God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
– Reinhold Niebuhr
Music is one of the noblest callings I can think of. It’s the highest of all the art forms to me. For example, if my kid said to me, ‘I want to give it all up,’ whatever it is that they’re doing, ‘and I want to take my saxophone and go out,’ I would say, ‘May God go with you. This is a great and noble thing that you’re doing.’
– Hugh Laurie
