out there for queasy, uneasy, in-yo'-face, material."
-Tattoo Savage Magazine #Quote by Tattoo Savage Magazine
Talent quotes by Jerry Springer
#81. I'm always playing a role, whether it's the role of the mayor, the role of a news anchor, or a role of a crazy talk-show host. But there was a specific function. 'On Dancing With The Stars', I had nothing to do but be me, schlepping around the floor. And when I host 'America's Got Talent', that's really me just talking to regular folks. #Quote by Jerry Springer
Talent quotes by Kevin Hart
#82. The quote-unquote 'description' of a leading man was once your tall, handsome man with the build of whatever, almost a trophy to some degree. I think now it's about making a leading man what you want a leading man to be. In this day, you can't deny talent. You look at Jonah Hill, you look at Zach Galifianakis, you look at myself. #Quote by Kevin Hart
Talent quotes by Jack Kerouac
#83. Genius gives birth, talent delivers. #Quote by Jack Kerouac
Talent quotes by Leon Uris
#84. Talent isn't enough. You need motivation-and persistence, too: what Steinbeck called a blend of faith and arrogance. When you're young, plain old poverty can be enough, along with an insatiable hunger for recognition. You have to have that feeling of "I'll show them." If you don't have it, don't become a writer #Quote by Leon Uris
Talent quotes by Daniel Akaka
#85. There is a human capital crisis in the federal government. Not only are we losing the decades of talent as civil servants retire, we are not doing enough to develop and nurture the next generation of public servants. #Quote by Daniel Akaka
Talent quotes by Shia Labeouf
#86. To my mind, talent doesn't really exist. #Quote by Shia Labeouf
Talent quotes by Marv Levy
#87. The caliber of play in professional football compared to college is better and everybody knows it. They don't realize how much better. What a giant leap forward in the ability of talent level, the speed, and even the grasp of what you are trying to do. There is no other distractions before the players. #Quote by Marv Levy
Talent quotes by Enrique Vila-Matas
#88. He believes that if talent is demanded of a literary publisher or a writer, it must also be demanded of a reader. Because we mustn't deceive ourselves: on the journey of reading we often travel through difficult terrains that demand a capacity for intelligent emotion, a desire to understand the other, and to approach a language distinct from the one of our daily tyrannies ... Writers fail readers, but it also happens the other way around and readers fail writers when all they ask of them is confirmation that the world is how they see it. #Quote by Enrique Vila-Matas
Talent quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#89. Every natural power exhilarates; a true talent delights the possessor first. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Talent quotes by Jeff Henderson
#90. Talent matters. Systems matter. Strategies matter. We can't just bring nice people together and think we're going to solve the world's problems. #Quote by Jeff Henderson
Talent quotes by Pearl Zhu
#91. The "self-driven" talent performance management is pursuing the digital way to run a purpose-driven organization. #Quote by Pearl Zhu
Talent quotes by Virat Kohli
#92. Irrespective of whether you have talent or not, one has to work hard. Just being talented doesn't mean anything; you can end up wasting it before you realize. #Quote by Virat Kohli
Talent quotes by Jonathan Lethem
#93. Dylan never met anyone who wasn't about to change immediately into someone else. His was a special talent for encountering persons about to shed one identity or disguise for another. #Quote by Jonathan Lethem
Talent quotes by James Comey
#94. The FBI is engaged in a myriad of efforts to combat cyber threats, from efforts focused on threat identification and sharing inside and outside of government, to our internal emphasis on developing and retaining new talent and changing the way we operate to evolve with the cyber threat. #Quote by James Comey
Talent quotes by Beth Brooke
#95. Some companies are already investing in women and thereby betting on a brighter future - for a workforce just waiting to blossom, for emerging economies whose development depends on this new talent, and, of course, for their own financial growth. #Quote by Beth Brooke
Talent quotes by Brian Van Holt
#96. Meryl Streep's got talent, she's got skills. I'm sure she wants to be on 'Cougar Town,' right? #Quote by Brian Van Holt
Talent quotes by Eric Cantona
#97. You need a particular talent only to want to please. I don't have this talent. #Quote by Eric Cantona
Talent quotes by Meryl Streep
#98. You can have a perfectly horrible day where you doubt your talent ... Or that you're boring and they're going to find out that you don't know what you're doing. #Quote by Meryl Streep
Talent quotes by Seth Godin
#99. Conformity no longer leads to comfort. But the good news is that creativity is scarce, and more valuable than ever. So is choosing to do something unpredictable and brave: make art. Being an artist isn't a genetic disposition or a specific talent. It's an attitude we can all adopt. It's a hunger to seize new ground, make connections, and work without a map. If you do those things you're an artist, no matter what it says on your business card. #Quote by Seth Godin
Talent quotes by Dean Koontz
#100. Every talent is unearned, however, and with it comes a solemn obligation to use it as fully and as wisely as possible. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Talent quotes by Augustin Thierry
