The love you give is better than the love you get.
To create music that as a positive effect, that brings others to a better place. To make a better world than the one we live in.
" Music, I insist, must in spite of everything be beautiful. I do not understand the arguments of those composers who tell me that the music of our time must be ugly because it gives expression to an ugly age. Why does an ugly age need expression? And what is left to music if it is denuded of beauty? What mission has it, then, as art? No. Theories are all very fine. But a composer should not compose his music to theories. He should create musical beauty directly from his heart, and he should feel intensely what he is composing.
