He who knows other men is discerning; he who knows himself is intelligent. He who overcomes others is strong; he who overcomes himself is mighty.

4' 33"

iTunes is now offering John Cage's 4'33" as a down load.

It comes in the piano version or the whole orchestra version.

It is 4 minutes and 33 seconds of silence.

“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.” - Plato

(can people still use the word 'gaiety'?)
