🔹 “Art is the creation of forms expressive of human feeling.” —Susanne K. Langer, Feeling and Form.
 
*
“Beethoven's Soundtrack to the Birth of Modernity” •••, by Jeffrey A. Tucker, who sees the symphony as a microscopic image of social order.
*

🔹 Henry Clay Frick: An Intimate Portrait ••• by Martha Sanger •••
*
“The eternal question. Had Frick not fallen into protracted mourning would he have created the Frick Collection? Or if he had resolved his grief, how would the Collection he created have differed? Creativity, I believe, is often the antidote for protracted pain and longing.” —the author

Glyph 554 : Beethoven, on music, a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy
*
“Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy, the wine which inspires one to new generative processes, and I am the Bacchus who presses out this glorious wine for mankind and makes them spiritually drunken. When they have again become sober they have drawn from the sea all that they can bring to dry land ... music is the incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.” —attributed to Beethoven
