QUOTE: 
"Any great work of art... revives and re-adapts time and space, and the measure
 of its success is the extent to which it makes you an inhabitant of that world-
the extent to which it invites you in and lets you breathe its strange, special air."
AUTHOR: Leonard Bernstein
MEANING OF THE QUOTE: 
"A great piece of music can transport your imagination
 back in time, ahead in the future, make you laugh
 or cry, and send you  to exotic places."