#101. Greediness consists in ravishing the goods of another through violence or cunning, as in the two noble professions of the conqueror and courtier. But the merchant, like all other industrious men, seeks his benefit only in his talent, in virtue of freely arrived at agreements, and appealing to faith and the laws. #Quote by Augustin Thierry
Talent quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#102. The misery that oppresses you lies not in your profession but in yourself! What man in the world would not find his situation intolerable if he chooses a craft, an art, indeed any form of life, without experiencing an inner calling? Whoever is born with a talent, or to a talent, must surely find in that the most pleasing of occupations! Everything on this earth has its difficult sides! Only some inner drive - pleasure, love - can help us overcome obstacles, prepare a path, and lift us out of the narrow circle in which others tread out their anguished, miserable existences! #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Talent quotes by Jerry Bruckheimer
#103. I should have had more faith in my talent. I think I would have gotten to achieve more, earlier, had I believed in myself. But I let other people take credit for my work. #Quote by Jerry Bruckheimer
Talent quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#104. There are no crimes and no criminals in these days. What is the use of having brains in our profession? I know well that I have it in me to make my name famous. No man lives or has ever lived who has brought the same amount of study and of natural talent to the detection of crime which I have done. And what is the result? There is no crime to detect, or, at most, some bungling villainy with a motive so transparent that even a Scotland Yard official can see through it. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Talent quotes by Turcois Ominek
#105. When you ignore your gift, you runaway from your purpose. #Quote by Turcois Ominek
Talent quotes by Anna D. Shapiro
#106. Everyone has the talent to some degree: even making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, you know whether it tastes better to you with raspberry jam or grape jelly; on chewy pumpernickel or white toast. #Quote by Anna D. Shapiro
Talent quotes by Gwen Hayes
#107. Some high school boys define themselves by their peers, some by their dreams, and some by their wallets. They are characterized by their family ties, their sense of humor, their cultivated skills, and their natural talent. Some want a girl for a week. Some hope it lasts a lifetime. Some don't even want a girl at all. #Quote by Gwen Hayes
Talent quotes by Dustin Moskovitz
#108. As with Google, Facebook was a place that just concentrated a lot of top talent. It's just sort of natural that those people would go on and continue to be successful. #Quote by Dustin Moskovitz
Talent quotes by Olga Tokarczuk
#109. I grew up in a beautiful era, now sadly in the past. In it there was great readiness for change, and a talent for creating revolutionary visions. Nowadays no one still has the courage to think up anything new. All they ever talk about, round the clock, is how things already are, they just keep rolling out the same old ideas. Reality has grown old and gone senile; after all, it is definitely subject to the same laws as every living organism - it ages. Just like the cells of the body, its tiniest components - the senses, succumb to apoptosis. Apoptosis is natural death, brought about by the tiredness and exhaustion of matter. In Greek this word means 'the dropping of petals.' The world has dropped its petals. #Quote by Olga Tokarczuk
Talent quotes by Melinda Gates
#110. I've never held the view that women are better than men, or that the best way to improve the world is for women to gain more power than men. I think male dominance is harmful to society because any dominance is harmful: It means society is governed by a false hierarchy where power and opportunity are awarded according to gender, age, wealth, and privilege - not according to skill, effort, talent, or accomplishments. When a culture of dominance is broken, it activates power in all of us. So the goal for me is not the rise of women and the fall of man. It is the rise of both women and men from a struggle for dominance to a state of partnership.
If the goal is partnership between women and men, why do I put so much emphasis on women's empowerment and women's groups? My answer is that we draw strength from each other, and we often have to convince ourselves that we deserve an equal partnership before we get one. #Quote by Melinda Gates
Talent quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
#111. However gifted an individual is at the outset, if his or her talents cannot be developed because of his or her social condition, because of the surrounding circumstances, these talents will be still-born. #Quote by Simone De Beauvoir
Talent quotes by Tim Salmon
#112. I have always been determined to never compromise my faith or my principles. I always relied on my God-given talent when I took the field. So the idea of using PED's to enhance my performance was a line I chose not to cross. #Quote by Tim Salmon
Talent quotes by Peter Carey
#113. You're discussing recreational drugs?" He stood and shut the door and came back looking very serious indeed. I was chastened, as I should have been. "Sorry. What have I never minded about?" "Well, I have truthfully always imagined it was my talent, my gift to introduce my friends to each other. Not one I could ever use for my own happiness, I must say. #Quote by Peter Carey
Talent quotes by Louise Rennison
#114. Campingfahrt means not, as you might imagine, an unfortunate incident with Libby in a tent ... . It means "camping trip." I think I have a natural talent for languages. #Quote by Louise Rennison

