"As a child, I saw a glimpse of the pre-World War 1 world, the last afterglow of the most radiant cultural atmosphere in human history ... The existential atmosphere (which was then being destroyed by Europe's philosophical trends and political systems) still held a benevolence that would be incredible to the men of today, i.e., a smiling, confident good will of man to man and man to life." (Ayn Rand, The Romantic Manifesto).
From Franz Lehar's The Merry Widow, 1905:
"But she found a life line, thrown to her from the world abroad. It was the music of foreign operettas - of Lehar, of Kalman, of Millocker, of Offenbach - brought to Russia for the first time since the revolution. She saw Millocker's The Beggar Student eleven times; she saw Lehar's Where the Lark Sings eight times - and could not take her eyes from the backdrop on the stage, which showed the lighted street of a modern foreign city. ... Only these operettas - like the stoccato sounds of military marches and the syncopated rhythms of popular foreign tunes she had heard and loved in childhood - could offer her the life-giving reality of a world untouched by pain. She listened, feeling a still, inviolate happiness almost unbearable in its intensity." (Barbara Branden, Who Is Ayn Rand?)
