Talent versus skills

Talent is not an assembly line. Sheer numbers do not guarantee an expected rate of yield. Talent is a rare creature as opposed to skills where the masses can be schooled and instructed according to conventions.  Too many times, it is the least expected and the most overlooked corners that yield the rarest of talents. Through ambitious planning, it is possible to cultivate skills on a massive scale. However when talent is fused with skills, the worth of a minority is finer than a common majority.
