TOTD 19 Dec 2001

...it is misleading to speak of the world as it is, or even of a single world. It makes more sense to think of various versions of the world that individuals may entertain, various characterizations of reality that might be presented in words, pictures, diagrams, logical propositions, or even musical compositions. Each of these symbol systems captures different kinds of information and hence presents different versions of reality. All we have, really, are such versions; only through them do we gain access to what we casually term "our world."

-Howard Gardner, paraphrasing Nelson Goodman

All good music resembles something. Good music stirs by its mysterious resemblance to the objects and feelings which motivated it.

-Jean Cocteau
