Here the sun shineth Most shadily; Here is heard an echo Of the far sea, Though far off it be.

    How vulgar, this hankering after immortality, how vain, how false. Composers are merely scribblers of cave paintings. One writes music because winter is eternal and because, if one didn't, the wolves and blizzards would be at one's throat all the sooner.
