Toil to make yourself remarkable by some talent or other.


Hide not your talents, they for use were made. What's a sun-dial in the shade?

Benjamin Franklin

Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow the talent to the dark place where it leads.

Erica Jong

Whatever talents I possess may suddenly diminish or suddenly increase. I can with ease become an ordinary fool. I may be one now. But it doesn't do to upset one's own vanity.

Dylan Thomas

Whatever you are by nature, keep to it; never desert your line of talent. Be what nature intended you for and you will succeed.

Sydney Smith

Getting ahead in a difficult profession requires avid faith in yourself. That is why some people with mediocre talent, but with great inner drive, go much further than people with vastly superior talent.

Sophia Loren

Those who are blessed with the most talent don't necessarily outperform everyone else. It's the people with follow-through who excel.

Mary Kay Ash

Talent is God given. Be humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful.

John Wooden

Natural ability without education has more often attained to glory and virtue than education without natural ability.


Talent, like beauty, to be pardoned, must be obscure and unostentatious.

Marguerite Gardiner

Tremendous amounts of talent are lost to our society just because that talent wears a skirt.

Shirley Chisholm

You have to have confidence in your ability, and then be tough enough to follow through.

No man can discover his own talents.

Brendan Francis

An actress must never lose her ego - without it she has no talent.

Tom Lehrer

Great things are accomplished by talented people who believe they will accomplish them.

Warren G. Bennis

Perhaps no hall of comparable size anywhere has served so nobly as a spawning ground for young talent and, it must be said, as a graveyard for the hopes of the mediocre.

Donal Henahan

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

Henry Van Dyke

If you have a talent, use it in every which way possible. Don't hoard it. Don't dole it out like a miser. Spend it lavishly like a millionaire intent on going broke.

Brendan Francis

Put yourself on view. This brings your talents to light.

Baltasar Gracian

My bad habits aren't my title, my strengths and talents are my title.

Layne Staley

Talent will out, my dears.

Freddie Mercury

We are always more anxious to be distinguished for a talent which we do not possess, than to be praised for the fifteen which we do possess.

Mark Twain

Make no display of your talents or attainments; for every one will clearly see, admire, and acknowledge them, so long as you cover them with the beautiful veil of modesty.

Nathaniel Emmons

A talented trumpeter who toots his own horn winds up playing to an empty theatre. A talented trumpeter who lets others recognize his talent winds up a legend.

Lisa Edmondson

No matter what, ALWAYS BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. Any doubts must be put out of your mind. If you find yourself thinking something negative, figure out who it was who put that thought in your head... then acknowledge that it's not your thought, push it out of your mind, and say, "I'm awesome!"

Christine Anderson

The luck of having talent is not enough; one must also have a talent for luck.

Louis hector Berlioz

The first thing they were told was how to hone their talent. Then they were told how to market their talent, discipline their talent and type their talent. And then they were told they might as well forget about talent.

Esther B. Fein

Decisions are made by people who have time, not people who have talent.

...probably the greatest concentration of talent and genius in this house except for perhaps those times when Thomas Jefferson ate alone.

John F. Kennedy

Luck is only important insofar as getting the chance to sell yourself at the right moment. After that, you've got to have talent and know how to use it.

Frank Sinatra

Widespread intellectual and moral docility may be convenient for leaders in the short term, but it is suicidal for nations in the long term. One of the criteria for national leadership should therefore be a talent for understanding, encouraging, and making constructive use of vigorous criticism.

Carl Sagan

Stupidity is a talent for misconception.

Edgar Allan Poe

His talent was as natural as the pattern that was made by the dust on a butterfly's wings. At one time he understood it no more than the butterfly did and he did not know when it was brushed or marred.

Ernest Hemingway

Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.

Michael Jordan

Nothing in the world will take away persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than an unsuccessful man with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.

Calvin Coolidge

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

Calvin Coolidge

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

Calvin Coolidge

A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.

Walt Disney

Concealed talent brings no reputation.

Desiderius Erasmus

Men fail much oftener from want of perseverance than from want of talent.

William Cobbett

Talent is like a faucet; while it is open, you have to write. Inspiration? - a hoax fabricated by poets for their self-importance.

Work while you have the light. You are responsible for the talent that has been entrusted to you.

Henri Frederic Amiel

Literature is an occupation in which you have to keep proving your talent to people who have none.

