I add this also, that natural ability without education has oftener raised man to glory and virtue, than education without natural ability.—Cicero What do you think?

I have to disagree with Cicero. I believe both natural ability and education are equally needed. A balance of the two is what make a man be wise both in what he has learned in the material world and what he has attained in a spiritual nature. Choosing one over the other will place you in disharmony. When you are naturally talented but lack education you tend to make simple mistakes that could have been overcome if you had studied in that subject rulling out many common mistakes. If you have education but lack the natural ability to function in some areas, what good is all the knowledge you contain if you cannot perfect it?

Well I thank Cicero has a point and to explain more I think this article would be better to read. http://socyberty.com/philosophy/finding-true-virtue/
