I will hear in heaven!

I want to seize fate by the throat.

Recommend to your children virtue; that alone can make them happy, not gold.Image:Beethoven.jpg

I have never thought of writing for reputation and honor. What I have in my heart must come out; that is the reason why I compose.

Music is a higher revelation than philosophy.

I wish you music to help with the burdens of life ,and to help you release your happiness to others.

What you are, you are by accident of birth; what I am, I am by myself. There are and will be a thousand princes; there is only one Beethoven.

I think it's one of the greatest tragedies mankind has ever known - the  most revered composer of all time was deaf!

I generally dislike Wagner. However, I heard a piece by him today and it was sublime and breathtakingly beautiful.