Jules Renard

Talent develops in tranquillity, character in the full current of human life.

We are told that talent creates its own opportunities. But it sometimes seems that intense desire creates not only its own opportunities, but its own talents.

Eric Hoffer

I really don't know. They are just talent (scouts).

Aya Traore

When I examine myself and my methods of thought, I come to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than any talent for abstract, positive thinking.

Albert Einstein

We have reached a level with our program that we should be in the Top 5 in the nation every year. Our goal is to have an Olympic-level program. We have the talent to be that if our kids are mentally tough, work hard and are disciplined.

Vladimir Nazlymov

Hard work without talent is a shame, but talent without hard work is a tragedy.

Robert Half

A book is never a masterpiece: it becomes one. Genius is the talent of a dead man.

Carl Sandburg

The key advantages of the city should be built on. It could be financial capital, the talent pool or connectivity with other parts of the country and the world.

Michael Charlton

David is a very good athlete who can score, rebound and block shots. We're excited that he chose Northern Kentucky University. He was regarded by several recruiting services as one of the top 100 high school players, so he has a great deal of talent and ability.

Dave Bezold

The only real talent Miss Day possesses is that of being absolutely sanitary: her personality untouched by human emotions, her brow unclouded by human thought, her form unsmudged by the slightest form of femininity.

Sir John Simon

He's a perfect fit. He's going to stretch the court for us. He has speed and over the top scoring ability. There are a lot of things that you can talk about a long time with him concerning his ability, talent and athleticism.

Carroll Dawson

It's a high-energy team. We have some great freshman talent and they bring a lot of energy, too.

Krista Rappahahn

I think we might not have as much talent on our defense this year, but I think we have much better team players this year. Guys aren't going out there and freelancing. They're spending more time in film study and playing good assignment defense the only way it should be played, and that's at 100 miles per hour.

Grant Wistrom

I think we kind of need to regroup and get back to how we know how to play. Because as far as talent and as far as who's the better team, we're better than they are this year, and so the reason that we're losing games is our own fault.

Cyndy Kenyon

Talent hits a target no one else can hit; Genius hits a target no one else can see.

Arthur Schopenhauer

We've got the talent to make it. We've got the skills and the fundamentals. We are playing better as a unit. Hopefully, we'll be focused enough to pull out a win.

Sally Shurtz

This tournament will be a really good test for us. I know we have the talent on this team to do something special. Many feel this can be one of our best teams we've had around here.

Randy Halcomb

For one thing, I didn't know he had all that. I never saw him do it in practice. He's got a lot of talent. He gave me an opportunity to see what he can do.

Moses Malone

We're better than we've been since I've been here, but we're also more disappointed, because we have the talent to be over .500. You just have to stick with it and fight through it. Who knows how good this team can be or where we'll finish up?

Mike Dunleavy

All of our losses have been because we partly beat ourselves and partly because we just failed to step up to the challenge. We have the talent. We just have to do it.

Jason Fife

Clearly we think we [also] have a lot of creative talent and we have technology and a lot of things that are available to ... make our movies ... just as successful.

Dick Cook

Jake, I'll guarantee you, will do really well. He was indecisive in Arizona, and sometimes he made bad decisions, but he never had the talent around him that he does now. A lot of the interceptions he threw last year were to younger receivers he didn't trust as much, so he hesitated before throwing the pass. Now he's in a great system where that won't be a problem.

David Boston

I don't want my body to be a distraction from my talent or my brain.

Shania Twain

Ideas are a capital that bears interest only in the hands of talent.

Antoine Rivarol

Between the two schools, we've had great running backs, but Lorenzo is probably No. 1. I'm not going to sit here and lie to you. I can judge talent, too.

Jamie Morris

'We Gonna Win' is a song of triumph, ... It represents my personal belief that with hard work, talent and dedication, everything is possible. It's a one of a kind marriage between rap and classical music, where the music doesn't accompany the vocalist, but rather stands on its own.

Miri Ben ari

He is a great talent with special qualities, a very promising central defender who possesses a good mentality and who will further enhance our growing squad.

Frank Arnesen

We're happy with how it has gone. We wanted to do a couple of things this spring. We wanted to evaluate talent and get a good handle on who the guys are. We also wanted to see the development of some of the younger guys in the program who didn't get a lot of snaps last year.

