Ole Bull: Going on when your A string snaps

Ole Bull, the famous Norwegian violinist, was giving a concert in Paris when his A string snapped. He transposed the composition and finished it on four strings.

That is life—to have your A string snap and then to finish on three strings.

Some of the finest things in life have to be done that way.
