Almanac: Paul Hindemith on composition

“The road from the head to the hand is a long one while one is still conscious of it. The man who does not so control his hand as to maintain it in unbroken contact with his thought does not know what composition is. (Nor does he whose well-routined hand runs along without any impulse or feeling behind it.”
Paul Hindemith, The Craft of Musical Composition
