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.

And When Our Music Falls On The Ears Of An Infant It Is Of The Lowest Character Compared With The Music It Is Accustomed To.
~ Hazrat Inayat Khan
He Who Joyfully Marches To Music Rank And File, Has Already Earned My Contempt. He Has Been Given A Large Brain By Mistake, Since For Him The Spinal Cord Would Surely Suffice. This Disgrace To Civilization Should Be Done Away With At Once. Heroism At Command, How Violently I Hate All This, How Despicable And Ignoble War Is; I Would Rather Be Torn To Shreds Than Be A Part Of So Base An Action. It Is My Conviction That Killing Under The Cloak Of War Is Nothing But An Act Of Murder.
~ Albert Einstein
