Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky Quote
It is a faithful friend, protector and comforter, and for its sake alone life in this world is worth living. Who knows, perhaps in heaven there will be no music. So let us live on the earth while we still have life!
As quoted in: Pyotr Ilich Tchaikovsky: play by play (HarperCollins, 1995), p. 56
