Speak the Truth, but Leave Immediately After goes the Slovenian proverb.

"A pupil may show you by his own efforts how much he deserves to learn from you." Proverbs from Ancient Egyptian Temples.
I like this as much as I like "the lesson ends when you need to go back and practice."

"…a movie where children actually come out of the closet." Movie preview.
Either the Chronicles of Narnia, or the Land of the Rather Politically Incorrect.

"...teaches theory, composition and piano at the University of the Arts in Philidelphia, and performs with his jazz group three nights a week at Sullivan's Steakhouse, in King of Prussia, PA." Concert programme notes.
A not uncommon combination, but perhaps a little unusual on paper.

"Beginning musicians are particularly vulnerable to the pressure to accumulate pieces." Shinichi Suzuki.
Not only for beginning musicians, and sometimes stating the obvious is a good thing…

"At times the world can seem an unfriendly and sinister place, but believe us when we say that there is more good in it than bad. All you have to do is look hard enough. And what might seem to be like a series of unfortunate events, may in fact be the first steps of a journey." - Lemony Snickett’s A Series of Unfortunate Events
…in more ways than one.
