Claude Debussy in a letter
to Raoul Bardac

"Time spent carefully creating the atmosphere in which a work of art
must move is never wasted. As I see it, one must never be in a hurry to
write things down. One must allow the complex play of ideas free rein:
how it works is a mystery and we too often interfere with it by being
impatient- which comes from being too materialistic, even cowardly,
though we don't like to admit it."
