Talent is often to be envied, and genius very commonly to be
pitied. It stands twice the chance of the other of dying in
a hospital, in jail, in debt, in bad repute. It is a
perpetual insult to mediocrity; its every word is a
trespass against somebody's vested ideas.
Oliver Wendell Holmes (1809-1894)
American Author, Wit and Poet
