In today's New York Times, the obituary of a tenor who "dazzled critics" when he made his Met debut at age 85! How was he still singing? "I never had a voice, so how could I lose one?" That quotation of his is going onto my big pile of useful quotations to think about. One day I will get my safety scissors and my jar of paste and put them all into a book, like that guy who wrote that manifesto that time.
