PERSONAL MOTTO:

“…that is not enough that the musician should get his music out of him. It is also his business to get his music into somebody else.”
“But the moment of creation is the moment of communication. It is when the work has passed from mind to mind that it becomes a work of Art.” G.K. Chesterton
“Do or do not. There is no try!” Yoda
