I'm still getting comments on the quotation about Talent in this post. I also shared it with the Alternative Quilt List members. I am amazed at the variety of response it has prompted, and that people are drawn to so many different parts of it for discussion. So far, no one has commented on the quotation in yesterday's post here on Channeling. Are we so unsure of our talents that we have no problem with that particular concept?
Here is the last of the quotations I wished to share. All of these were used in an article highlighting three local artists who accidentally "discovered natural inclinations and unleashed their inner artists." How do you think it relates to the concepts represented in the other two quotations?
"If people knew how hard I worked to get my mastery, it wouldn't seem so wonderful at all." - Michelangelo
