“To give way to human feelings, to overflow & swim in human feelings, is human enough, but the farthest north of humanness is, for me, to be a lightning conductor of such feelings in such a way that they are particularly fitted to fill niches in coming men’s minds & sit itchingly and inflamingly like small fishhooks in men’s consciousness throout changing customs and different rules for playing cricket.”—Percy Grainger, 10 November 1907, in a letter to his mother.
