Georges Bizet
Quotations



"The composer gives the best of himself to the making of a work. He believes, doubts, enthuses, despairs, rejoices, and suffers in turn. "
 
"I must have a stage. Without it, I am nothing."
 
"Worry yourself sick to get the Prix de Rome, struggle to make a good position on your return, and it will all end perhaps in death at 38."
- Bizet's comment after the death of a colleague
 
"Ah, music! What a beautiful art! But what a wretched profession!"
 
"I have always read the ancient pagans with infinite pleasure while in
Christian writers I find only system, egoism, intolerance, and a complete lack of artistic taste."
