Quote from the above:
“One day work is hard, and another day it is easy; but if I had waited for inspiration I am afraid I should have done nothing. The miner does not sit at the top of the shaft waiting for the coal to come bubbling up to the surface. One must go deep down, and work out every vein carefully.”
- Sir Arthur Seymour Sullivan,
[from SIR ARTHUR SULLIVAN: LIFE-STORY, LETTERS AND REMINISCENCES, (London: James Bowden, 1899) p.223-24].
