"Even the poet whose thoughts have never found expression in a single verse, of the painter who 
possesses no colours, and has not painted so much as a single square foot of canvas, can obtain salvation, 
and be delivered from earthly desires and passions.  They can enter aat will a world of undefiled purity, 
and throwing off the yoke of avarice and self interest, are able to build up a peerless and unequaled
universe.  Thus in all this, they are happier than the rich and famous, than any lord of prince that 
ever lived; happier indeed than all those on whom this vulgar world lavishes her affections."

"Sampling is like sending a fax to yourself from the sonic debris of the future.  If the fax is a copy of 
the document you're making and sending, then it's gone.  You can send a fax anywhere.  Same with beats At
this point.  To me, the sampler is a kind of time machine.  It's a way of manipulating and reconfiguring
pieces of the past into the present and allowing permutations of the present to really reflect where music
could be going.  So you're playing with past, present, future, and the imperfect tense of language itself."
