A good composer is slowly discovered a bad composer is slowly found out.

A good composer is slowly discovered a bad composer is slowly found out.
– Ernest Newman

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.
