1797 - 1828
Franz Schubert was an Austrian composer of the late Classical and early Romantic eras.
📖 "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."
📖 "Anyone who loves music can never be quite unhappy."
📖 "Happy is the man who finds a true friend, and far happier is he who finds that true friend in his wife."
📖 "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."
📖 "You believe happiness to be derived from the place in which once you have been happy, but in truth it is centered in ourselves."
📖 "Every night when I go to bed, I hope that I may never wake again, and every morning renews my grief."
📖 "When all hopes of recognition or honor have faded into distant memory, when purity of heart meets sorrow of mind, when all the world seems to walk in blindness and yet a man works without wearying for that which he loves...only in this moment is passion truly understood"
📖 "Who can do anything after Beethoven?"
📖 "It sometimes seems to me as if I do not belong to this world at all. I deplore music that engenders in people not love but madness: which rouses them to scornful laughter instead of lifting their thoughts to God."
📖 "There is no such thing as happy music."
📖 "No one feels another's grief, no one understands another's joy. People imagine they can reach one another. In reality they only pass each other by."
📖 "O Mozart, immortal Mozart, how many, how infinitely many inspiring suggestions of a finer, better life you have left in our souls!"
📖 "The world resembles a stage on which every man is playing a part."
📖 "I am in the world only for the purpose of composing."
