4. "Scattered among these things are reminders that sound once existed: a metronome, a drumming pad, a guitar pick, a trumpet mouthpiece, a music stand, a tuning fork, a block of rosin...The older instruments bear the marks of those who have already played them, the scuffs and bites and dents that are the mysterious scars of sound. In their midst the house hangs, tenuous and enveloping, a sounding board waiting to be struck."

6. "The summer ended. Day by day, and taking its time, the summer ended. The noises in the street began to change, diminish, voices became fewer, the music sparse. Daily, blocks and blocks of children were spirited away. Grownups retreated from the streets, into the houses. Adolescents moved from the sidewalk to the stoop to the hallway to the stairs, and rooftops were abandoned. Such trees as there were allowed their leaves to fall - they fell unnoticed - seeming to promise, not without bitterness, to endure another year. At night, from a distance, the parks and playgrounds seemed inhabited by fireflies, and the night came sooner, inched in closer, fell with a greater weight. The sound of the alarm clock conquered the sound of the tambourine, the houses put on their winter faces. The houses stared down a bitter landscape, seeming, not without bitterness, to have resolved to endure another year."
Author: James Baldwin

But other days I would play bad chess. The time had come for me to learn the science of long-term, healthy, self-sustaining peak performance."
Author: Josh Waitzkin
10. "I could remember the details as if it had happened yesterday, even though it was hard to believe some of it had happened at all. Funerals were tricky like that. And life, I guess. The important parts you blocked out altogether, but the random, slanted moments haunted you, replaying over and over in your mind."
Author: Kami Garcia

I hardly even notice you anymore.""Okay, hold up," he says, turning to block my path. "We both know there's no way you haven't noticed all of this" — he gestures to himself — "so if you're trying to play games with me, I should let you know up front that it's not going to work.""What?" I frown. "What are you talking abou—""You can't play hard to get, kid." He raises an eyebrow. "I can't even touch you. Takes ‘hard to get' to a whole new level, if you know what I mean.""Oh my God," I mouth, eyes closed, shaking my head. "You are insane."He falls to his knees. "Insane for your sweet, sweet love!"
