My grandmother said to me once when I had told her that my English professor in high school had said, “Why are you doing something as frivolous as a sport like skating? If you are interested in medicine, why don’t you just stop doing something so silly?” And I thought, he had a point, but at the same time, I wouldn’t be any use to anybody at the age of fifteen as a physician, and I mentioned it to my grandmother afterwards. And I said, “You know, it does sound silly, and it does sound as if I’m doing it just for my own fun.” And she said, “You have an obligation to do the best you can with whatever you’ve got. And if you like to do a sport, and you can do part of it well, that’s a way of expressing what God gave you.”
