  • So her mother put her in a performance. she wasn't worried at all till she hit the wrong note and more followed after that and at the end she did a curtsy. Then one of the kids says something hurtful and she left.
  • "That was awful!"
  • "At least she tried."
  • A few years ago her mother offered to give her the piano for her to keep and play. She declined because she thought she would want it as a memory. Then after she passed away she played a piece called "Pleading child" and thought "Pleading child" is shorter but slower; "Perfectly contented" was longer but faster. Then she realized they were two halves of the same song.
  • "No you only one can play!"
