Richard Rodgers to Frank Loesser

“I listened to it and jumped up from my chair to phone Frank in California and say I thought it was one of the finest pieces of songwriting I had ever heard. Today I don’t care why I thought so; I just know what it did for me and millions of others. Perhaps this sort of emotional response is all any piece needs to become a valid work of art.”
