No one imagines that a symphony is supposed to improve in quality as it goes along, or that the whole object of it is to reach the finale. The point of music is discovered in every moment of playing and listening to it. It is the same, I feel, with the greater part of our lives, and if we are unduly absorbed in improving them, we may forget altogether to live them
