    What a wonderful quote from Vonnegut, who once suggested as his epitaph,
    “THE ONLY PROOF HE NEEDED/ FOR THE EXISTENCE OF GOD / WAS MUSIC.”
    When aspiring writers asked his advice about learning the craft, Vonnegut would say, “Avoid semicolons.”

    I think Bill Evans said somewhere that he’d practiced at home a great deal, but that
    he didn’t think he’d had one moment of his practicing and learning that “felt like work.” It was all play.

    And I think Edvard Grieg once said that the artist is an optimist to his last breath.
