Famous quotes containing the word discovered:

    Perhaps all music, even the newest, is not so much something discovered as something that re-emerges from where it lay buried in the memory, inaudible as a melody cut in a disc of flesh. A composer lets me hear a song that has always been shut up silent within me.
    Jean Genet (1910–1986)

    Joyce Carol Oates (b. 1938)
