Aim at a high mark, and you'll hit it. Annie Oakley

This photo was taken @ 1880 of Annie Oakley (1860 –  1926)
She was famous as a sharpshooter during her life and started shooting at the age of six to support her siblings and her widowed mother by selling hunted game to locals.  This skill of necessity paid off the mortgage on her mother's farm by the time Annie was 15.

She famously said: “Aim at a high mark and you'll hit it. No, not the first time, nor the second time. Maybe not the third. But keep on aiming and keep on shooting for only practice will make you perfect.”
