Notes, topics or text 

"Monday night" Wittgenstein took him to the Choral Symphony.

"If one respects a person, it is difficult not to care for them as much as they care for one. Wittgenstein said he had had some great moments in his life, and one was hearing the Choral Symphony with me. I thought of no human being except you all the time—I felt shame at being unable to feel towards him as he does towards me." [Transcription has "torments" for "moments"!]

"I think this symphony is even greater than the C Minor—probably the greatest thing man has ever done." ... Loneliness and creative effort—writing not for an audience.
