PRACTICE is the underlying principle
that governed the development of any skill. To be able to do a thing, you must begin to do it, and keep doing it until the thing is mastered. This principle prevails universally in all arts, sciences, trades; in all learning, conduct, religion. To be able to paint, one must first paint; to know how to use a tool skillfully, he must first use the tool; to become learned and intelligent, he must learn; to be wise, he must do wise things.
