Talent is what, if you succeed, people who don’t know why will say it’s because of. And if you don’t succeed, people who don‘t know why will say it‘s because you haven’t got it. Talent is the Snark; but the Snark is actually a Boojum, and the name of the Boojum is Luck. People do not want to believe in Boojums, so they try very hard to hunt for Snarks.

    I am reminded of one of my favourite Rush lyrics, from “Roll the Bones”:

    Good work is the key to good fortune
    Winners take that praise
    Losers seldom take that blame
