The product of labor.

“There is, of course, no substitute for work. I myself practiced constantly, as I have all my life. I have been told I play the cello with the ease of a bird flying. I do not know with how much effort a bird learns to fly, but I do know what effort has gone into my cello. What seems ease of performance comes from the greatest labor. . . Almost always, facility results only from maximum effort. Art is the product of labor.

~Pablo Casals, Joy and Sorrow 
(New York: 1970), 76
