"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

"About suffering they were never wrong, the Old Masters...."

"More than this:  we even exult in our present sufferings, because we know what suffering is a source of endurance, endurance of approval, and approval of hope.  Such hope is no fantasy; through the Holy Spirit he has given us, God's love has flooded our hearts."--Romans 5:3-5, REB.
