Resign Themselves

In today's society a good many people seem to have the idea that if one is born without talent, there is nothing he can do about it; they simply resign themselves to what they consider their "fate".  Consequently they go through life without living it to the fullest or ever knowing life's true joy.  That is man's greatest tragedy.

-- Shinichi Suzuki (1898-1998), violinist, inventor of the Suzuki method of music education, Nurtured by Love: The Classic Approach to Talent Education (1977, 1983)
