Quote of the day. Taken from Looking Backward 2000-1887, a Utopian fiction by Edward Bellamy, written in 1887.

It appears to me, Miss Leete, that if we could have devised an arrangement for providing everybody with music in their homes, perfect in quality, unlimited in quantity, suited to every mood, and beginning and ceasing at will, we should have considered the limit of human felicity already attained, and ceased to strive for further improvements.

If he only knew.

This reminds me of Capturing Sound. I think Mark Katz actually quoted that at some point in the book. Great book, I have it if you want to borrow.
