Love demands all, and has a right to all.
Ludwig van Beethoven
Don't only practice your art, but force your way into its secrets; art deserves that, for it and knowledge can raise man to the Divine.
To play a wrong note is insignificant; to play without passion is inexcusable.
Tones that sound, and roar and storm about me until I have set them down in notes.
I would rather write 10,000 notes than a single letter of the alphabet.
Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess?
