  1. “The prodigy, the itinerant, and the man of fashion ruined the composer before he had even started.”
    quoted by Johannes Brahms (regarding Franz Liszt)

  2. On the other hand, Brahms was quoted as saying: “Whoever has not heard Liszt cannot even speak of piano playing”
    You see how an impression of Liszt or Brahms cam be manipulated by selecting only one quote.
    I always keep this in mind when I form an (entire)
    image and judgement of a person based on hearsay, out of context and incomplete, or passion based on ignorance of fact(s).
