Musical Quote for Today

"We are the music-makers
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lonely sea breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moonlight gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world forever, it seems."
—Arthur O'Shaughnessy, Ode
