  • Teaching is an instinctual art, mindful of potential, craving of realizations, a pausing, seamless process.

  • Poetry leads us to the unstructured sources of our beings, to the unknown, and returns us to our rational, structured selves refreshed. Having once experienced the mystery, plenitude, contradiction, and composure of a work of art, we afterward have a built-in resistance to the slogans and propaganda of oversimplification that have often contributed to the destruction of human life.

The same equation applies to publishing, film and, I expect, sumo wrestling.

  • Our fans want us to be happy and if that means being married or having a girlfriend, they are okay with that. Of course, in this industry it is a bit harder to have normal relationships, but it is possible.

  • A kitten is chiefly remarkable for rushing about like mad at nothing whatever and generally stopping before it gets there.

  • I can tell you, dearest friend, that if it became known how much friendship, love and a world of human and spiritual references I have smuggled into these three movements, the adherents of programme music - should there be any left - would go mad with joy.

  • People say I am mad. I am not mad. I am trying to heal my soul.

  • Is it mad to pray for better hallucinations?
