Quotes

“I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.”
– Albert Einstein

“Man know thyself:
Then thou shalt know the universe and God.”
– Pythagoras

[When creating music, asking:]
“Is it music?
I’ve decided ultimately that this is the wrong question…The important question is; Is it interesting?
And I follow this question not worrying about ‘is it music?’, not worrying about the definition of the thing that I’m making. I’m allowing my creativity to push me in directions that are simply interesting to me, and I don’t worry about the likeness of the result to some notion, some paradigm, of what music composition is supposed to be.”
– Mark Applebaum

“I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavours to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”
– Henry David Thoreau

“When I was in high school I said to my mom; ‘Mom, can I have permission to build a 2.3 million-electron-volt betatron particle accelerator in the garage? And she said “sure. Why not? And don’t forget to take out the garbage.”
– Michio Kaku

“All paid jobs absorb and degrade the mind.”
– Aristotle