Andy Coen

Showed some artistic talent.

John Mcgovern

It's not something that natural talent plays as much a part in as drive. The guys that join are relatively good athletes who just didn't want to pursue their sport in college.

Scott Perry

I would say so. In the modern era, running up win streaks is difficult. This is unusual because of the balance there is in college football. The population explosion has given, in my opinion, better facilities and coaching techniques has produced outstanding talent for a lot of teams.

Ara Parseghian

We, if we were to choose, would rather have home grown talent that is trained through the grassroots, through the elite level, than an Olympian.

Bob Condron

It's scary talent-wise that she can get that much better when she's a senior. As long as they keep a decent supporting cast around her, they're always going to be a top team.

Scott Crawford

My talent and work ethic will get me there.

Armein Kirkland

I see a kind of renewed spirit around the yacht clubs, which is a very encouraging sign. I'm also encouraged these days about the Olympics. It looks like the pure part of the sport — it's nationalistic and it's a nice clean competition. So I see a lot of this young talent that we have will likely gravitate to the various Olympic classes and they'll represent us very well.

Gary Jobson

Talent is more visible now across various functional silos, so your boss may know where the opportunities for advancement are -- not just in his or her area but in others areas as well.

Jim Kochanski

There is great talent in the state of Colorado, and we will build with Colorado players. But we will also supplement that talent with players from out-of-state.

Scott Downing

There are always, in every community, those who have a passion about their talent. And we just find each other. These groups are an entry level and can grow into something big.

Gilbert Barrera

I think Marlon is a special talent. There's nothing that could stop him from becoming an outstanding big league ballplayer, not an average big league ballplayer.

Tom Mccraw

[DECATUR — There could be a long-awaited changing of the guard atop the 1 AA Conference this season.] Personally, I think Greenland is the team to beat, ... They're loaded with a lot of talent at the skill positions. Charleston is always going to be right in the thick of it, but Greenland looks pretty tough.

John Mcgowan

This year's crop of North Texas ODP players boasts some of the best youth talent in the country. They have a number of Regional and National Team players on that squad. It should be a very good match for our team.

Jaime Frias

Washington, for all his huge talent, is a natural forward, and we have an abundance of forwards in our team.

Lito Alvarez

The last two years, even though she hasn't been surrounded by great talent, she has made that talent play better each night out.

Carlton Greene

It was really a team effort. We had a great season. It's the first winning season in a while. We lose eight seniors and we lose a lot of talent and a lot of leadership.

Amy Wright

We're going to have to go out there and earn it, though. We had a lot of guys coming back this year. It doesn't matter how few guys you lose, the chemistry always changes. Talent only gets you so far. Chemistry ... has to come with it.

Chris Petersen

This marks the first real significant meet for us this season. There's big competition. It's always been low-key local stuff. This is really our first big weekend to showcase our talent.

Jennifer Joyce

Genius is talent set on fire by courage.

Henry Van Dyke

We've got the talent ... but we're still young and we're still learning. I figure in another couple of weeks, we'll be swinging pretty good. We just need more experience in competition and more hard work.

Jeff Lewis

As for the source of the music, I believe it comes from the unconscious; that there is no such thing as talent.

John Fahey

What he's going to do (in the WBC) is show a lot of people that he can compete at a very high level and elevate everyone's opinion of the baseball talent in China. When he's hitting well, he is a fun guy to watch.

Jim Lefebvre

Watching the talent, enthusiasm and the dedication of all the students reinforced why I chose this profession 20 years ago.

Chris Shaw

We may not have as much offensively gifted talent. But we have more depth up front. As the season progresses we can become an even better team than last year.

Dan Rose

Patti is very adept at putting colors and designs together. She has a true talent for the display garden. Her ability to chose colors and textures ? I think she is beyond compare.

Nancy Kuhajda

I think if they would've given him a couple more years, he would've had it. He's starting to get talent in the program.

Kevin Freeman

Any way you look at it, these games are really important for all the teams teams. The winner still has a chance, and the loser goes home. We have a lot of talent on this team. We can win.

Leno Rivera

It's a matter of experience over talent, and we were very inexperienced. I'm proud of this team. The season was very successful. I have no regrets except we lost this last game.

Tom Thacker

I'm blessed with talent and great kids.

