Grief too is a kind of affirmation. You have to be alive, and very brave, to mourn for those you love.

Shostakovich understood this. That is why in quartet after quartet, symphony after symphony there is that moment after the storm when the instruments lift their weary voices and start, reluctantly, to sing.

[inspired by this & this]
