  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Quotes 186. Today, the quote is by

  • Stephen King he's an American author probably the most famous American author

  • in our modern times today. 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.
