Talent is the ineffable quality that cannot be classified as the mere cumulative result of hours and hours of practice.

    This sounds in contradiction with the word from Edison "Genius is 10% inspiration, 90% transpiration". I've found actually that the most talented people I know are those who are able to focus extremely tightly on their work : being able to spend 8 hours a day for two months working on the same 5 minutes piano sonata isn't given to everyone, especially not to me :) and that does a hell of a difference.
