Of course, he started off writing a lot of horror books, but he really branched into many areas, and he's probably the most well known modern-day writer. That's still alive. Okay. Anyway. Let's continue. Let's look at his quote. Here's the quote. " Talent is cheaper than table, "salt And table salt, of course is supposed to be very cheap. "What separates the talented from the successful one is a lot of hard work. " Okay. Let's look at the note here. What Stephen King is trying to say is that even though talent is great and it is surely an advantage over others who are not so talented , it cannot lead to success by itself. Without a strong work ethic or determination, many of us will fall short of our expectations. There are many who were born with great talents that never become fruitful. So they never produce anything. Never really become that successful. This idea is similar with Thomas Edison's quote " Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. " Yeah this was an earlier quote. I did quite a while ago. Again remember, his, his point is that the inspiration is the idea that you come up with , but it's really the perspiration represented sweat. Which represented hard work. So it's right along the same line. Okay. Let's continue. In life many people like to use talent of others as an excuse as to why those few are successful and they are not. Not realizing that talent must also be backed up by effort and determination. Yeah. So again the talent can't do it by itself. It has to be supported, It has to be backed up by effort and determination. Sometimes hard work can even make up for a lack of talent. Not completely , but it can help. More hard work sometimes can overcome some lack of talent. Okay. Anyway I hope it's clear. I hope you got it. I hope you enjoyed it. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
