As to whether a poem has been written by a great poet or not, this is important only to historians of literature. Let us suppose, for the sake of argument, that I have written a beautiful line; let us take this as a working hypothesis. Once I have written it, that line

I concluded some time ago that a major part of success of a team, or of an individual, has a great deal to do with the intangible qualities possessed.
