Who has really led a good life? Can people with ordinary talent ever really live a truly great life?
What's a "good" life? And what's a "great" life? I don't define either of those by notoriety, or the number of people affected.
And, frankly, what's "ordinary talent"? A talent means you can do something out of the ordinary.
Anyway, I think anyone can lead a good life, or a great life, and I think a lot of that has to with how you choose to minimize the damage you cause others and maximize the benefit you bring to others' lives.
