"I believe it is the art of Listening that reveals the key to the true nature of Music, as well as to the understanding and tolerance of one's fellowman."


 

"Was Momo especially smart? Did she know how to give good advice to everyone? Did she always find the right words?
No, no more than any other child.
Did she know how to sing with an especially pleasant voice? Or to play wonderfully on an instrument? Or know how to dance or to do any acrobatics?
No, certainly not.
And perhaps she knew a mysterious spell, or to palm-read and to tell fortunes?
Neither this nor that.
What Momo knew best was how to listen. To truly listen, as only very few know how.
She simply sat and listened, with all her attentiveness and involvement. While doing this, she looked straight at the speaker with her big and dark eyes, and it was then that this person, to his utter surprise, felt that here, in his mind, appear thoughts, which he did not even presume were hidden there"

From Momo by Michael Ende.

 

"Momo's character allows me to enjoy listening in a unique way.
I can hardly wait for composing music to her..."
