“Up on the Tone Scale, we get somebody who can play any role and continues to know he is playing a role, even though he is playing it with complete sincerity. He knows it’s a game and he can enjoy the game. …

“The total reward, his entire pay, will be the ability to play any role with verve. To be the most convincing private in the regiment—as far as the dramatics—with no strain. And be perfectly willing to unbecome a private when that role seems to be running out. And with great calmness, become a general. And as a general, hate privates like mad and as a private, hate generals like mad—and never pile up a single ridge. …

“When you can play a real good role, when you can go down here and be the mule or be the general with equal verve, in the total spirit of play and do it with terrific sincerity—you’re living!”

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards.”
Former Pitcher, Vernon Sanders Law

Your action for today is to think of something you would do differently in hindsight and what lesson did that experience teach you.
