What Constitutes Talent?
I still recall my final year of university with restrained enthusiasm.
I wrote my final paper on a prominent figure whom I admired at the time. I firmly recall a passage from a book loaned to me, which was translated from Italian to English. It said of the person, “He was so talented that even the blind were aware of him.” I felt it was a fitting description for a person of great talent.
That passage has stuck with me for seventeen years, etched in to my mind as a measure of an individual’s influence on the world.
