Discipline

Two recent quotes I’ve encountered about discipline.

From Stanley  Crouch writing about Charlie Parker:

Either you got yourself some discipline, Charlie had learned, or humiliation would follow.

From Twyla Tharp’s book on creativity:

Of course, there’s an ur-skill that I don’t even feel obliged to list.  That, dear reader, is discipline.  Everyone needs it.  No explanation required.
