The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and is drawn from Camille by Alexandre Dumas:|
Marguerite, resting one hand on the piano, followed every note on
the music, accompanying it in a low voice, and when Gaston had
come to the passage which she had mentioned to him, she sang out,
running her fingers along the top of the piano:
"Do, re, mi, do, re, fa, mi, re; that is what I can not do. Over
Gaston began over again, after which Marguerite said:
"Now, let me try."
She took her place and began to play; but her rebellious fingers
always came to grief over one of the notes.
