This weeks quote is by the German composer, pianist and conductor of the Romantic period, Johannes Brahms (1833-1897). I absolutely love playing Brahms’ clarinet sonatas, I just wish I could play them better!
“Without craftsmanship, inspiration is a mere reed shaken in the wind.”
This year marks the 50 year anniversary of the publication of The Carpet People by Terry Pratchett. Pratchett wrote the book when he was 17 years old, but he later re-wrote the book when he was a well established author.
Due to this and because Pratchett is one of my all time favourite authors I have gone for a quote by Pratchett.
“A good bookshop is just a genteel Black Hole that knows how to read.”
It is time for another quote. The quote today is by the author and lay theologian Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963). He is best known for his works The Screwtape Letters, The Chronicles of Narnia and The Space Trilogy.
“You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.”
