“Talent hits a target no one else can hit; genius hits a target no one else can see.”
—Arthur Schopenhauer

“Instead of shooting arrows at someone else’s target, which I’ve never been very good at, I make my own target around wherever my arrow happens to have landed. You shoot your arrow and then you paint your bulls eye around it, and therefore you have hit the target dead centre.”
—Brian Eno

“I had a son, so I said, ‘I’m going to be a father for a while. I’m not going to rush into work. Let the work come find me.” I let the target draw the arrow, the arrows came my way.”
—Matthew McConaughey
