This Week’s Concerts (January 11 – 18)

This week, quotes!!

“Contrariwise,’ continued Tweedledee, ‘if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn’t, it ain’t. That’s logic.”

– Lewis Carroll

“Books are no more threatened by Kindle than stairs by elevators.”

– Steven Fry

“The mind is sharper and keener in seclusion and uninterrupted solitude. No big laboratory is needed in which to think. Originality thrives in seclusion free of outside influences beating upon us to cripple the creative mind. Be alone, that is the secret of invention; be alone, that is when ideas are born. That is why many of the earthly miracles have had their genesis in humble surroundings.”

– Nikola Tesla

“He was alone. He was unheeded, happy, and near to the wild heart of life. He was alone and young and wilful and wildhearted, alone amid a waste of wild air and brackish waters and the seaharvest of shells and tangle and veiled grey sunlight.”

– James Joyce

“The one thing I remember about Christmas was that my father used to take me out in a boat about ten miles offshore on Christmas Day, and I used to have to swim back. Extraordinary. It was a ritual.
Mind you, that wasn’t the hard part. The difficult bit was getting out of the sack.”

John Cleese

“The whales do not sing because they have an answer, they sing because they have a song.”

– Gregory Colbert

“Escóndeme en tus brazos
por esta noche sola,
mientras la lluvia rompe
contra el mar y la tierra
su boca innumerable.”

– Pablo Neruda

 

Bonne fin de semaine!
