Musical Interlude

"After silence that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music." -- Aldous Huxley

"Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life." -- Berthold Auerbach

(This isn't about music perse, but I love Einstein and this quote rocks.)

"He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice." -- Albert Einstein

"Writing has laws of perspective, of light and shade just as painting does, or music. If you are born knowing them, fine. If not, learn them. Then rearrange the rules to suit yourself." -- Truman Capote

(And just because I'm incapable of being totally serious ...)

"The Irish gave the bagpipes to the Scots as a joke, but the Scots haven't got the joke yet." --Oliver Herford
