Got Talent

"It's strange how when people tell you that you have talent, what they're really saying is that you have no real achievement to match it."

Since reading this terrifying insight in British writer Alan Wall's short story 'The Painter' some years ago, I always watch out for the use of the word "talent" in book or art reviews. I have a horrible suspicion Wall is completely on the money.
