The most beautiful and perfect book in the world is a book with only blank pages, in the same way that the most complete language is that which lies beyond all that the words of a man can say.

I gave up facts entirely in order to have an empty mind for inspiration to come into. If your mind is full of garbage, if an inspirations comes you wouldn’t recognize it anyway. We have to practice a quiet, empty mind.

A few critics have remarked that my operas have no plot. That’s not entirely true, but I wasn’t surprised. Many contemporary operas have no plot, because our idea of what a plot means has changed a lot since the Italian composers of the nineteenth century used plot to express political ideas. So, the no-plot criticism is valid—though perhaps not particularly important. Almost all of my operas were composed without any thought of the need for a linear plot.

How about that?
That’s one of my thoughts.
I have dozens of them.
If you take a bunch of short ideas
and arrange them so that they overlap,
that’s one long idea. That’s a thought.
One time one short idea is slightly ahead of another
and another it’s not,
but they always overlap, that’s the rule.
So you get a large number of different thoughts,
because one time one short idea is slightly ahead of another and another time it’s not.
The thoughts are really different but more or less the same in the sense that they are all short, which is the important part.
The important part is to make it short.
Because nobody likes to pay attention for very long.
