Quotes About Ability

Ability is a mental concept. How great ability one has is mostly determined with a way he/she thinks of himself/herself. Although physical human boundaries should be acknowledged, it is probably wrong to think that some people have greater ability than others. We can develop almost any ability if we accumulate enough knowledge relevant to specific ability.

I have learnt this mostly through quotes below. There were times when I considered myself to be of a less ability than others. And I was right. For the time being. The problem was my belief that the ability was distant and unreachable. Quotes and sayings about ability will tell you that almost any ability is the function of our thinking, and that we can acquire it. We are more capable than we think we are. Hope you will find these quotes and quotations helpful.
