Quotation of the Day: Poetic, Optimistic, Speech Teacher Edition

Brian Eno, from a LA Times interview
We are all singing. We call it speech, but we’re singing to each other, and I thought, as soon as you put spoken word onto music, you start to hear it like singing anyway. You start to develop musical value and musical weight, and you start to notice how this word falls on that beat, and so on and so on. So in a way I think I was trying to draw more attention to the fact that everybody is a singer --  everybody who uses their voice is kind of singing. And that was a big liberation for me, to realize that.
