Laurens van der Post Quote – Bach

“I remembered a story of how Bach was approached by a young admirer one day and asked, ‘But, Papa Bach, how do you manage to think of all these new tunes?’
‘My dear fellow,’ Bach is said to have answered,… ‘I have no need to think of them. I have the greatest difficulty not to step on them when I get out of bed in the morning.’ ”
