    Smile A Quote (or more) a Day

    If a composer could say what he had to say in words
    he would not bother trying to say it in music.

    Music paints a thousand pictures

    A good musician executes a piece of music.
    A bad musician murders it.

    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

    My favorite humorous musical quote:

    In a leter to the editor:
    I am sitting in the smallest room of my house. I have your review before me. In a moment, it will be behind me.

    A fine book:

    Lexicon of Musical Invective

    not from the above book:

    "All men dream but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible." - T. E. Lawrence

    There are two ways of spreading light...
    To be the candle, or the mirror that reflects it.

    That thou art holy does not preclude the lighting of candles.
