Melodies of thought

“The highest activities of consciousness have their origins in physical occurrences of the brain, just as the loveliest melodies are not too sublime to be expressed by notes.”

Playwrite and author W. Somerset Maugham with a wonderful analogy on the relationship between mind and brain. From his 1949 book A Writer’s Notebook (reissue ISBN 0140186018).
