Words of wisdom

Nicked from a flyer at the South Bank Centre.

I don’t entirely agree with the bottom one, but quotes about Powaqqatsi are not exactly 10-a-penny, so I let it pass.

Beethoven was wrong.
(John Cage)

Writing about music is like dancing about architecture.
(Frank Zappa or Steve Martin or Elvis Costello or Martin Mull or John Doe)

It looks like you can write a minimalist piece without much bleeding.
And you can.
But not a good one.
(David Foster Wallace)

Three Rules of Work:
Out of clutter find simplicity;
from discord find harmony;
in the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.
(Albert Einstein)

Great acts are made up of small deeds.
(Lao Tzu)

Less is more.
(Ludwig Mies van der Rohe)

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
(Leonardo da Vinci)

The secret of happiness, you see, is not found in seeking more,
but in developing the capacity to enjoy less.

Fear less, hope more;
eat less, chew more;
whine less, breathe more;
talk less, say more;
love more, and all good things will be yours.
(Swedish proverb)

You can stick the bloated, gas-ridden Powaqqatsi synths up your gaping anal cavity.
