385，和而不同 harmony without uniformity
386，《左传》the Chronicle of Zuo
"Harmony is like cooking the thick soup. You need water, fire, vinegar, meat sauce, salt and plum to go with the fish or meat."
"It is the same when it comes to music. Only by combining the texture, length, pace, mood, tone, pitch and style rightly and executing them properly can you produce an excellent melody."
"Who can eat the soup with nothing but water in it? What ear can tolerate the same tone played repeatedly on one instrument?"
