Must it be? It Must Be. – Beethoven

One of my quiet joys is listening to Beethoven’s late string quartets – performed by the Takacs Quartet – while doing my paperwork. Now, don’t misunderstand; it’s not the paperwork that’s a joy… oh no, but the Takacs Quartet playing Beethoven makes it go so much more happily.

This Beethoven quote sums up my feelings on having to do paperwork just perfectly:

“Muss es sein? Es muss sein.”

or

“Must it be? It must be.”

(Epigraph to String Quartet in F Major, Opus 135)