Christine Bochnak

Needless to say, I'm very excited about a partnership with Sporting News Radio. Sporting News Radio is a heritage brand with fantastic talent. Under its new leadership, there is no doubt it will be a tremendous success.

David Landau

I'm the only guy in the jazz business who made it without any talent!

Bob Crosby

You must keep sending work out; you must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head off in a drawer. You send that work out again and again, while you're working on another one. If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success - but only if you persist.

Isaac Asimov

I knew she had the athletic talent to play there. She had the arm and range to do the things I needed the shortstop to do.

Dave Thompson

We look objectively at the criteria, and there is still not the same density [of talent] on the women's side that there is on the men's side. For the moment, we are focusing on just the winners.

Stephane Simean

Defensively, we have to have the first man on the scene make the play. If we miss tackles or blow assignments, they have the talent to make you look bad.

Tony Travis

There are specific technologies and knowledge required to be good at any one of the areas we do. We found ourselves with talent in every one of those areas.

Bob Weber

Culpepper is leaving some big shoes to fill, but we have a lot of talent here in northeastern North Carolina. White and Spears are both extremely qualified.

Chris Hardee

The key for us down the stretch is going to be our balance. We have a lot of talent, but we need to step up and play as a team.

Fred Thacher

Obviously, we did it today, and hopefully it can continue rolling through the season, ... We've got a lot of offensive talent and a lot of defensive talent, and with that talent we are going to score some goals.

Genmichael Hayden

We're still young. We will have better depth hopefully, and they are one year more familiar with the high school style game. We know we've got talent. The challenge is putting them together and having them gel as a team and perform as a team.

Reza Ghasemi

They have a lot of talent and they're going to be good. They played some good teams early on. They took their beating and after that they learned from it.

Will Blalock

It's hard to look at their talent now, compared to their record, with all of the circumstances and things that they've gone through. It's a team that's certainly shown that they can be competitive, and I would look forward to that challenge.

Sean Payton

If I have ever made any valuable discoveries, it has been owing more to patient attention, than to any other talent.

Isaac Newton

The failure of woman to produce genius of the first rank in most of the supreme forms of human effort has been used to block the way of all women of talent and ambition for intellectual achievement in a manner that would be amusingly absurd were it n.

Anna Garlin Spencer

We weren't supposed to win it, so the monkey wasn't on our back. That makes a huge difference in this game. I knew we had enough talent that we could win it. And we did.

Nell Fookes

She was the obvious choice, the No. 1 choice of all parties. They recognized what kind of talent she would bring to the board.

Rodger Smith

We've got quite a diversity on our team this year. On one side-the boys-we have loads of talent and experience with all the guys back from last year. But the girls team is the most inexperienced group I've ever had.

John Watson

I'm glad that larger companies are spending their time, talent and money in such exotic areas, because they have left a wide-open field for us that we are fully exploiting.

Jeffrey Lipton

He has an extraordinary degree of talent and passion, and he was a little wild man. My job was simply to channel his passion, not to create it.

Lee Olsen

It takes talent, heart, desire, determination, anything you can think of. It's how bad you want it. So in 20 or 30 years or when we're dead and gone, it's like we immortalized ourselves. Nobody can take it away from us. We'll have this forever.

Jonathan Mitchell

I've never seen so many left-handers. There's plenty of talent, I'll tell you that.

Jim Lett

I'm really confident about this season as we have a great squad here, with great team spirit and fantastic talent. I really believe we'll go from strength to strength.

Patrick Vieira

That team is full of talent, ... We really won on the defensive end. If we play together, we can be a tough team this year.

Jermaine O'neal

The horse was loaded with talent, and we knew it. When he was sold, it took me a few months to get over it.

John Brocklebank

Having an inspiring talent like Andrew on our team makes it an exciting place for all of us to not only work, but to learn and grow. This is a prestigious competition with a tradition of producing great work, and I know he will do us proud.

David Eastman

The great thing about using the Internet and these various sites [to scout for talent] is that you can reach into that audience and find a person that already has 100,000 followers.

Boyd Peterson

It's not my priority to get kids a Division I ride. It's just a plus when they get that opportunity. Kyle has a special talent and he is fortunate to be able to use it to get an education. He has put in a lot of hours and he deserves it.

Thurman Bell

We were extremely pleased with Eddie's progress and development last season. He is a player who has a wealth of talent and potential, and we believe that he will continue to improve and become an impact player for us.

