Wednesday's Words

I like the distinction that poet Edgar Lee Masters (1868-1950) makes in this statement:

"Genius is a bend in the creek where bright water has gathered, and which mirrors the trees, the sky and the banks. It just does that because it is there and the scenery is there. Talent is a fine mirror with a silver frame, with the name of the owner engraved on the back."
