Not sure if I heard this somewhere, paraphrased something I heard, or came up with it spontaneously:

"Who should we aspire to more, the man who succeeds because of his talents, or the man who succeeds despite not having talents?"

A fun one some friends and I came up with one night back when I was young, only to find out later it was pretty common twist on Clarke's quote:

"Any sufficiently explained magic is indistinguishable from science"
I really like that first quote. "Who should we aspire to more, the man who succeeds because of his talents, or the man who succeeds despite not having talents?"
