Prodigy Quotations

For every child prodigy that you know about, at least 50 potential ones have burned out before you even heard about them.
Itzhak Perlman

The Internet will win because it is relentless. Like a cannibal, it even turns on it own. Though early portals like Prodigy and AOL once benefited from their first-mover status, competitors surpassed them as technology and consumer preferences changed.
John Sununu

My older brother was a musical prodigy, and he got a scholarship to the Bronx House Music School. We moved to the Bronx when I was 4 to be close to his music school. Then I got a music scholarship myself, at the age of 6, but that was for a school down in Greenwich Village. I had to take the elevated train and then the subway to get there.
Mildred S. Dresselhaus

I have never considered myself a prodigy. Others have used that term, but I never bought in to it.

Everybody hates a prodigy, detests an old head on young shoulders.
