The ear, the organ of fear, could have evolved as greatly as it has only 
in the night and twilight of obscure caves and woods, in accordance with 
the mode of life of the age of timidity, that is to say the longest human 
age there has ever been: in bright daylight the ear is less necessary. 
That is how music acquired the character of an art of night and twilight.
                                                                        
- Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
