The Falacy of Talent

Let us not worship at the altar of Talent. It is a false idol. Rather, marvel at the power of human learning. Talent is not a divinely bestowed gift reserved for a select few. To believe so is akin to believing the earth is the center of the universe and the planets, gods traveling across the mantle of night.

  1. I cannot agree more. I think saying someone talented is and adjative as in saying someone is smart. It is vague and misleading. An artist, or any other profession really, must work hard so the result is fruitful. There’s no way around it.
