Ernest Newman

1868 - ?

A Quote by Ernest Newman on composers, day, inspiration, jobs, time, and work

The great composer . . . does not set to work because he is inspired, but becomes inspired because he is working. Beethoven, Wagner, Bach, and Mozart settled down day after day to the job in hand with as much regularity as an accountant settles down each day to his figures. They didn't waste time waiting for inspiration.
