“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent”
Victor Hugo

“He never went out without a book under his arm, and he often came back with two.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

“What Is Love? I have met in the streets a very poor young man who was in love. His hat was old, his coat worn, the water passed through his shoes and the stars through his soul”
Victor Hugo
