Ludwig van Beethoven quotes

Don't only practice your art, but force your way into its secrets; art deserves that, for it and knowledge can raise man to the Divine.

Music is the mediator between the spiritual and the sensual life.

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.

Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.

Nothing is more intolerable than to have to admit to yourself your own errors.

This is the mark of a really admirable man: steadfastness in the face of trouble.

I will seize fate by the throat; it shall certainly never wholly overcome me.

Music is the wine which inspires one to new generative processes, and I am Bacchus who presses out this glorious wine for mankind and makes them spiritually drunken.

A great poet is the most precious jewel of a nation.

Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess?

Tones sound, and roar and storm about me until I have set them down in notes.

Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.

Only the pure in heart can make a good soup.

The barriers are not erected which can say to aspiring talents and industry, 'Thus far and no farther.'

Recommend virtue to your children; it alone, not money, can make them happy. I speak from experience.

Off with you! You're a happy fellow, for you'll give happiness and joy to many other people. There is nothing better or greater than that!

Beethoven can write music, thank God, but he can do nothing else on earth.

Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.

Friends applaud, the comedy is over.

Music comes to me more readily than words.

To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all. Oscar Wilde

The only time I can really relax is up a tree or somewhere outside. I love being outside. Tom Felton age

Let us be the ones who say we do not accept that a child dies every three seconds simply because he does not have the drugs you and I have. Let us be the ones to say we are not satisfied that your place of birth determines your right for life. Let us be outraged, let us be loud, let us be bold. Brad Pitt age
