Hector Berlioz
Quotations



"Music is at once the product of feeling and knowledge, for it requires from its disciples, composers and performers alike, not only talent and enthusiasm, but also that knowledge and perception which are the result of protracted study and reflection."
 
"To render my works properly requires a combination of extreme precision and irresistible verve, a regulated vehemence, a dreamy tenderness, and an almost morbid melancholy. "
 
"Which of these two powers, love or music, can elevate man to the sublimest heights? Why separate them? They are the two wings of the soul."
 
"Time is a great teacher, but unfortunately it kills all its pupils."
