Meditations

MeditationWhen I come across to intellectual or musical statements that strike me as profound or inspiring, I will put them here on this page.
Some of these are for fun, others are much deeper. My apologies in advance if occasionally a source will be inaccurate.
All in all this is just inspiration for some meditation*…

You must be the change you wish to see in the world.

- Mahatma Gandhi

True Music, like all true Art, is an experience to be shared, not judged, for praise cannot make it better, as blame cannot make it worse.

- Pat Martino

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

- Dilbert

The drums should be as musically supportive of the compositions as the rest of the instruments. It’s a musical instrument, playing with other musical instruments.

- Elvin Jones

Do not fear mistakes. There are none.

- Miles Davis

Great spirits always encounter violent opposition from mediocre minds.

- Albert Einstein

To be nobody-but-yourself — in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else — means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.

- E. E. Cummings
