Love is, above all, the gift of oneself.
I've viewed myself as slightly above average in talent. And where I excel is ridiculous, sickening work ethic.
What you need, above all else, is a love for your subject, whatever it is. You've got to be so deeply in love with your subject that when curve balls are thrown, when hurdles are put in place, you've got the energy to overcome them.
Neil deGrasse Tyson

For above all things Love means sweetness, and truth, and measure; yea, loyalty to the loved one and to your word. And because of this I dare not meddle with so high a matter.
Marie de France
