“In This Day [Industrial Music Publishing]… Became Nearly My Sole Occupation”

Here is an interesting quote. Again, I’m no expert in industrial music publishing; however, I find this quote incredibly inspiring.


“In this day [music publishing], and a particularly [industrial music publishing], in the most comprehensive sense of the term, became nearly my sole occupation. I read with ardour those works, so full of genius and discrimination, which modern [musicians] have written and played on these subjects… My application was at first fluctuating and uncertain; it gained strength as I proceeded and soon became so ardent and eager that the stars often disappeared in the light of morning whilst I was yet engaged in my [studio]” (adapted from Shelley’s Frankenstein).

This quote has driven me to a level of inspiration so high in whatever I pursue. Whether I develop my skills in music or business (music business?), I look back at that quote often and feel even more driven to get the latest details and wisdom from the experts.


Perhaps it can help you, too. I wonder how much we can improve ourselves by looking a little bit more, by bringing just a little bit more quality information into our lives that we actually use.

Perhaps it would help us quite a bit to have the experts point us in the right direction–if only just a little bit more.
