It Might Be Said of Arvo Part

“It is one thing to invent,” says Silkin; it is “quite another to submit one’s imagination to another’s, or to the collective imagination, and extend it, adding something new and harmonious.”

-Paul Fussell, The Great War and Modern Memory, 253 quoting Jon Silkin’s Out of Battle.

Might be said, of course, of a few other exceptional blokes.
