Busy to appreciate beauty

In his 2003 book, Timeless Beauty: In the Arts and Everyday Life, British author John Lane writes about the loss of the appreciation for beauty in the modern world.

If we can't take the time out of our lives to stay a moment and listen to one of the best musicians on Earth play some of the best music ever written; if the surge of modern life so overpowers us that we are deaf and blind to something like that -- then what else are we missing?

There was a musician playing at the top of the Metro station at L'Enfant Plaza station in Washington D.C.

But no one knows that he is the best classical musician in America!
