"We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children"

Native American Proverb

"I don't believe in charity. I believe in solidarity. Charity is so vertical. It goes from the top to the bottom. Solidarity is horizontal. It respects the other person and learns from the other. I have a lot to learn from other people"

Eduardo Galeano

"Accept certain inalienable truths! Prices will rise, politicians will philander, you too will get old. And when you do, you will fantasise that, when you were young, prices were reasonable, politicians were noble, and children respected their elders"

Baz Luhrmann

"Because something is happening here, but you don't know what it is. Do you, Mister Jones?"

Bob Dylan

"Teaching music is not my main purpose. I want to make good citizens. If children hear fine music from the day of their birth and learn to play it, they develop sensitivity, discipline and endurance. They get a beautiful heart"

Shinichi Suzuki
