Quote of the Week

Something from Jim Steinman, the musician, who wrote Bat Out Hell and died a few days ago (1947-2021).

“If you don’t go over the top, you can’t see what’s on the other side.”

Reminds me slighly of Kurt Vonnegut’s quote: “I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can’t see from the center.” And this, of course, harks back to Guillaume Apollinaire’s ‘Come to the edge’ quote.
