Greatness vs. Excellence

Some people may have greatness thrust upon them.  Very few have excellence thrust upon them.  They achieve it.  They do not achieve it unwittingly, by “doing what comes naturally”; and they don’t stumble into it in the course of amusing themselves.  All excellence involves discipline and tenacity of purpose.
