Each generation imagines itself to be more intelligent than the one that went before it, and wiser than the one that comes after it
~ George Orwell (June 25, 1903 - January 21, 1950)
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?
~ David Ogilvy (June 23, 1911 - July 21, 1999)
