Famous quotes containing the words piano, cut, composer and/or series:

    Film music should have the same relationship to the film drama that somebody’s piano playing in my living room has to the book I am reading.
    Igor Stravinsky (1882–1971)

    You are clear
    O rose, cut in rock,
    hard as the descent of hail.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    A person taking stock in middle age is like an artist or composer looking at an unfinished work; but whereas the composer and the painter can erase some of their past efforts, we cannot. We are stuck with what we have lived through. The trick is to finish it with a sense of design and a flourish rather than to patch up the holes or merely to add new patches to it.
    Harry S. Broudy (b. 1905)

    Through a series of gradual power losses, the modern parent is in danger of losing sight of her own child, as well as her own vision and style. It’s a very big price to pay emotionally. Too bad it’s often accompanied by an equally huge price financially.
    Sonia Taitz (20th century)
