Jean CocteauTo be gifted is to be lost, unless one sees clearly in time to level the slopes instead of sliding down them all. How to conquer a gift should be the main study of anyone who recognizes one in himself
And what a complex matter it is to be clear-sighted, since gifts assume the first shape they meet and this shape might perchance be the right one.

-Jean Cocteau, La Difficulté d'Etre
