Excerpt from Days With the Great Composers: Third Series; Mozart, Schumann, Tschaikovsky
For a few minutes the composer knelt in prayer: the despondency which was gradually enshrouding him fell off for a while, revealing rifts of heavenly sunshine to his troubled mind. Again he reﬂected, in the words he had written as a youth: I have God always before my eyes, I acknowledge His omnipotence. I fear His wrath, but I also acknowledge His love, His pity and His mercy towards His creatures. Whatsoever is according to His will, is also according to mine: therefore I cannot fail to be happy and contented. And he rose from his knees refreshed.
