heart of a gypsy; discipline of a soldier

Passed along in email and attributed to Ludwig van Beethoven:

A musician must have the heart of a gypsy and the discipline of a soldier. 

Maybe that goes for anyone who honestly knows his stuff.


  1. Victor Borge comes to mind, but i don't really remember who said it. "If i don't practice one day i know it. If i don't practice two days the critics know it. If i don't practice three days the audience knows it."
