A great deal of talent is lost in the world for the want of a little courage.

Timidity and self-distrust are almost as great faults as conceit and over-confidence. There are many people who have real talent in different lines, and yet who never accomplish anything, because they are afraid to make the first venture; and in this way good and useful things are lost to the world. A reasonable amount of confidence in one’s own powers is necessary for success.
