„Again he struck the harp and began the jig. But this time it was such music as never came from a harp.“
— Robertson Davies Canadian journalist, playwright, professor, critic, and novelist 1913 - 1995
Context: Again he struck the harp and began the jig. But this time it was such music as never came from a harp. It was the wildest, strangest music you ever heard, full of the sound of birds and the cries of animals and the wind and the rain, and the thunder and the lightning, and the dashing of huge waves against the shores of a great cold ocean that was formed from ice that had made its way slowly down from Ultima Thule. It was the sound of a world before mankind. It was the sound of the great merriment God must have known during the long days of Creation. Harper of the Stones (1986).
