    Portrait of James Broughton (via)

    Bunuel has Catholic zen. Dryer has Protestant zen.
    Stravinsky has Russian zen. Eisenstein almost lost his.
    Precise spontaneity is the only way of hitting the target.
    When you know how to be where you are and to do what you do, you can take any risk.
    Order does not interfere with freedom, as Bach proved.
    Bach makes all kinds of freedom live together harmoniously.
