Talent

Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to nurture it in solitude and follow the talent to the dark places where it leads.

Everyone has talent, yes. And courage is not to nurture it, just coz you have it. Courage is to say balls to it and walk away... and do what your heart tells you to do, even though you're least talented in what you truly wanna do.
The sad part about everything is that everyone thinks that it is a crime to not pursue what you're talented in.
Bullshit.
Like I';ve said in my posts several times before. This journey of life we all go through isn't about learning. It's about unlearning all the bullshit our society, parents, friends and teachers have pumped into our heads.

If u thought talent was mugging up for the exams and making people around you happy you are mistaken... talent can also be what YOU enjoy doing most... can't it? Talent is wrongly used as a synonym for learning...otherwise you have a talent in writing conman, you should stop writing! ;-)
