Ted O’Reilly writes from Toronto:
Before Christmas (Dec. 22) you had some Plato and Aristotle observations on music. How about adding some good ol’ W. Shakespeare?
The man that hath no music in himself,
Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds,
Is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils;
The motions of his spirit are dull as night
And his affections dark as Erebus:
Let no such man be trusted.
(Merchant of Venice, Act V)
You just did. Thanks.
