"I live neither in the past nor in
I am in the present. I cannot know what tomorrow will bring forth.
I can know only what the truth is for me today.
That is what I am called upon to serve,
and I serve it in all lucidity."
"Lucidity is the first purpose of
color in music."
~ Arnold Schoenberg
"The beginning of art is not reason. It is the buried treasure of the
unconscious... that unconscious which has more
understanding than our lucidity."
~ Edgard Varese
