How do you feel today?    I feel ...

My faith is the grand drama of my life. I'm a believer, so I sing words of God to those who have no faith. I give bird songs to those who dwell in cities and have never heard them, make rhythms for those who know only military marches or jazz, and paint colors for those who see none.

This quote is about faith.

A bit about Olivier Messiaen ...

Olivier Messiaen (December 10, 1908 April 27, 1992) was a French composer, organist, and ornithologist. He lived in Grenoble in the French Alps during World War I, and returned there during his summers, and in his retirement, to compose. He entered the Paris Conservatoire at the age of 11, and numbered Marcel Dupr, Maurice Emmanuel and Paul Dukas among his teachers. He was appointed organist at the church of La Trinit in Paris in 1931, a post he held until his death.
