If the opera bores you, do not go to the Metropolitan just because it is fashionable to do so. If, on the other hand, you think “I do not like opera because my musical taste is undeveloped, but nevertheless I will attend the best operas until I gradually develop that taste,” that is a splendid policy. Honesty is the first step in self-development. ~ Fox, Emmet. Find and Use Your Inner Power (p. 175). New Albany. Kindle Edition.
