Leopold Stokowski takes his ideals and dreams very seriously and goes through periods of fervent dedication to a lofty ideal or vision.

Leopold Stokowski needs to learn the limits of his ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow for new life and growth.
