"A more-self-contained, energetic, sincere artist I never saw. His talent amazed me; unfortunately he is an utterly untamed personality, not altogether wrong in holding the world to be detestable, but who does not make it any more enjoyable either for himself or others by his attitude."

-- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832), speaking of Ludwig van Beethoven
