Mozart on work

Great quote from Mozart:

People err who think my art comes easily to me. I assure you, dear friend, nobody has devoted so much time and thought to composition as I. There is not a famous master whose music I have not industriously studied through many times.

From Twyla Tharp’s excellent book The Creative Habit (p. 8), which I highly recommend along with Steven Pressfield’s The War of Art.
