Talent quotes
Talent
The greatest wastes are unused talents and untried ideas.

[Abstract art is] a product of the untalented, sold by the unprincipled to the utterly bewildered.

- Al Capp
In spite of my great admiration for individual splendid talents I do not accept the star system. Collective creative effort is the root of our kind of art. That requires ensemble acting and whoever mars that ensemble is committing a crime not only against his comrades but also against the very art of which he is the servant.

- Stanislavisky, Konstantin
You have to have a talent for having talent.

- Ruth Gordon
Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

- Calvin Coolidge
In order to acquire a growing and lasting respect in society, it is a good thing, if you possess great talent, to give, early in your youth, a very hard kick to the right shin of the society that you love. After that, be a snob.

- Dali, Salvador
Perseverance is the most overrated of traits, if it is unaccompanied by talent; beating your head against a wall is more likely to produce a concussion in the head than a hole in the wall.

- Harris, Sidney J.
Is your love for the Lord sufficient to give all your time and talents to his work?

Nature is the master of talents; genius is the master of nature.

- Holland, Josiah Gilbert
The talent of success is nothing more than doing what you can do well, and doing well whatever you do.

- Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
If I have ever made any valuable discoveries, it has been owing more to patient attention, than to any other talent.

- Isaac Newton
What mankind wants is not talent; it is purpose.

- Bulwer-Lytton, Edward G.
If you have great talents, industry will improve them: if you have but moderate abilities, industry will supply their deficiency.

- Sir Joshua Reynolds
His talent was as natural as the pattern that was made by the dust on a butterfly's wings. At one time he understood it no more than the butterfly did and he did not know when it was brushed or marred.

- Ernest Hemingway
Imagination is not a talent of some people but is the health of everyone.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Talent develops in quiet places, character in the full current of human life.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
The most valuable of all talents is that of never using two words when one will do.

- Thomas Jefferson
Natural ability without education has more often attained to glory and virtue than education without natural ability.

- Cicero
You can't rely just on talent to win.

- Young, Scott
Death cancels everything but truth; and strips a man of everything but genius and virtue. It is a sort of natural canonization. It makes the meanest of us sacred --it installs the poet in his immortality, and lifts him to the skies. Death is the greatest assayer of the sterling ore of talent. At his touch the dropsy particles fall off, the irritable, the personal, the gross, and mingle with the dust --the finer and more ethereal part mounts with winged spirit to watch over our latest memory, and protect our bones from insult. We consign the least worthy qualities to oblivion, and cherish the nobler and imperishable nature with double pride and fondness.

- Hazlitt, William
