One day in his twilight years, Johannes Brahms announced his plan to stop composing music and enjoy whatever time he had left. After some time without writing a note, Brahms buckled and produced a composition.

"I thought you weren't going to write any more," a friend remarked. "I wasn't," Brahms replied, "but after a few days away from it, I was so delighted by the thought of not writing that the music came to me without effort!"
