Jasna Veljanović-Ranković

Composer and Theorist
"Everything in nature is in constant convulsive motion whether it is born and created or is in declining and dying. Calmness is never and nowhere and even if it is present it is illusory and nevertheless serves to the motion. In this motion everything that lives is condemned, for their survival and maintenance, to the defense and the constant attention which by humans takes the shape of the sacred fear. "

From "Signs Along the Road" by Ivo Andric (1892-1975), Serbian Recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature for 1961
