What Lies Fallow

I observed him sing his song, starting over again and again whenever he missed a note, until he performed the song as perfectly as he could.

I asked, why did you try so hard to sing that song, when perhaps your talents lie elsewhere?

He smiled and said, aye, and tenfold is the loss to the man who has the talent to do so, but chooses to spend his efforts elsewhere.

Aye indeed.
