Michael Boulter Quotes (1 quote)
“We will be one of the extinguished species. The good news is that life on the planet will recover and peace will return to the environment.”
Extinction: Evolution and the End of Man (2002)
“They who lack talent expect things to happen without effort. They ascribe failure to a lack of inspiration or ability, or to misfortune, rather than to insufficient application. At the core of every true talent there is an awareness of the difficulties inherent in any achievement, and the confidence that by persistence and patience something worthwhile will be realized. Thus talent is a species of vigor.”
Between the Devil and the Dragon: The Best Essays and Aphorisms of Eric Hoffer (Harper & Row, 1982), p. 67
