Alan Watts

In music, one doesn’t make the end of a composition the point of the composition. If that was so, the best conductors would be those who played fastest. And there would be composers who wrote only finales. People go to concerts to hear one crashing chord, ‘cause that’s the end! Same way in dancing; you don’t aim at a particular spot in the room: that’s where you should arrive; the whole point of dancing is the dance.
