Moving Words from the Creator of 501’s

“Music is a language by whose means messages are elaborated. That such messages can be understood by the many but sent out only by few, and that [music] alone among all the languages unites the contradictory character of being at once intelligible and untranslatable – these facts make the creator of music a being like the gods…”

– Claude Lévi-Strauss

I love this quote. Not bad for a guy who designed jeans for a living…
