General Who needs discipline? 14 years ago3 Commentsby Kim Klaver2 Views “People think I’m disciplined. It is not discipline. It is devotion. There is a great difference.”-Luciano Pavarotti1935-2007, Opera Singer FacebookTwitterGoogle+PinterestLinkedIn
Interesting that Pavarotti made this comment. He was indeed a devoted opera singer, yet lacked discipline in other areas of his life, particularly in the area of health.
In the time of diets and the world’s concern about obesity, Luciano Pavarotti used to say he loved tasty food and good wine.
Pavarotti could very well be alive today and entertaining millions still, if he had devoted himself to his health as much as he did his music.
Eat Well. Live Well.
Yes, Pavarotti was indeed a devoted opera singer and that was the quote. Paul, you are right about his health and that he may still be around had he chosen to take care of himself. But his music still shines.
It was probably a personal choice of wanting to enjoy what’s good in life, and won’t mind dying happy.
