„How can you say young girls don't get it? They're our future. Our future doctors, lawyers, mothers, presidents, they kind of keep the world going.“

—  Harry Styles English singer, songwriter, and actor 1994

Interview by Cameron Crowe in Rolling Stone (18 April 2017) http://www.rollingstone.com/music/features/harry-styles-opens-up-about-famous-flings-honest-new-lp-w476928
Context: Who's to say that young girls who like pop music – short for popular, right? – have worse musical taste than a 30-year-old hipster guy? That's not up to you to say. Music is something that's always changing. There's no goal posts. Young girls like the Beatles. You gonna tell me they're not serious? How can you say young girls don't get it? They're our future. Our future doctors, lawyers, mothers, presidents, they kind of keep the world going. Teenage-girl fans – they don't lie. If they like you, they're there. They don't act 'too cool.' They like you, and they tell you. Which is sick.

George Steiner photo

„Language can only deal meaningfully with a special, restricted segment of reality. The rest, and it is presumably the much larger part, is silence.“

—  George Steiner American writer 1929 - 2020

"The Retreat from the Word," Kenyon Review (Spring 1961).
Language and Silence: Essays 1958-1966 (1967)

Camille Saint-Saëns photo

„Nothing is more difficult than talking about music: if it is a prickly business for musicians, it is almost impossible for anyone else—the strongest, subtlest minds go astray.“

—  Camille Saint-Saëns French composer, organist, conductor, and pianist of the Romantic era 1835 - 1921

“L’illusion wagnérienne”, Portraits et souvenirs, Société d’édition artistique, 1899, 206‒220

Laozi photo

„It is hidden but always present.“

—  Laozi, book Tao Te Ching

Source: Tao Te Ching, Ch. 4, as interpreted by Stephen Mitchell (1992)
Context: The Tao is like a well:
used but never used up.
It is like the eternal void:
filled with infinite possibilities. It is hidden but always present.
I don't know who gave birth to it.
It is older than God.
