"A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry,
and see a fine picture every day of his life
in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful,
which God has implanted in the human soul."
-- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
How much of my brain is wilfully my own? How much is not a rubber stamp of what I have read and heard and lived?
