The 13th day of my new life

I am reading a very good book about pianists. There are some quotations from it.

“Personality is the virtuoso’s one great unassailable stronghold.”

“The one thing which gives value to any piece of art, whether it be book, or picture, or music, is that subtle and evasive thing which is called personality.”

“The greatest thing in the artist’s life is work.”

“Success demands strong-willed discipline and the most lofty standards imaginable.”

“If you have the unextinguishable fire within your soul, if you have the talent from on high, if you have health,energy,system, vitality, nothing can stop you from becoming great.”
