'Here is one of the great paradoxes, that no broadcast is more impressive than the silence following the last dashing strokes of Big Ben. The impressiveness is intensified by the fact that the silence is not a dead silence, for Big Ben strikes the hour, and then the bickering of sparrows, the crisp rustle of falling leaves, the creasing of pigeon wings as they take flight, uneasy at the strange hush, contrast with the traffic din of London some minutes before ... our job is to reduce all local noises to the right proportions, so that the silence may be heard for what it really is, a solvent which destroys personality and gives us leave to be great and universal.'

'Our bodies are surrounded by air. Air fills space completely. But we are not clearly conscious of the existence of air in our daily lives. We notice air's existence somehow by the actions of vibration, heat and light. Air appears as a medium in our observation. Air spreads physical vibration into a space like a spring. Next, a time difference appears in the sound depending on the form of the space. Movement of this medium is greatly concerned with space and time. Moreover, it is also concerned with movement from past to present and from far to near. It is interesting to observe movement of this medium by physical vibration even without discovering its cause. We can find beautiful order there.'

'I think everyone's bisexual to some degree or another; it's just a question of whether or not you choose to recognize it and embrace it. Personally, I think choosing between men and women is like choosing between cake and ice cream. You'd be daft not to try both when there are so many different flavors.'
'No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible.'
