Raison d'etre

Remember, kids: perspective represents the only country that, despite infinite time and advancement, will never be fully discovered. It's all we have left to do.

He was out there, yes, but you're kidding yourself if you think out there isn't where we should all be, too, at least part of the time.

The only thing performers have left to do, in this day of super-recording techniques, and super-recording artists, and super-recording engineers; I think that all the basic statements have been made for posterity, now. I think what we must do is try to find our way around things things, try to find a raison d'etre, that is somehow different and still somehow right, that makes sense.

Glenn Gould: a genius ahead of his time.
