Personal Quote:

[on the loss of his friend, Rene Morel, a master restorer of rare violins] He would put up his sleeve and say, 'You see the goose bumps. He said as long as he didn't get the goose bumps, it was not properly adjusted. I was talking to my wife today and I said, 'What am I going to do now? I'm going to have to find somebody that can produce goose bumps.'
