Not every painter has a gift for painting, in fact, many painters are disappointed when they meet with difficulties in art. Painting done under pressure by artists without the necessary talent can only give rise to formlessness, as painting is a profession that requires peace of mind. The painter must always seek the essence of things, always represent the essential characteristics and emotions of the person he is painting...
I believe that since my life began The most I've had is just A talent to amuse. Heigho, if love were all!
Mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself, but talent instantly recognises genius.Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
It's not enough to be Hungarian, you must have talent too.Irving Kristol
If a man has a talent and cannot use it, he has failed.If he has a talent and uses only half of it, he has partly failed.If he has a talent and learns somehow to use the whole of it, he has gloriously succeeded, and won a satisfaction and a triumph few men ever know.Thomas Clayton Wolfe

This is a new land - a land of pretension because it is new; because classes and systems have not had that time to grow here naturally. We have no aristocracy but of virtue and talent, which is the only true aristocracy, and is the old and true meaning of the term. (Hear, hear.)thomas d'arcy mcgee
Liza, in terms of sheer talent, just oozes with it. She has sheer energy and stamina, which she gets across the stage, and the way she delivers herself to the public is a good influence. There is a lot to learn from herfreddie mercury
With ordinary talent and extraordinary perseverance, all things are attainable.
It is a very rare thing for a man of talent to succeed by his talent.joseph roux
For more than twenty years he [Blanchard] toiled on through the most fatiguing paths of literary composition, mostly in periodicals, often anonymously; pleasing and lightly instructing thousands, but gaining none of the prizes, whether of weighty reputation or popular renown, which more fortunate chances, or more pretending modes of investing talent, have given in our day to men of half his merits.samuel laman blanchard
Porgy is…an interesting example of what can be done by talent in spite of a bad setup. With a libretto that should never have been accepted on a subject that should never have been chosen, a man who should never have attempted it has written a work that has a considerable power.virgil thomson
Whatever question there may be of his [Thoreau's] talent, there can be none, I think, of his genius. It was a slim and crooked one; but it was eminently personal. He was imperfect, unfinished, inartistic; he was worse than provincial he was parochial; it is only at his best that he is readable.Henry James
Marcos was not a smoker, he was not known as a drinker, he didn’t swear the strongest expression of irritation people would hear from him was “Lintik!” And he was not much more of a womanizer than most men of his generation and macho culture like to think themselves to be. He was not tall, but trim and athletic for most of his life: a marksman, orator, armed with a photographic memory. Surely we can agree he was a man of talent; we continue to disagree whether he used those talents for anything larger than his own ambitions.Ferdinand Edralin Marcos
Journalism attracts people with exceptional linguistic talent, but I have found that very few have the mathematical sophistication to appreciate the difference between skill and luck.
It's a historical phenomenon that in 250 years, a nation could move from a colony into the most prosperous nation of the world and the leader of the world. It is indeed an achievement, a tribute to the talent of the American nation, the American people and an optimal political and economic system.
Entre esprit et talent il y a la proportion du tout à sa partié.
Just because you haven't found your talent yet doesn't mean you don't have one.Kermit the Frog
