Quotations: David Ogilvy – Shakespeare wrote his sonnets within a strict discipline, fourteen lines of iambic pentameter, rhyming in three quatrains and a couplet. Were his sonnets dull? Mozart wrote his sonatas within an equally rigid discipline – exposition, development, and recapitulation. Were they dull?

Jeffrey Saut – I don’t pay much attention to what the Fed says because I don’t know what they mean when they say it. It’s like Nostradamus. These folks talk in quatrains. It’s kind of comical as everyone tries to dissect this stuff.

Katayama – In spite of all the progress we seem to have made, human emotions stay the same. Deep inside our hearts, we don’t change very much. This poem was written two thousand years ago or more. It’s from a time long before the quatrains and other formal styles you’ve learned in school were established. And yet, even today, we can understand the feelings of people from that time. You don’t need education or scholarship for that. These feelings can be understood by anybody, I think.

Tahir Shah – Inscribed on it was a verse from the quatrains of Omar Khayyam, the eleventh-century Persian mystic. Reading the words aloud I prepared for a most amazing journey:The sages who have compassed sea and land,Their secret to search out and understand, my mind misgives me if they ever solve the scheme on which the universe is planned.
