After my ramblings yesterday on the subject of talent, it seemed very timely that my teabag offered up this quotation this morning:
“Your talent is as great as you practice it to be” Keisha J. McLean
I have no idea who Keisha J. McLean is…..but in my Googling attempts to find out (which I never did) I came across several other bloggers who were also struck by the wisdom of Keisha.
It meshes rather nicely with one of my all-time favorite quotes, by Sydney Harris:
“Self discipline without talent can often achieve astounding results, whereas talent without self-discipline inevitably dooms itself to failure.”
I have had this posted in my studio for many years. I need to read it regularly, as self-discipline is not my greatest virtue.
