If you have a great idea, it will not be so simple as to put it forth and see it rise to fruition. The others too will think their ideas are equally great and deserve the concluding sweep. The important thing then is to know how to explain your idea to others, in such a way that it lies very closely to the manner in which it appears in your mind; for there, it seems abundant with merit. It is also important to not continuously clamber over the ideas of others – that only works them up, and drives them into a insistence on their ideas being the better one. Talent alone is nothing without proper communication.
