Johann Sebastian Bach
"To play without passion is inexcusable!"
Ludwig van Beethoven

it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art."

"Young people can learn from my example that something can come from nothing.
What I have become is the result of my hard efforts." Franz Joseph Haydn
"Even if, in one or other of them, I had a particular word or words in mind, I would not tell anyone, because the same word means different,br>
things to different people. Only the songs say the same thing,
arouse the same feeling, in everyone -
a feeling that can't be expressed in words."
"Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius.
Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius."
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
"Some people come into our lives, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never the same."