#115. It is my absolute belief that Indians have unlimited talent. I have no doubt about our capabilities. #Quote by Narendra Modi
Talent quotes by V.E. Schwab
#116. Because time is cruel to all, and crueler still to artists. Because visions weakens, and voices wither, and talent fades.... Because happiness is brief, and history is lasting, and in the end... everyone wants to be remembered #Quote by V.E. Schwab
Talent quotes by Reggie Miller
#117. I don't have the physical talent those guys have. My hard work has made me very good. #Quote by Reggie Miller

Talent quotes by Luke Donald
#119. The message I really want to get out there is that I'm someone who works hard, gets the most out of his talent, off the course has a great family life. #Quote by Luke Donald
Talent quotes by Don DeLillo
#120. Talent is everything. If you've got talent, nothing else matters. You can screw up your personal life something terrible. So what. If you've got talent, it's there in reserve. Anybody who has talent they know they have it and that's it. It's what makes you what you are. It tells you you're you. Talent is everything; sanity is nothing. I'm convinced of it. I think I had something once. I showed promise, didn't I? But I was too sane. I couldn't make the leap out of my own soul into the soul of the universe. That's the leap they all made. From Blake to Rimbaud. I don't write anything but checks. I read science fiction. I go on business trips to South Bend and Rochester. The one in Minnesota. Not Rochester, New York. Rochester, Minnesota. I couldn't make the leap. #Quote by Don DeLillo
Talent quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#121. There is nothing so annoying as to be fairly rich, of a fairly good family,
pleasing presence, average education, to be "not stupid," kindhearted,
and yet to have no talent at all, no originality, not a single idea
of one's own - to be, in fact, "just like everyone else."
Of such people there are countless numbers in this world - far more
even than appear. They can be divided into two classes as all men
can - that is, those of limited intellect, and those who are much cleverer.
The former of these classes is the happier.
To a commonplace man of limited intellect, for instance, nothing is
simpler than to imagine himself an original character, and to revel in that
belief without the slightest misgiving.
Many of our young women have thought fit to cut their hair short, put
on blue spectacles, and call themselves Nihilists. By doing this they have
been able to persuade themselves, without further trouble, that they
have acquired new convictions of their own. Some men have but felt
some little qualm of kindness towards their fellow-men, and the fact has
been quite enough to persuade them that they stand alone in the van of
enlightenment and that no one has such humanitarian feelings as they.
Others have but to read an idea of somebody else's, and they can immediately
assimilate it and believe that it was a child of their own brain.
The "impudence of ignorance," if I may use the expr #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Talent quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#122. Only talent interests me in paintings and books. Not general ideas, but the individual contribution. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Talent quotes by Kate Del Castillo
#123. What the rest of the world knows about Mexico is what they see on films and the bad news they see on TV. We need to make films that are worthy of who we really are as Mexicans. We also need to make cinema that reflects the diversity in the region, so that Americans and Europeans know who Mexicans are, who Salvadorians are, who Cubans are, etc. We need to do it, and all we really need is support because we have the talent. #Quote by Kate Del Castillo
Talent quotes by J.M. Robertson
#124. It was about that time [415 BCE] that the poet Diagoras of Melos was proscribed for atheism, he having declared that the non-punishment of a certain act of iniquity proved that there were no gods. It has been surmised, with some reason, that the iniquity in question was the slaughter of the Melians by the Athenians in 416 BCE, and the Athenian resentment in that case was personal and political rather than religious. For some time after 415 the Athenian courts made strenuous efforts to punish every discoverable case of impiety; and parodies of the Eleusinian mysteries were alleged against Alcibiades and others. Diagoras, who was further charged with divulging the Eleusinian and other mysteries, and with making firewood of an image of Herakles, telling the god thus to perform his thirteenth labour by cooking turnips, became thenceforth one of the proverbial atheists of the ancient world, and a reward of a silver talent was offered for killing him, and of two talents for his capture alive; despite which he seems to have escaped. #Quote by J.M. Robertson
Talent quotes by Abraham Maslow
#125. We are not in a position in which we have nothing to work with. We already have capacities, talents, direction, missions, callings. #Quote by Abraham Maslow
