Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.
— Vincent Van Gogh
Practice means to perform, over and over again in the face of all obstacles, some act of vision, of faith, of desire. Practice is a means of inviting the perfection desired.
— performers quotation by Martha Graham
To perform your best, you need to know who you are and why you think and feel the way you do.
The things that have always been important: to be a good man, to try to live my life the way God would have me, to turn it over to Him that His will might be worked in my life, to do my work without looking back, to give it all I've got, and to take pride in my work as an honest performer.
You cannot perform in a manner inconsistent with the way you see yourself.
Few things are impossible to diligence and skill.
Great works are performed not by strength, but perseverance.
The power of a song has over people... the simple fact that someone could be having awful day and your song or performance can make that all go away. The way it affects people's lives and how they can remember what was going in their life when they heard a certain song.
Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance.
