Thomas Moore in Sloperton Cottage, Bromham, Wiltshire - 28 October, 1818, at night

from Diary of Thomas Moore, 28 October 1818, page 206:

Trying to be busy, but not doing much. Before going to bed, played over some of Haydn’s quartetts, and a lesson or two of Kozeluch’s. I used to like Kozeluch as a boy, and expected more in him now than I find. This is the way in everything; the pleasure of being easily pleased seldom survives our youth.