Talent quotes by Lou Barlow
#126. When I start to write a song, I have the words and I have the melody, and then it's just a matter of making it to the end. I think if I have something that I could identify as a talent, it would be that I can finish a song. I kind of know intuitively where the melody should go. #Quote by Lou Barlow
Talent quotes by Robert Musil
#127. For a long time now a hint of aversion had lain on everything he did and experienced, a shadow of impotence and loneliness, an all-encompassing distaste for which he could not find the complementary inclination. He felt at times as though he had been born with a talent for which there was at present no objective. #Quote by Robert Musil
Talent quotes by Aiden Wilson Tozer
#128. I say that a Christian congregation can survive and often appear to prosper in the community by the exercise of human talent and without any touch from the Holy Spirit! All that religious activity and the dear people will not know anything better until the great and terrible day when our self-employed talents are burned with fire and only that which was wrought by the Holy Ghost will stand forever! #Quote by Aiden Wilson Tozer
Talent quotes by Jason Purdy
#129. I've always been able to vomit as silently as a ninja; it's a questionable talent and a poor party trick. #Quote by Jason Purdy
Talent quotes by Tom Rath
#130. And it is likely that Rudy had teammates for whom the inverse was true - they were a 5 on talent and just a 2 on time invested, which is clearly a waste of talent. #Quote by Tom Rath
Talent quotes by Carl Von Clausewitz
#131. Talent and genius operate outside the rules, and theory conflicts with practice. #Quote by Carl Von Clausewitz
Talent quotes by Pearl Bailey
#132. There are two kinds of talent, man-made talent and God-given talent. With man-made talent you have to work very hard. With God-given talent, you just touch it up once in a while. #Quote by Pearl Bailey
Talent quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#133. You may be very deficient in talent yourself, and yet you may be the means of drawing to Christ one who shall become eminent in grace and service. Ah! dear friend, you little know the possibilities which are in you. You may but speak a word to a child, and in that child there may be slumbering a noble heart which shall stir the Christian church in years to come. Andrew has only two talents, but he finds Peter. Go thou and do likewise. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Talent quotes by Andy Kindler
#134. There's a lot of controversy online, some people say i'm a genius and other say i'm hugely talented. #Quote by Andy Kindler
Talent quotes by Simon Cowell
#135. I have seen that the American Dream is a reality - and I would love to feel the British Dream is also a reality. To enable that, we have to bring back some common sense and encourage family values, a proper sense of justice and make people believe they have a decent chance to build a business or career for themselves. I see this moment as a fantastic opportunity to restore this, because I believe Britain Has Talent. #Quote by Simon Cowell
Talent quotes by Edwin Van Der Sar
#136. It is not always easy for a young player to come through at the club level, because all the clubs are able to buy for 20 million or 30 million and it is hard for young English talent to come through and to get recognition and be able to be part of the squad or start playing. #Quote by Edwin Van Der Sar
Talent quotes by Jean Lorrain
#137. But this is till the same girl who once lived in the steppes, wild and indomitable. Even when she ceased to play in the falling snow, the snow continued to fall within her soul. She never sough lovers among the wealthy men and the crown princes who prostrated themselves before her; her heart, like her voice, remained faultless. The reputation, temperament and talent of the woman partook of exactly the same crystalline transparency and icy clarity. ("The Glass Of Blood") #Quote by Jean Lorrain
Talent quotes by Jim Stynes
#138. Attitude is tremendously important in chasing success - in any field of endeavour. That's why I believe talent alone will get you very little in this world. #Quote by Jim Stynes
Talent quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#139. There's nothing good about being certain about things. And I don't think there's any real talent in using language in a manipulative way, with phrases like "tax relief" or "Social Security reform." It's politically clever, but it's also completely disingenuous, and it's not something to aspire to. #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
Talent quotes by Sidney Crosby
#140. When I saw that goal, the first thing I said was, 'You won't see a goal like that ever again.' It's one thing to have second effort but, on top of that, the athleticism he showed. It's just an example of the talent that he has. #Quote by Sidney Crosby
Talent quotes by Jarod Kintz

