"To live in this world, you must be able to do three things:
to love what is mortal; to hold it against your bones
knowing your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go, to let it go."
"Absorb what is useful.
Discard what is not.
Add what is uniquely your own."
"You gotta put down the ducky
if you want to play the saxophone."
