A dramatic artist studied under a strict teacher who insisted that he rehearse day after day, month after month the same passage from the same song, without being permitted to go any further. Finally, overwhelmed by frustration and despair, the young man ran off to find another profession.

One night, stopping at an inn, he stumbled upon a recitation contest. Having nothing to lose, he entered the competition and, of course, sang the one passage that he knew so well. When he had finished, the sponsor of the contest highly praised his performance. Despite the student's embarrassed objections, the sponsor refused to believe that he had just heard a beginner perform. "Tell me," the sponsor said, "who is your instructor? He must be a great master."

The student was embarrassed and later became known as a great artist.

"Hard work will always pay off sometime in the future. I can see myself telling this story to someone who wants to quit something before they've really gotten into it."

"You can always take your abilities one step further, one inch closer to perfection. We should never be satisfied with a good or even a great performance. Let's be patient and strive for ultimate perfection, no matter what the cost."

"Just practicing isn't always enough. You have to be involved in what you are doing. You have to learn from the heart."
