„The meanings of poetry take their growth through the interaction of the images and the music of the poem.“

—  Muriel Rukeyser poet and political activist 1913 - 1980
Context: The meanings of poetry take their growth through the interaction of the images and the music of the poem. The music is not the rhythm, which is a representation of life, alone. The music involves the interplay of the sounds of words, the length of the sequences, the keeping and breaking of rhythms, and the repetition and variation of syllables unrhymed and rhymed. It also involves the play of ideas and images. p. 31

„Only the professional remembers the music itself, timbres, tones and textures.“

—  Marvin Minsky American cognitive scientist 1927 - 2016
Context: Concrete concepts are not necessarily the simplest ones. A novice best remembers "being at" a concert. The amateur remembers more of what it "sounded like." Only the professional remembers the music itself, timbres, tones and textures.
