The message of the symphonies of Beethoven

'The most tweeted event of the year was Beyoncé's pregnancy announcement at the MTV awards, which generated 8,868 tweets per second (TPS)' - from yesterday's Independent

'Man lives and evolves by 'eating' significance, as a child eats food. The deeper his sense of wonder, the wider his curiosity, the stronger his vitality becomes, and the more powerful his grip on his existence' - from Colin Wison's The Occult

'The message of the symphonies of Beethoven could be summarised: 'Man is not small; he is just bloody lazy'' - also from Colin Wison's The Occult .
No Beyoncé, but more wonder, vitality and Beethoven here.
