He ought above all to possess the cheerful serenity of music, for after all music is nothing but an act of courage, a serene, smiling, striding forward and dancing through the terrors and flames of the world, the festive offering of a sacrifice.

-- Hermann Hesse
(in The Glass Bead Game, or Magister Ludi, 
translated by Richard and Clara Winston)
