“The gift of talent includes many special abilities…
We discover them as we grow and develop.
A tree is an apt symbol of talent.
The trunk represents the overall gift of talent.
The branches represent our many growing special abilities.
A tree in bloom symbolizes that our special abilities are being used.”
“Hide not your talents, they for use were made,
What’s a sun-dial in the shade?”
~ Benjamin Franklin

one’s power and talents.”
