No Vietnamese Ever Called Me Nigger: Wise words of the former world-famous professional boxer Muhammad Ali. In an era defined by endless war—when he was drafted and was told that he must fight the communists—his reply was, “No Vietnamese ever called me a nigger”. Consequently, Ali was stripped of his title, expelled from boxing and sentenced to five years in prison.

[…] There must always be the human voice. For if music is the one art to which all others aspire, the human voice is the instrument all others seek to imitate (that includes trombones, maracas, piccolos, kettledrums, pianos, tin cans, and electronic belches.) Therefore those composers who today treat the voice as a “mechanical” instrument are exercising as vain a contradiction as that practiced by women who now tease their real hair so that it will resemble the wigs they can’t afford.

-in Ned Rorem’s last diary — Nov 18th, 1963 (via fachyeahoperasingers)
