"Archery as an art is more like music than anything else. At first you blunder horridly with the keys of a piano; but at length you can dash through a waltz at a gallop. So when you begin long range shooting you may not score 150 at the Double York Round; but the time soon comes when you easily count off 500 or 600. Intelligent training is everything. The race is to the diligent. Patience and intelligent labor form the royal road to success."
