- “….at some moment I did answer Yes to Someone, or Something, and from that hour I was certain that existence is meaningful and that, therefore, my life, in self-surrender, had a goal.” Dag Hammarskjold
- “Art isn’t only a painting. Art is anything that’s creative, passionate, and personal. And great art resonates with the viewer, not only with the creator.
An artists is someone who uses bravery, insight, creativity, and boldness to challenge the status quo. And an artists takes it personally.
Art is a personal gift that changes the recipient. The medium doesn’t matter. The intent does.
Art is a personal act of courage, something one human does that creates change in another.”
- You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams. Dr. Seuss
- We eventually know that Someone Else is working through us, in us, for us, and in spite of us. After enlightenment, our life is not our own…..We stop fretting about our smallness. Our yes deeply matters. The word for that yes and that connection is, quite simply, love. Richard Rohr
- “Rest until you feel like playing, then play until you feel like resting.” Martha Beck
- “Like fireworks, we pull apart the dark.” Sleeping At Last
- The border between music and noise is always culturally defined
—which implies that, even within a single society, this border does not always pass through the same place;
in short, there is rarely a consensus …
By all accounts there is no single and intercultural universal concept defining what music might be. Jean-Jacques Nattiez
- And, finally, I believe that all these things are true, and that [the] “unanswered question” has an answer. I’m no longer sure what the question is, but I do know the answer — and the answer is, “Yes.” Leonard Berstein
