Words Of Wisdom From Thelonious Monk

Thelonious Monk Jr. posted this picture of his dad's notes on his facebook page.  I think this sums up the jazz musician's creed.  Here are some of the notes that stand out:

"Just because you're not a drummer doesn't mean you don't have to keep time"
"When you're swinging, swing some more"
"A genius is the one most like himself"
"Always leave them wanting more"
"A note can be as small as a pin or as big as the world, it depends on your imagination"
