“'Sound' is a catch-all word which describes 'all that we hear,' in one lump, from music to noise. ... we consider the kingdom of our eyes far more complex, and would not dream of trying to sum it up in a word which would mean 'all that we see.'”
“A piano is full of suppressed desires, recalcitrance, inhibition, conflict.”
“Inside the piano there are a thousand irregularities: 'tis the nature of the beast. Despite it all, we continue to think we are hearing something beautiful, and so we are. Our ears, our hearts, forgive. Music could even be defined by what we happen to be forgiving at a particular time in history.”
Anita T. Sullivan, U.S. writer
