Franz Schubert
Quotations



"Enviable Nero, who had the strength to destroy a loathsome people to the sound of music and song."
 
"When I wished to sing of love, it turned to sorrow. And when I wished to sing of sorrow, it was transformed for me into love. "
 
"No one understands another's grief, no one understands another's joy... My music is the product of my talent and my misery. And that which I have written in my greatest distress is what the world seems to like best."
 
"O Mozart, immortal Mozart, how many, how infinitely many inspiring suggestions of a finer, better life you have left in our souls!"
