Schubert


"When I visited him for the first time, and it was in winter and extremely cold, I found him in a dimly lit, damp, unheated little room; he was sitting wrapped up in an old, threadbare dressing-gown, freezing with cold,
and
-composing"

(Anselm Hüttenbrenner)

What an amazing man Schubert must have been.
Thanks for posting this quotation, Linnea. I hope it will stop me feeling sorry for myself when I'm too tired to write.

That's why I posted it, when feeling too tired :)

He must have been, his music proves it, I think.
