“Haluaisin kirjoittaa tuhat kertaa kulta ja vetää tuhat viivaa sen alle”.  ”I want to write tuhat kertaa kulta (a thousand times darling) and underline it a thousand times”.
During the genesis of Kullervo, Sibelius corresponded almost daily with his own bride-to-be, Aino Järnefelt. He and Aino discussed seven words with special meanings only to them.  Sibelius’s letters to Aino in this period repeatedly called her tuhatkertainen kulta (“a thousand times darling”)..
