As I sit here going through my notes, with a bit of time to finally process the abundant amount of information, stories, and events from the first two weeks, I'm reminded of my fascination (obsession?) with great quotes. This post will act as the first in a series of weekly posts in which I will list the top five quotes of the week in ascending order. Feel free to publicly or privately disagree with my ordering!
5. "Children who grow up in El Sistema are marinated in beauty from a very young age."

Until next week...