Kevin Mchale

It's rare a team has a Cinderella year where they have a lot of losing seasons and then all of a sudden make it to the playoffs, unless you can go out and buy a bunch of talent. For us, that's one of our stepping stones. We want to get to .500 and keep moving from there.

Bill Hall

The study underscores the critical role universities play in a country's national innovation system, not just in the training of new scientists and access to the best talent, but in the ease of developing and licensing technology.

Carl Schramm

If you're going to trade a guy of that caliber, you're not going to get the same caliber of talent in return.

Greg Anthony

Genius is the gold in the mine; talent is the miner who works and brings it out.

Marguerite Blessington

I feel lucky. The difference between starting a new program at another school and starting a program at Benet is that we have talent.

Amy Van Eekeren

Duran's a playmaker. He's a super athlete with a lot of talent. We have a lot of other talented guys, and Conner decided to take them away and blitz a lot, so Duran had room to make plays. He makes great decisions, and he's a total player from top to bottom.

Dave Trosper

That's one of the reasons we're starting the league, ... One, to increase the popularity in gymnastics. Down the line, we want to put some organizations together for the inner city youth. There's so much talent that I saw in the inner city.

Patricia Golden

If the foreign talent cannot get into the United States or faces considerable delays in doing so, companies are in effect forced to go overseas to get it.

Richard Florida

Outside of those last couple guys that are still in question, Ohio State's staff has to love this class. I think it has probably been underrated in most corners, but the only critical thing I see is that it would have been nice to have a couple more offensive linemen - but that's it. They've got everything else covered with outstanding talent.

Duane Long

It's not a talent issue. He's got a damn rocket for an arm. He throws the hardest ball I've ever caught.

Rob Konrad

I'll always be there because I'm a skilled professional actor. Whether or not I've any talent is beside the point.

Michael Caine

Jake is a great talent, ... He's the prototypical quarterback - great size, great arm. He is somebody that should be reckoned with in Delaware as a pure passer.

Jeff Weiner

This is the strongest array of talent we've had at the festival, and we've never been able to announce so many names so far in advance.

Jody Kielbasa

We do a lot of brainstorming with our talent base of 6,500 experts globally.

Faith Popcorn

There's going to be more talent to come.

Manny T. Lopez

Nostalgia is the bane of rock 'n' roll. He had the courage to let it all hang out. ... He was a considerable talent.

Jim Derogatis

I've always said we have to find unconventional ways to find talent. And if we just depend on the draft to find talent, then we would be sitting five years from now waiting for Santa Claus to come.

New York Knicks

I'm very impressed with Sacred Heart and how well they are coached and how patient they are on both offense and defense. They have really shown a lot of talent and seem to make some good decisions and work hard on both ends of the court.

Mark Keeler

Getting picked to finish fourth or fifth in the ACC was like a slap in the face to us. That was based solely on teams having more talent than us, but that doesn't mean they're better than us. You can't look at what people had in the preseason anymore, though -- you have to evaluate teams on what they're doing right now.

Daniel Ewing

I have a huge disdain for those artists who say that they don't need a prize to have their talent recognized. If I were a real actress (I'm only an entertainer) I'd do my best to win an Oscar knowing that the Academy is a serious institution of people who really understand about it.

Carmen Miranda

There's no pressure when you have a lot of good players like I do now. Pressure was last year when we didn't have enough talent in order to compete.

Ted Cottrell

It was a perfect storm of talent, personalities, direction, goals and dominance.

Dan Hampton

We thought Bruce had a lot of talent and had a good high school experience. But, he has gone beyond what we expected from him. He has gone way beyond what we thought we were getting.

Tom Amstutz

We had so much talent and depth, our third team was as good as anyone else's first team.

Terry Brennan

He's a staggering talent. He has no weaknesses He's the most complete back in the business. And he's not even close to his prime.

Randy Mueller

We put ourselves in a hole. Now we have to bring everything we've got for Friday. We know we have the talent to pull this off.

Katie Smith

We've got a lot of young talent.

Fidel Vasquez

I think when we had all of our talent, stretched over the year, we are a force. We knew what we were facing this year.

Carrie Graf

We don't really worry about who's not playing, because we think we have enough talent to move on.

