-- Giuseppe Verdi, letter, 1853

The artist must yield himself to his own inspiration... I should compose with utter confidence a subject that set my musical blood going, even though it were condemned by all other artists as anti-musical.
-- Giuseppe Verdi, letter, 1854

Stupid criticism and still more stupid praise.
-- Giuseppe Verdi, speaking of the press notices of Aida

Verdi... has bursts of marvellous passion. His passion is brutal, it is true, but it is better to be impassioned in this way than not at all. His music at times exasperates, but it never bores.
-- Georges Bizet (1818-75), letter, 1859
