"Do not be tense, just be ready, not thinking but not dreaming,
not being set but being flexible. It is being wholly and quietly alive,
aware and alert, ready for whatever may come." "Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless,
and add what is specifically your own."
"It is merely simplicity; the ability to express the utmost
with the minimum."
"I'd been studying the microphone for a dozen years when I suddenly saw what I'd been doing wrong. I'd been singing too loud. One night I was listening to a record by Lester Young, the horn player, and it came to me. Relax, just relax. It's all going to be all right." ~Marvin Gaye
