I can't believe that people really prefer to go to the concert hall under intellectually trying, socially trying, physically trying conditions, unable to repeat something they have missed, when they can sit at home under the most comfortable and stimulating circumstances and hear it as they want to hear it.

I have heard that Otaké of the Seventh Rank and Wu of the sixth rank once went to a clairvoyant and asked for advice on how to win. The proper method, said the man, was to lose all awareness of self while awaiting an adversary's play. [...] While waiting for a play he [Onoda of the Sixth Rank] would sit quietly with his eyes closed. He explained that he was ridding himself of the desire to win.
Pinguis item quae sit tellus, hoc denique pacto discimus: haud umquam manibus iactata fatiscit, Sed picis in morem ad digitos lentescit habendo.
About the sixth hour; when beasts most graze, birds best peck, and men sit down to that nourishment which is called supper.william shakespeare
