    Thumbs up Cool story about the power of practice

    Former Baylor coach Grant Teaff once told this story about practicing:

    * * *

    One evening after the great violinist Fritz Kreisler finished a remarkable performance, an elderly lady walked up and said, "Mr. Kreisler, I would give my life to be able to play a violin like that."

    "Madam," said Kreisler, "I did."

    * * *

    I like the story!

    That's great story.

    I also recall the following quote:

    “Practice as if you are the worst, perform as if you are the best.”
    "You got a dream... You gotta protect it. People can't do somethin' themselves, they wanna tell you you can't do it. If you want somethin', go get it. Period." - Pursuit of Happyness

    That is also quite good. The author of that quote is unknown, eh?
