J. Paul Getty
I think we judge talent wrong. What do we see as talent? I think I have made the same mistake myself. We judge talent by people's ability to strike a cricket ball. The sweetness, the timing.

When you see a rattlesnake poised to strike, you do not wait until he has struck to crush him.
