I used to play flutes in an orchestra. They were easier to carry along than a contrabass. [TK]
"I really should have studied flute,
Harmonica, or chimes.
A clarinet is nice and light;
A fiddle would be fine.
But I had to take piano,
And my teacher is a brute.
He lives up seven flights of stairs.
(I wish I played the flute.)"
- Shel Silverstein
When Krishna plays the flute the whole world is . . . entranced. [The Bhagavata-Purana]
Flute music is love music from the heart. [Judith Redman Robbins]
The fluteplayer, not the flute, makes the music. [With Rumi]
The flute is the show-off of the wind section. [Garrison Keillor]
