Diligence and Labor...


"Always recollect that excellence of any sort is beyond the reach of indolence. If you allow yourself to believe that it is impossible for you to do what you see others perform, your despair will not allow you to succeed... facility will always come with diligence and labor."

-Lt. John McLennan writing to his pupil and son G.S. McLennan, widely regarded as one of the most talented musical prodigies to ever lift a pipe.
