“Do you know what he told me after lying under a cliff for thirty six hours with two inches of his femur sticking out? He said: ‘Queenie, I think I’m going to pass out and before I do, I’m going to give you a piece of advice’ – God, I thought he was going to die and knew and was telling me what to do with his book – and he said quite solemnly: ‘Queenie, always stick to Bach and the early Italians’ – and passed out cold as a mackerel. And by God, it’s not bad advice.” ― Walker Percy
