We would be bragging, of course, but it is surely excusable to put the best possible face on at the beginning of such an acquaintance." (Lewis Thomas) "Mozart tells us what it's like to be human, Beethoven tells us what it's like to be Beethoven, and Bach tells us what it's like to be the universe." (Douglas Adams)
