"The music is not in the notes,
but in the silence between."
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
This is one of the things I've really learned to appreciate about music.

In my youth, Eddie van Halen sounded like a god on guitar by playing so fast. Now, not so much. Learning to rest is much harder than playing.

Rough quote - "Beethoven's Fifth symphony begins with a rest."
Intro to Music teacher

You can hear it here, but you have to look for it.



It occurs in the first second but you notice the rest at the 2 second mark.

... Da, da-da, duhhh,... Da, da-da, dohhh.

I've never seen that symphony live, but I can imagine the conductor waving and for a split second, nothing. As if the orchestra wasn't quite ready to start...

"We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too."

JFK
Sep 12, 1962
Rice University

Because it is hard...

A challenge to overcome.

Now, it's just an excuse not to attempt anything on a grand scale with an uncertain outcome. It'll never work, costs too much, etc...

How many rockets blew up on testing before NASA was willing to put men in that capsule?

To know people is wisdom, but to know yourself is enlightenment. To master people takes force, but to master yourself takes strength. To know contentment is wealth, and to live with strength resolve. To never leave whatever you are is to abide, and to die without getting lost-that is to live on and on. ~ Lao Tzu

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.

-Steve Jobs
