((60) Keep your knives sharp! Laboring with
a dull knife’s edge is like having to think hard
with bad ideas.
(61) Essential Art? The question of
which musical body we consider primary—
that of the large orchestra or the small
intrumental ensemble or soloist— is
related to the similar question in literature
of which form we see as more important—
the full-length novel or the shorter poem.
In both cases, I would argue for the latter.
This is perhaps especially so
in times of metaphysical crisis such as
the current era, because economy of means
allows for, and strongly encourages,
both the cleaning up of waste and
contradiction, as well as
the clarification of essence.
