Edward German
My music cannot possibly have given you one hundredth part of the joy your music has given me.
German quotes
There is only one man to follow me who has genius, and that is Edward German.
If you can't do anything as good as or even better than what you have already done, then don't do it.

German Edward quotes
I should like to shake Eric Coates but I won't. When I meet him he says, "I just love every note you have written." and I believe he does--but--as you say--well!
German Edward
I am one of those men who never enter into controversies but I shall certainly speak my views to anybody whom I may meet on the subject.
Edward German quotes
It is an immortal masterpiece. Anybody and everybody today would, I should say, give the rest of their lives to have written it. Anyway I would.
