Who said this?

And it's answer: 'Practice, practice, practice.'

It's an anonymous saying: When asking a New Yorker how do I get to Carnegie Hall, the answer is, "Practice, practice, practice."

I say this on an advert; a man digging a hole (water, gas, electricity?) and an old lady with a map asked for directions.

Other than that, can't help.

I read this on Wikipedia


A venerable legend has become part of the folklore of the hall: A New Yorker (or in some versions Arthur Rubinstein) is approached in the street near Carnegie Hall, and asked, "Pardon me sir, but how do I get to Carnegie Hall?" He replies, "Practice, practice, practice." The Directions page of the Carnegie Hall Web site gently alludes to the joke.

Jackie,

I never thought to look at the Carnegie Hall website.
