"Say nothing good of yourself, you will be distrusted; say nothing bad of yourself, you will be taken at your word."
"Who dares nothing, need hope for nothing."
So inspiring to have been able to work with Itzhak Perlman this week!
"Experience shows that success is due less to ability than to zeal. The winner is he who gives himself to his work, body and soul."
"Do not, for one repulse, forego the purpose
That you resolv’d to effect."
"You’ll seldom experience regret for anything that you’ve done. It is what you haven’t done that will torment you. The message, therefore, is clear. Do it! Develop an appreciation for the present moment. Seize every second of your life and savour it. Value your present moments. Using them up in any self–defeating ways means you’ve lost them forever."
