A man of ordinary talent will always be ordinary, whether he travels or not; but a man of superior talent (which I cannot deny myself to be without being impious) will go to pieces if he remains forever in the same place.

- Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart












If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.  ~J.K. Rowling
