„Collect impressions. Don’t be in a hurry to write them down.“

—  Claude Debussy, Context: Collect impressions. Don’t be in a hurry to write them down. Because that’s something music can do better than painting: it can centralise variations of colour and light within a single picture — a truth generally ignored, obvious as it is. Debussy in a letter to his pupil Raoul Bardac (1906)

„If you don’t set your writing — and teaching — at a level that makes them stretch, they are never going to develop their intellectual muscle.“

—  M. H. Abrams American literary theorist 1912 - 2015
Context: Pay attention to your students. Hear what they say, try to find out what their capacities are, what make sense to them. Adapt what you are doing and saying to those capacities, but make your students stretch upward. I think the trick is to adapt to the level of a student, but never rest on that level — always make them reach out. … If a student does not quite get it the first time, he or she will come back and get it later. If you don’t set your writing — and teaching — at a level that makes them stretch, they are never going to develop their intellectual muscle.

„Until the early nineties, I was under the impression that the Celts were this mad collection of anarchists from Ireland, Scotland and Wales.“

—  Loreena McKennitt Canadian musician and composer 1957
Context: Until the early nineties, I was under the impression that the Celts were this mad collection of anarchists from Ireland, Scotland and Wales. When I saw an exhibition in Venice, I discovered they were a vast collection of tribes originating from Middle and Eastern Europe as far back as 500 BC, and that over the centuries they migrated and integrated with people all over the world. So I've used this cultural history as a creative muse. With The Book Of Secrets in particular, I was interested in beginning with their earlier and more Eastern history
