the stretched soul

It is the stretched soul that makes music, and souls are stretched by the pull of opposites: opposite bents, tastes, yearnings, loyalties. Where there is no polarity, where energies flow smoothly in one direction, there will be much doing but no music.
--Eric Hoffer (1902-1983)  American Writer.
