Talent is a cistern; genius, a fountain.
      - Edwin Percy Whipple

Talent repeats; genius creates. Talent is a cistern;, genius a fountain. Talent deals with the actual, with discovered and realised truths, analyzing, arranging, combining, applying positive knowledge, and in action looking to precedents; genius deals with the possible, creates new combinations, discovers new laws, and acts from an insight into principles. Talent jogs to conclusions to which genius takes giant leaps. Talent accumulates knowledge, and has it packed up in the memory; genius assimilates it with its own substance, grows with every new accession, and converts knowledge into power. Talent gives out what it has taken in; genius what has risen from its unsounded wells of living thought. Talent, in difficult situations, strives to untie knots, which genius instantly cuts with one swift decision. Talent is full of thoughts, genius of thought; one has definite acquisitions, the other indefinite power.
      - Edwin Percy Whipple

Put your talent into your work, but your genius into your life.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)

Talents, to strike the eye of posterity, should be concentrated. Rays, powerless while they are scattered, burn in a point.
      - Robert Aris Willmott

With the talents of an angel a man may be a fool.
      - Edward Young
