Regular readers of The Shellshank Redemption know how much I enjoy a good quote (see Motivational Mondays) and that I’m a huge fan of Stephen King (see the King of All Days Part I and Part II.) So, for the 2013 A-Z Challenge, I decided to combine the two, using some of my favorite King quotes about reading, writing and life in general. Enjoy!
Talent is CHEAPER than table salt.
What separates the
talented individual from the successful one
is a lot of hard work.
This quote hangs on my bulletin board. It’s been
there a loooong time. It makes me think about the people I know who are talented
and special, and who basically waste the gifts they were given. I use this
quote as a reminder – okay, as a kick in the butt – to not be one of them.
