Through And Through The World Is Infested With Quantity. To Talk Sense Is To Talk Quantities, It Is No Use Saying The Nation Is Large- How Large? It Is No Use S Aying That Radium Is Scarce- How Scarce? You Can Not Evade Quantity. You May Fly To Poetry And Music And Quantity And Number Will Face You In Your Rhythms And Your Octaves.

~ Lewis Thomas
No One Imagines That A Symphony Is Supposed To Improve In Quality As It Goes Along, Or That The Whole Object Of Playing It Is To Reach The Finale.

It Is The Same, I Feel, With The Greater Part Of Our Lives, And If We Are Unduly Absorbed In Improving Them We May Forget Altogether To Live Them.
~ Alan B. Watts
A Day Out-of-doors, Someone I Loved To Talk With, A Good Book And Some Simple Food And Music -- That Would Be Rest.
