Why Should We Be In Such Desperate Haste To Succeed, And In Such Desperate Enterprises? If A Man Does Not Keep Pace With His Companions, Perhaps It Is Because He Hears A Different Drummer. Let Him Step To The Music Which He Hears, However Measured Or Far Away.
~ Henry David Thoreau, "Walden"
Diplomacy Without Arms Is Like Music Without Instruments.
~ Frederick the Great

Sure There Is Music Even In The Beauty, And The Silent Note Which Cupid Strikes, Far Sweeter Than The Sound Of An Instrument.

~ Sir Thomas Browne
If A Man Does Not Keep Pace With His Companions, Perhaps It Is Because He Hears A Different Drummer. Let Him Step To The Music Which He Hears, However Measured Or Far Away.
