Quote of the Day

A story is told of Igor Stravinsky, who was getting increasingly irritated by a talkative man in the train seat alongside him. When the man, after describing his young wife in glowing terms, reached into his pocket and pulled a wallet-sized photograph of her; Stravinsky cupped the photo in both hands, and then remarked "She is quite small, isn't she?"
