Seite 143 - There, far up among its limestone crags, in a spot scarcely accessible to human foot, the peasants of the valley point out to the traveller the black mouth of a cavern, and tell him that within Barbarossa lies amid his knights in an enchanted sleep, waiting the hour when the ravens shall cease to hover round the peak, and the pear-tree [shall] blossom in the valley, to descend with his Crusaders and bring back to Germany the golden age of peace and strength and unity.
Seite 49 - Io qui Sottoscritto affermo, quanto nella supplica di Francesco Schubert in riguardo al posto musicale di Lubiana sta esposto.
Seite 5 - I sent him to attend the singingclass of Herr Michael Holzer, choirmaster in Lichtenthal. Herr Holzer often assured me, with tears in his eyes, that he had never had such a pupil ' Whenever I want to teach him anything new,' he would say,

Such as, " Natural disposition and education determine the bent of man's heart and understanding. The heart is ruler ; the mind should be. Take men as they are, not as they ought to be. Town politeness is a powerful hindrance to men's integrity in dealing with one another," and so on, whole pages in a single day.
Seite 132 - Schubert suffered from the exhaustion and relapse which is the torment of all highly sensitive and imaginative temperaments. But his troubles after all were far from imaginary. Step by step life was turning out for him a detailed and irremediable failure.
Seite 66 - La traduction francaise ne nous donne qu'une idee tres-imparfaite de ce qu'est 1'union de ces poesies presque toutes extremement belles avec la musique de Schubert, le musicien le plus poete qui fut jamais.
