There’s a story, you may have heard, about the famous and gifted violin player, Itzhak Perlman.

A woman said, “You were phenomenal tonight, Mr Perlman. Amazing!”

“Thank you” came the reply.

The women went on, “All my life I have loved the violin, and I have heard every great violinist, but I have never heard anyone play as brilliantly as you did tonight”.

Perlman graciously smiled back at her.

She added, “You know, I’d give my life to play like that.”

Perlman smiled again and said,

“I have!”
