the law of Dharma, you have a unique talent and a unique way of expressing
it. There is something that you can do better than anyone else in the
whole world--and for every unique talent and unique expression of that
talent, there are also unique needs. When these needs are matched with the

the day before; such people are unaware that, as in the case of
all mortal things, talent has its increase and decrease, and that
independently of the career it takes, like everything that
breathes... it undergoes all the accidents of health, of sickness,
and of the dispositions of the soul -- its gaiety or its
sadness. As with our perishable flesh. talent is obliged
