Description

Don’t Forget to Sing in the Lifeboats: Uncommon Wisdom for Uncommon Times (Paperback)
By Kathryn & Ross Petras

Uncommon times call for uncommon wisdom. It’s inspiring to hear from people who’ve graduated from the school of hard knocks yet have kept a sense of humor: people like Twain, Voltaire, Oscar Wilde. People who’ve said the thing so well that we all wish we’d said it. People who’ve been there, done that, and refuse to sugarcoat what they’ve learned. People who know, as Sherry Hochman puts it, that “every day is a gift—even if it sucks.”

From Kathryn and Ross Petras, curators of craziness (and surprising smarts), comes a timely collection of reassuring reality:

“Why is there so much month left at the end of the money?” —John Barrymore

“October. This is one of the peculiarly dangerous months to speculate in stocks in. The others are July, January, September, April, November, May, March, June, December, August, and February.” —Mark Twain

“I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish he didn’t trust me so much.” —Mother Teresa

“When one burns one’s bridges, what a very nice fire it makes.” —Dylan Thomas

History

Music Notes

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
