“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before and, more importantly, you're Doing Something. So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life. Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it. Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”
Neil Gaiman

Cheb i Sabbah: As I've said more than once, (late great jazz trumpeter) Don Cherry was one of my mentors, having met him when I was in The Living Theater, and then ending up actually performing with him, and he was the first one to really conceive that a DJ could be a part of a band so I used to perform with him live as a DJ and I ended up also being his manager. He always said that music is a gift given to you and that's why you have to share it. But it's only a gift given to you - you're not doing much, you're doing something that already exists, but you are just putting you're own interpretation on it, you are modifying it with your own two cents, you are the conduit for this blessing that has been given to you.

From the crane we learn grace and self-control. The snake teaches us suppleness and rhythmic endurance. The praying mantis teaches us speed and patience. From the tiger, tenacity and power, and from the dragon we learn to ride the wind

Scheherezade: He said the world was an inferno full of darkness and evil, and that there were only two ways of dealing with it. The first was easy and wrong: to accept it and become part of it. The second way was harder and right: you fight it, and recognise those who aren't evil, and help them endure.

Music is the purest form of art...therefore true poets, they who are seers, seek to express the universe in terms of music... The singer has everything within him. The notes come out from his very life. They are not materials gathered from outside. Rabindranath Tagore

Istanbul, a universal beauty where poet and archeologist, diplomat and merchant, princess and sailor, northerner and westerner screams with same admiration. The whole world thinks that this city is the most beautiful place on earth.
Edmondo De Amicis

Life in Sardinia is probably the best a man can wish: twenty-four-thousands kilometers of forests, countryside, shores immersed in a miraculous sea, this corresponds to what I would suggest God to give us as Paradise.
Fabrizio De Andrè

Delhi came as a shock. There were so many people, and oh, the traffic!

“Storytellers are a threat. They threaten all champions of control. They frighten usurpers of the right-to-freedom of the human spirit - in state, in church or mosque, in party congress, in the university or wherever.”
