WIT: about talent

 
After experiencing a performance by a musician with more arrogance than ability, the great Lithuanian maestro Vytautas Marijosius said: 

"When you don't got talent...you don't got for a long time."

  1. What a wonderful picture of, indeed, a very charismatic and witty man.

  2. Vytautas Marijosius was a wonderful, sensitive, witty and talented man. I had the privilege of studying with him during my undergraduate days at Hartt 1962 - 1966.

  3. Bryan, thank you. My years under VM's guidance are still with me to this day.

  4. He was a man to be remembered in so many ways. I, being half Lithuanian, we worked well together. A coincidence perhaps. Nevertheless. He always patiently had the time to guide me in his art. What wonderful memories.
