Excerpt from Life and Letters of Berlioz, Vol. 2

J'aitant fait que nos gens enfin dons la plaine!

Berlioz, like Beethoven, was an illustrious victim of the mournful privilege of being an exception, and dearly did he pay for the heavy responsibility! The exceptions are doomed by fate to suffer, and to make others suffer also. How can the crowd (that profanum vulgus which Horace so cordially detested) be expected to recognise and confess itself incompetent before the diminutive audacity, purely personal, which has the hardihood to give the lie direct to inveterate habits and prevailing routine? Did not Voltaire, man of mind as he was, did not Voltaire say that nobody was possessed of as much mind as all the world? And is not universal suffrage, that grand conquest of our own time, the unquestionable verdict of the collective sovereign? Is not the voice of the people the voice of God?
