A Precious Gift

Translation:

There is great tragedy in allowing talent to lay idle. There is no keener heartbreak than that which comes to the boy or girl who looks back and finds that this talent was allowed to die for lack of proper training.

You may bury gold and find it when you dig for it, if you are lucky; but there is no way to keep buried talent. It will slip out of your grasp and be gone when you look for it.

Work now for the ideal you have and make the most of that precious gift of the gods while you may, for it will not be always with you.