Joshua Tinch

We have a lot of talent and we need to bring it out this year because a lot of seniors are leaving.

Melissa Miller

I absolutely believe my talent is God-given. I ask God for a lot, but I also thank him. I'm a very demanding believer.

Hubert De Givenchy

Their talent is 10 times better than us. It's the first time (this season) I felt we battled the whole, entire game.

Sherri Murrell

If we use our talent effectively and work on becoming a team, we should be pretty good. It wouldn't surprise me if we end up in the top three of the region. We have some dangerous kids.

Steve Bowler

I think the change is going to spark the team. We'll get the best coach in here. We are young and have a lot of talent. I think a new coach will help us out a lot.

Aaron Jackson

There's a lot of talent on that (Woburn) roster, and we played with a lot courage and played hard. But we made too many mistakes. We're a young team and we're still learning.

John Fiore

I feel it's nice to have a broad spectrum of talent.

Matt Carere

He is a good guy and he works very hard. He wants to be a tennis player and I think he has shown he has the talent.

Andy Murray

The act of nutrition is not a purely physiological event... The family meal is a formality that cultivates in us... a capacity for sharing, generosity, thoughtfulness, a talent for civilized conversation.

Francine Du Plessix Gray

I'd like to play here. They have got so much young talent that they are going to be a good team.

Billy Koch

John and David played brilliantly against a tough field at Borgata ... Their results further demonstrate the depth of talent that represents Full Tilt Poker.

Howard Lederer

Leonard can make big plays; he's already shown that ... The biggest thing about this team is they have talent and experience on offense.These guys are all seniors and most of them have played for two or three years.

Dave Wannstedt

Erin has the talent to be an all-state runner, just like he brother, Brad, was. She just needs to get over some small hurdles, build a little more strength and it could be a 1-2-3 punch.

Jermoe Loy

Any time you have a player who has his talent and skills and is hungry to get better, you're excited. I'm really excited about the things he can do.

Bobby Lutz

Every single team that we played, bar one or two, had some exceptional talent on their team.

Wendy Larry

I wasn't really sure what to expect coming into the season. I knew David had talent, but I certainly didn't expect him to be undefeated this late in the season.

Don Cooley

You use what talent God gave you, but I have to learn how to control my speed.

Jerry Butler

He's got a lot of talent and has been playing [lacrosse] four or five years. He's got to play big for us, and he does. He has a ton of heart. He moves well in the cage and he's not afraid of anything.

Dale Nalls

It was a good match-up between the two teams. We're comparable to Saranac on a talent level.

Keith Clark

If commercial rents are at bargain basement prices, (if) you have good growth prospects and (if) your headquarters is located within a hour's drive, it makes sense from an expansion standpoint, especially if you're looking to recruit top talent in the industry.

Patrick J. Mahoney

Athletes will always look up to players like Bonds because he is a pro. But there is no need for steroids in baseball. It should be all about talent and ability, not their enhanced ability.

Hal Ziegler

This is the tough part of our schedule, and we need to stay focused. We are in a difficult stretch. Our players have a great attitude with a nice mix of talent and experience.

Michael Toups

It's not like promoting an assistant coach who has never been there. He's done it in several places and been successful. I have full confidence in him that he'll be able to put us in good situations and really use the talent that we have.

Steve Mckinney

Eustace has a lot of talent this year. With some of the new players he has and the maturity of his skilled people, I really think we are going to have a tough game on our hands.

Billy Hughes

She has grown so much. There is so much talent in that body that high school gymnastics has brought out. She is trying to carve herself a place in the gymnastics world, and right now she's on fire.

Karen Kuhlmann

Drew really reminds me a lot of Richard Todd. Richard could make a great play one minute, then throw a bad pass the next. Drew is like that. He has a lot of talent but you don't know what you're going to get a lot of times from one quarter to the next or even one play to the next.

Joe Walton

Reviews are an effective way to gauge an employees' productivity and discuss career growth. However, unless managers give constructive feedback, they can forget about building a dialogue with workers and run the risk of losing top talent to other companies.

Raymond Roe

I think we got a lot of new talent in here.

Joel Glazer

Considering the amount of time, effort and resources clubs put into nurturing junior talent, it is high time that the transfer payment concept was looked at very seriously. It is time for clubs to get some monetary reward for producing Super 14 representatives and Wallabies.

Simon Poidevin
