Watch the walls come down, whether it's in the South or on Wall Street. When the walls come down, what do we find? More markets, more talent, more capital and growth. Which means that the race and sex discrimination stunt economic growth. It's not good for capitalism. It's not good for America's growth. And it's not morally right.
I grew up on the rough side of the tracks. If you looked like you were soft, you would be fodder for the wolves. I came up in my neighbourhood like, 'I'm just gonna be me,' and all the thugs just said, 'It's OK, he's special.' They knew I had the talent with the rhymes, so they kept me around.
Hard work pays off - hard work beats talent any day, but if you're talented and work hard, it's hard to be beat.
Robert Griffin III
In an individual sport, yes, you have to win titles. Baseball's different. But basketball, hockey? One person can control the tempo of a game, can completely alter the momentum of a series. There's a lot of great individual talent.
It is happy for you that you possess the talent of flattering with delicacy. May I ask whether these pleasing attentions proceed from the impulse of the moment, or are they the result of previous study?
What I lack in talent, I compensate with my willingness to grind it out. That's the secret of my life.
I think there are those individuals who are intimidated by really smart, talented people. But for me, surrounding yourself with great talent is the key to success.
There is a certain amount of dissatisfaction that goes with knowing your time, talent and abilities are not being properly used.
I'd rather have a lot of talent and a little experience than a lot of experience and a little talent.
Above everything else I've done, I've always said I've had more guts than I've got talent.
There are two kinds of talent, man-made talent and God-given talent. With man-made talent you have to work very hard. With God-given talent, you just touch it up once in a while.
The bias against introversion leads to a colossal waste of talent, energy, and happiness.
Some people possess talent, others are possessed by it. When that happens, a talent becomes a curse.
Too many people chase dreams that they don't understand. Too many people try to go for things that they'd like to do, but they're not realistic enough to know they don't have the talent.
I think that when you are in the limelight it is part of your obligation to be a good role model. A lot of kids look up to you, and you are given a God-given talent, so it is your responsibility. It isn't hard to deal with. I never have to think twice about doing anything.
When I speak of natural drummers I'm talking about guys that are playing with the talent God gave 'em.
With tennis, you can go pick up a racket, take a lesson, and understand how much talent and skill it takes to be as good as the top pros. Same with golf: pick up a club. But not many can go out and get in a race car and experience a drive at over 200 miles an hour.
I was really young, just playing with puppets a lot and doing all the voices and acting it out - normal kid stuff. But then I'd hear my mother talking about it to her relatives, marveling at it as if it was something unique. And it made me realize, 'Oh, maybe I do have a talent for something.'

Music is your own talent and is an important tool. Even if you don't want to be a role model, get ready to be in the public eye. Energy is there, you just have to use it.
Basketball talent is basketball talent, no matter if it comes from the suburbs or the city. Take the time to know and understand me before you judge me. Only God can do that. Roses do grow from concrete!
Doing easily what others find difficult is talent; doing what is impossible for talent is genius.
Henri Frederic Amiel
Does anybody really think that they didn't get what they had because they didn't have the talent or the strength or the endurance or the commitment?
With people of limited ability modesty is merely honesty. But with those who possess great talent it is hypocrisy.
More men fail through lack of purpose than lack of talent.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
