"If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music.

I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music. I get the most joy in life out of music."

Byzantine Chant: Turn Not Thy Face

Turn Not Thy Face 
Medieval Byzantine Chant of the Great Lent.
Title: "Μη αποστρέψης" (Turn not Thy face)

Turn not thy face away from thy servant
For I am afflicted
Quickly hear me
Attend unto my soul and deliver it

Verse 3: Seek God, and your soul shall live.
