A great composition to me is.. an incarnation of a genius, of all that was ever in him of the slightest consequence.
Cardus quotes
A cultured aromatist.
Cardus
For the game is everlasting only insofar as we keep returning to it for delights put into it by countless boys of all ages.




Cardus Neville quotes
It is the only one in existence that might conceivably have been composed by God.
Cardus Neville
Dear, lovely game of cricket that can stir us so profoundly, that can lift up our hearts and break them.
Neville Cardus quotes
If a German or an Austrian, a Greek or a Bashibazouk, had composed Gerontius, the whole world would have by now admitted its qualities.
Neville Cardus
Even an ordinary broken chord is made to disclose rare beauties; we are reminded of the fairies' hazelnuts in which diamonds were concealed but you could break the shell only if your hands were blessed.
Cardus Neville quotes
Sibelius justified the austerity of his old age by saying that while other composers were engaged in manufacturing cocktails, he offered the public pure cold water.
Cardus
Often in this our life do we begin by cursing men and end by loving them. A sense of the common fallibility of all flesh makes us kin. No man is lovable who is invincible.
