One time, a fine pianist performed at a party for 50 rich women. After she was done, a woman from the party said to the virtuoso, “I’d give anything to play as you do.”
As the master pianist sipped her coffee in slow motion, she took a brief pause and said, “Oh no you wouldn’t.”
Soon, a great hush filled the room as they were baffled in astonishment and massive confusion.
She continued, “You’d give anything to play as I do, except Time. You wouldn’t sit and practice, hour after hour, day after day, year after year.”
Then she flashed a warm smile while repositioning her coffee cup. “Please understand, I’m not criticizing,” she said. “I’m just telling you that when you say you’d give anything to play as I do, you don’t really mean it. You really don’t mean it at all.”
