Found a quote by Edgard Varèse I thought was quite interesting. It is partially in response to criticism of his perceived desregard of the past...

You only have to turn to the revered past for the corroboration of my contention. The links in the chain of tradition are formed by men who have all been revolutionists! To the student of music I should say that the great examples of the past should serve as springboards from which he may leap free, into his (or her) own future.
- Edgard Varèse 1939
