What's More Important in Life: Talent or Hard Work?

Post by General Mackevili » Wed Jun 11, 2014 3:55 pm

Which will get you further in life and help you be successful?

I'll make it a poll.
"Life is too important to take seriously."

"Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh."

Damn. And I was definitely thinking "talent."

I hope we can settle who's right and who's wrong here.

Talent makes hard work redundant, unfortunately no amount of hard work can compensate for lack of talent
