    “Please do not understand me too quickly.”

    I'm not sure this makes sense, but I find it true. Your musical selection is too rich for me to fully grasp. It swept me, but I will listen to it more, over the next week, and then I might find a coherent opinion on it to tell you.

    Or perhaps you're already right, and these symphonic emotions go beyond words. But those are the most interesting qualities to seek words for.

    While I was looking for my favorite Gide quote, I found some other gems. He was wise, original, and unruly.

    Only those things are beautiful which are inspired by madness and written by reason.

    Believe those who are seeking the truth. Doubt those who find it.

    It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for something you are not.

    "Every man has a right to utter what he thinks truth" Samuel Johnson
