Quote of the day, from Pablo Casals.

I'm enjoying The Brain that Changes Itself, a study of neuroplasticity - well I liked all of it except the chapter on psychoanalysis, which I considered self-serving poppycock.

I especially liked this, it makes my heart sing:

When Pablo Casals, the cellist, was ninety-one years old, he was approached by a student who asked, "Master, why do you continue to practice?"

Casals replied: "Because I am making progress."
