To tie in with my practice blog, I thought I’d post some quotes. One writer, one musician and three golfers! (Hmmm. Maybe that’s why so many brass players read golf magazines during their measures of rest? Maybe they are merely reading about practice techniques? Or not.)

I know you’ve heard it a thousand times before. But it’s true — hard work pays off. If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice. If you don’t love something, then don’t do it.

-Ray Bradbury (1920 – ) US science-fiction writer

Practice puts your brains in your muscles.

-Sam Snead (1912 – 2002) US golfer

Practice, which some regard as a chore, should be approached as just about the most pleasant recreation ever devised.
-Babe Didrikson Zaharias (1914 – 1956) US sportswoman, golfer

Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day.
-Jim Rohn (1887 – 1982) Polish-US virtuoso pianist

The formula for success is simple: practice and concentration then more practice and more concentration.
-Babe Didrikson Zaharias (1914 – 1956) US sportswoman, golfer
