Great Quotes

I swear I could read Terry Teachout's About Last Night for the "Almanac" quotes alone. This is a regular feature of Terry's, wherein he shares brief parcels of wisdom from things he's read along the way, and they are almost always fascinating -- they invariably make me think a bit, and despair a little more at the possibility of ever being able to capture any kind of such insight in so few words.

Anyway, three have caught my eye particularly this week: this by composer Bernard Herrmann, this by Anthony Powell, and this by Phillip Caputo.
