Chapter 9, Page 20, Book 17

I believe that life is a journey, often difficult and sometimes incredibly cruel, but we are well equipped for it if only we tap into our talents and gifts and allow them to blossom.

Les Brown

Cultivate your talents

 Use what talent you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best.

Talent does not mean you have to be an artist who paints masterpieces, or a gymnast who does flips. Talent resides within each of us, right now, in many different ways.

Hide not your talents.They for use were made. What's a sundial in the shade.

Benjamin Franklin

Caring for others is a talent, teaching is a talent, making people feel welcome is a talent, solving problems is a talent and parenting is a talent.

It is a happy talent to know how to play. 

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Never underestimate your talents and try not to compare or wish for the talents of others. Focus on and accept the talents you have, and you will find greater fulfillment in life.

As simple as it sounds, we all must try to be the best person we can: by making the best choices, by making the most of the talents we've been given. 

Mary Lou Retton

I liked the quote from Les Brown. So true! It is good to discover what our talents are and then to use them to the best of our abilities.



It is important to be the best you you can be. "Cultivate your talents."
