Favorite quotes: "What is optimism? It's the passion for maintaining that all is right when all goes wrong with us." - Voltaire
"The place God calls you is where your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet." - Fredrick Buechner
"'And this is another accident,' I think to myself, 'that we have ears to hear, and that nature itself worked perfectly to calm the soul, and wind from a tornado has that perfect pitch of fear, that train rumble of death, and music, music, if it is an accident, may be one of the greatest miracles of them all, as beautiful as romance or color or the power of water." - Donald Miller

Favorite euphonium solo: Euphonium Concerto, by Linkola
