"Clara has composed a series of small pieces, which show a musical and tender ingenuity such as she has never attained before. But she cannot work at it regularly, and I am often disturbed to think how many profound ideas are lost because she cannot work them out." —Robert Schumann
"Sometimes your music really frightens me, and I wonder:
Is it really true that the creator of such things is my husband?" —Clara Schumann
"I am the man who accompanied Jacqueline Kennedy
to Paris, and I have enjoyed it." —John F. Kennedy
"I think the best thing I can do is to be a distraction.
A husband lives and breathes his work all day long.
If he comes home to more table thumping,
how can the poor man ever relax?" —Jacqueline Kennedy
