There is nothing greater than the joy of composing something oneself and then listening to it.
Every man has his faults; I have and so have you – you will allow me to say so!
I cannot be so bad when everybody is so fond of me.
If I have known much trouble in my youth, I have also known much joy.
Why hurry over beautiful things? Why not linger and enjoy them?
Art is a fine gift! What, indeed, is finer than to clothe one’s feelings in music, what a comfort in timI have many sorrowful hours. No pleasure is complete to me when you are not there!
Heaven lend me the strength to fulfill my duties faithfully like a good wife.
