10 for 10 (9th entry): A Quote from Jazz Great Herbie Hancock
Tonight, we continue marking our tenth anniversary of blogging with an inspiring quote from noteworthy person.
The Quote of the Week and a series of quotes from people in a given, such as playwrights (Arthur Miller and Neil Simon) or punk rockers (Lou Reed of Iggy Pop) used to be standards on our two blogs, so hence we are quoting jazz great Herbie Hancock ("Watermelon Man," "Rockit") with one of his vintage quotes:
"It's a part of life to have obstacles. It's about overcoming obstacles that's the key to happiness."
SIDEBAR: We want to welcome Pope Francis to the United States, and we hope he enjoyed his time in Washington, DC, today. Somehow, we can't imagine that he will go to the 9:30 Club while he is in the nation's capital.
