The fact is that given the challenges we face, I don't really need to read a whole book on finding the crosspoint between passion and talent, but this is the quote that got me: p. The key to this transformation is not to standardize education but to personalize it, to build achievement on discovering the individual talents of each child, to put students in an environment where they want to learn and where they can naturally discover their true passions.

No human person in the history of the world has had the same biology and psychology as you do. Throughout human evolution , genes have been combined, changed, tweaked and permuted countless billions, trillions of times even. Yet you are the first and only instance of your exact combination of genes.
No one will ever have the same genetic code, ever again even if you have an identical twin. Of course this includes your brain, which is responsible for the second, absolutely unique thing about you: your experience. You were born at a certain place which will never be the same it was that day at a certain time which will never come again into a certain set of circumstances which will never be the same again. Nobody can ever have the same experiences with the same people in the same moment as you.
