Nicolo Paganini (1782-1840) is still considered one of the greatest violinists of all time. One day as he was about to perform before a sold-out opera house, he walked out on stage to a huge ovation and felt that something was terribly wrong.

Suddenly he realized that he had someone else's violin in his hands. Horrified, but knowing that he had no other choice, he began.

That day he gave the performance of his life.

After the concert, Paganini was in his dressing room speaking to a fellow musician and he reflected, "Today, I learned the most important lesson of my entire career. Before today I thought the music was in the violin; today I learned that the music is in me."

The hostess (with a daughter of marriageable age - of long duration) sent out an invitation to an officer (who was supposed to be the prospective suitor of her daughter's hand):
"Mr. and Mrs. Dabney request the pleasure of Captain Black's company at dinner on the 16th of September."

She was somewhat dismayed to receive the enthusiastic reply:
"With the exception of four men on leave, and two sick, Captain Black's company accept with much pleasure your invitation to dinner on the 16th of September."