Talent quotes by Walt Disney Company
#145. A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive. #Quote by Walt Disney Company
Talent quotes by Susan Ee
#146. Dee checks to make sure his mic is turned off. 'It's not about common sense.' Dee surveys the crowd with some pride.

Dum also checks to make sure his mic is off. 'It's not about logic or practicality or anything that makes a remote amount of sense.' He sports a wide grin.

'That's the whole point of a talent show,' says Dee, doing a spin onstage. 'It's illogical, chaotic, stupid, and a whole hell of a lot of fun.' Dee nods to Dum. 'It's what sets us apart from monkeys. What other species puts on talent shows? #Quote by Susan Ee
Talent quotes by James Comey
#147. In that moment, something else occurred to me: The "leader of the free world," the self-described great business tycoon, didn't understand leadership. Ethical leaders never ask for loyalty. Those leading through fear – like a Cosa Nostra boss- require personal loyalty. Ethical leaders care deeply about those they lead, and offer them honesty and decency, commitment and their own sacrifice. They have a confidence that breeds humility. Ethical leaders know their own talent but fear their own limitations-to understand and reason, to see the world as it is and not as they wish it to be. They speak the truth and know that making wise decisions requires people to tell them the truth. And to get that truth, they create an environment of high standards and deep consideration – "love" is not too strong a word – that builds lasting bonds and makes extraordinary achievement possible. It would never occur to an ethical leader to ask for loyalty. #Quote by James Comey
Talent quotes by Madonna Ciccone
#148. I'm always looking for something new: a new inspiration, a new philosophy, a new way to look at something, new talent. #Quote by Madonna Ciccone
Talent quotes by George Gaylord Simpson
#149. The conflict between science and religion has a single and simple cause. It is the designation as religiously canonical of any conception of the material world open to scientific investigation....As a matter of fact, most of the dogmatic religions have exhibited a perverse talent for taking the wrong side on the most important concepts of the material universe, from the structure of the solar system to the origin of man. The result has been constant turmoil for many centuries, and the turmoil will continue as long as religious canons prejudge scientific questions. #Quote by George Gaylord Simpson
Talent quotes by Multatuli
#150. Since I have the obligation to take care of the needs of my family, I have decided to use a talent which, I believe, has been given to me. I am a poet ... Phew! You know, reader, what I and all sensible people think about that. #Quote by Multatuli
Talent quotes by Kristin Weber
#151. …based on second hand knowledge and first-hand experience, a successful online marketing cocktail looks like this: Equal parts hard work, talent and persistence, shaken for a long, long, long, long time, and some luck skewered onto a toothpick and thrown in for good measure. #Quote by Kristin Weber
Talent quotes by Florence King
#152. Americans respect talent only insofar as it leads to fame, and we reserve our most fervent admiration for famous people who destroy their lives as well as their talent. The fatal flaws of Elvis, Judy, and Marilyn register much higher on our national applause meter than their living achievements. In Amerca, talent is merely a tool for becoming famous in life so you can become more famous in death - where all are equal. #Quote by Florence King
Talent quotes by Delphine Arnault
#153. When you're a young talent, and you want to launch your brand, you always have tons of questions: Where should I produce? Should I launch a second line? Should I do shoes, accessories? If you have someone who can coach you and give you advice and help you find the right supplier, it's a big help. #Quote by Delphine Arnault
Talent quotes by Paul Arden
#154. Talent helps, but it won't take you as far as ambition. #Quote by Paul Arden
Talent quotes by Paromita Goswami

