I was there to push people beyond what's expected of them. I believe that's an absolute necessity.Whiplash, von Terence Fletcher

Der Trick ist einfach zu entspannen. Sorg dich nicht um die Zahlen, mach dir keine Gedanken um das, was die anderen denken. Du bist nicht ohne Grund hier.
Listen, the key is to just relax. Don't worry about the numbers. Don't worry about what the other guys are thinking. You're here for a reason.Whiplash, von Terence Fletcher
Da sind zwei Worte in unserem Sprachschatz, die verdammt schädlich sind. Sie lauten, "gut gemacht".

Six years ago, I came across a kid in a practice room, working on his scales. He was early second year and he'd started at Shaffer with a lot of hope. Like all you guys. But the truth was that he barely squeaked in to begin with and, uh... he was really struggling. The faculty were all telling him, "Maybe this isn't for you." But they didn't see what I saw. This scared, skinny kid, cursing himself because he couldn't get his scales right. I saw a drive in him. And I put him in Studio Band. And when he graduated, Marsalis made him third trumpet at Lincoln Center. A year later, he was first. That's who you're listening to now. His name was Sean Casey.Whiplash, von Terence Fletcher