#156. Passion takes you to the mountain foot; talent takes you to the mountaintop; brilliance takes you to the sky; genius takes you to the stars. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Talent quotes by Samuel Smiles
#157. It is not eminent talent that is required to ensure success in any pursuit, so much as purpose-not merely the power to achieve, but the will to labour energetically and perseveringly. Hence energy of will may be defined to be the very central power of character in a man-in a word, it is the Man himself. #Quote by Samuel Smiles
Talent quotes by Steve Ovett
#158. You find out a lot about yourself through athletics. If you're cut out to be a winner or a failure or a quitter, athletics will bring it out of you. You're always stripping yourself down to the bones of your personality. And sometimes you just get a glimpse of the kind of talent you've been given. Sometimes I run and I don't even feel the effort of running. I don't even feel the ground. I'm just drifting. Incredible feeling. All the agony and frustration, they're all justified by one moment like that. #Quote by Steve Ovett
Talent quotes by Irwin Shaw
#159. An absolutely necessary part of a writer's equipment, almost as necessary as talent, is the ability to stand up under punishment, both the punishment the world hands out and the punishment he inflicts upon himself. #Quote by Irwin Shaw

#161. No amount of talents, skills or charisma can sustain us the way integrity, character & attitude does. #Quote by Sidney Mohede
Talent quotes by April Bernard
#162. Here was the same feeling (Anne) had been surprised by so many years ago, when Miss Fuller had died. Everyone was - relieved. Not actually glad that she was dead, perhaps. But surely relieved, relieved of the burden of this impossible woman. Relieved that they no longer would have to read her exhortations to do good, to send money, to think more broadly, to consider the poor and the powerless, to worry over their place in history, to follow her difficult sentences, to wonder if women after all should be allowed to pester them in this way, and to do such things as Miss Fuller did and imagined.
She made everybody angry. Such a terrible talent. #Quote by April Bernard
Talent quotes by Mark  Vaughan
#163. I learned that I knew it (there are some things in life, you knew before you could put the words to them, for me, this was one) upon first seeing the film Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and hearing Lawrence Jamieson (Michael Caine) utter these words:

Freddy, as a younger man, I was a sculptor, a painter, and a musician. There was just one problem: I wasn't very good. As a matter of fact, I was dreadful. I finally came to the frustrating conclusion that I had taste and style, but not talent. I knew my limitations. We all have our limitations, Freddy. Fortunately, I discovered that taste and style were commodities that people desired. Freddy, what I am saying is: know your limitations. You are a moron. #Quote by Mark Vaughan
Talent quotes by Ivan Turgenev
#164. It's no good writing if God hasn't given you talent. People will just laugh. #Quote by Ivan Turgenev
Talent quotes by Beyonce Knowles
#165. I wanted to be famous for my music and my talent, and I always wished I could cut it out when I left the stage. #Quote by Beyonce Knowles
Talent quotes by Ron Jaworski
#166. One of the things I noticed more in this draft than in any recent drafts was the importance of the character issue. Players who had baggage, like Justice, fell much farther than his talent dictated. But a lot of coaches didn't want to take the chance. #Quote by Ron Jaworski
Talent quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#167. And this puts me in mind of that rich gentleman of Rome, who had been solicitous, with great expense, to procure men that were excellent in all sorts of science, whom he had always attending his person, to the end, that when amongst his friends any occasion fell out of speaking of any subject whatsoever, they might supply his place, and be ready to prompt him, one with a sentence of Seneca, another with a verse of Homer, and so forth, every one according to his talent; and he fancied this knowledge to be his own, because it was in the heads of those who lived upon his bounty; as they, also, do whose learning consists in having great libraries. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Talent quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#168. Never despise the talents you have. It is by them that you will do something that has not yet come into existence until you were born. #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Talent quotes by Rainn Wilson
#169. I think that doing comedy and playing Dwight is a service. Not to get grandiose about it, but I have a talent for playing oddball characters and I can make people laugh and that can help bring families together and people will really enjoy it and it puts a smile on their face and I think that is a really great thing. #Quote by Rainn Wilson
Talent quotes by Justin Timberlake
#170. Talent doesn't always equal success. #Quote by Justin Timberlake
Talent quotes by Charlie Peacock
#171. True artists pursue greatness in craft in order to give the Lord the best fruit of the talent He has given them, not to build themselves up. They understand that true greatness is found in the heart of the servant. #Quote by Charlie Peacock

Talent quotes by Alex Johnston
#173. We are delighted that these regulations are now law, and we commend the provincial government for helping put the issue on the front burner. These requirements will push more companies to have the conversations they should be having around board and executive committee diversity and, hopefully, their talent development. Businesses need to tap the full pool of smart, talented people to stay competitive and strengthen our country's economic future. #Quote by Alex Johnston

Talent quotes by Joshua Foer
#178. I Came away from the U.S. Memory Championship eager to find out how Ed and Lukas did it. Were these just extraordinary individuals, pridigies from the long tail of humanity's bell curve, or was there something we could all learn from their talents? #Quote by Joshua Foer
Talent quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
#179. Strive, while improving your one talent, to enrich your whole capital as a man. It is in this way that you escape from the wretched narrow-mindedness which is the characteristic of every one who cultivates his specialty alone. #Quote by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Talent quotes by Dmitry Merezhkovsky
#180. Before us is mighty, so to speak, transformative and preparatory work. From a period which is creative, immediate and elemental, we must proceed to a period which is critical, conscious and cultural. These are the two worlds between which exists the entire abyss. The contemporary generation has the misfortune of being born between these two worlds, before this abyss. Herein is explained its frailty, diseased anxiety, hungry search for new ideals and a certain fateful impotency in all of its efforts. The best youth and vigor of talent is not expended on vital creativity but on an internal destructiveness and struggle with the past, on the passage across the abyss to that land, to that shore, to the frontiers of a free and divine idealism. How many people are perishing in this passage or are losing their strength irrevocably!...

Talent quotes by Louis B. Mayer
#189. The idea of a star being born is bushwa. A star is created, carefully and cold-bloodily, built up from nothing, from nobody. Age, beauty, talent, least of all talent, has nothing to do with it. We could make silk purses out of sows' ears every day of the week. #Quote by Louis B. Mayer

Talent quotes by H.G.Wells
#193. The warm lights that once rounded off our world so completely are betrayed for what they are, smoky and guttering candles. Beyond what once seemed a casket of dutiful security is now a limitless and indifferent universe. Ours is the wisdom or there is no wisdom; ours is the decision or there is no decision. That burthen is upon each of us in the measure of our capacity. The talent has been given us and we may not bury it. #Quote by H.G.Wells
Talent quotes by Barack Obama
#194. We [Americans] are a nation of immigrants. We all understand what this country has become because talent from all around the world wants to come here, people who are willing to take risks, people who want to build on their dreams and make sure their kids have an - even bigger dreams than they have. #Quote by Barack Obama
Talent quotes by John Fante
#195. I stretched out on the bed and slept. It was twilight when I awakened and turned on the light. I felt better, no longer tired. I went to the typewriter and sat before it. My thought was to write a sentence, a single perfect sentence. If I could write one good sentence I could write two and if I could write two I could write three, and if I could write three I could write forever. But suppose I failed? Suppose I had lost all of my beautiful talent? Suppose it had burned up in the fire of Biff Newhouse smashing my nose or Helen Brownell dead forever? What would happen to me? Would I go to Abe Marx and become a busboy again? I had seventeen dollars in my wallet. Seventeen dollars and the fear of writing. I sat erect before the typewriter and blew on my fingers. Please God, please Knut Hamsun, don't desert me now. I started to write and I wrote:
"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes - and ships - and sealing wax -
Of cabbages - and kings - "
I looked at it and wet my lips. It wasn't mine, but what the hell, a man had to start someplace. #Quote by John Fante
Talent quotes by Willa Cather

Talent quotes by Richard Bausch
#198. I don't teach writing. I teach patience. Toughness. Stubbornness. The willingness to fail. I teach the life. The odd thing is most of the things that stop an inexperienced writer are so far from the truth as to be nearly beside the point. When you feel glosbal doubt about your talent, that is your talent.
