~ Leonard Cohen

“I really like the city of Vienna. I like its art, its music, and its architecture. In short, I like the culture that Vienna represents. What really captures me is the period around 1900 – the time of Freud, Schnitzler, and Klimt. This is the period in which the modern view of the mind was born.”
~ Eric Kandel

“Modernism in Vienna brought together science and culture in a new way to create an Age of Insight that emphasized a more complex view of the human mind than had ever existed before.”
~ Eric Kandel

“Vienna, to me it was the tuning fork for the entire world. Saying the word Vienna was like striking a tuning fork and then listening to find what tone it called forth in the person I was talking to. It was how I tested people. If there was no response, this was not the kind of person I liked. Vienna wasn’t just a city, it was a tone that either one carries forever in one’s soul or one does not. It was the most beautiful thing in my life. I was poor, but I was not alone, because I had a friend.”
~ Sándor Márai

~ Alfred Schnittke

“Haydn, Beethoven, Mozart, none of them were born in Vienna. They all moved there. It became a magnet, but what made it magnetized in the first place? There has to be a seed there. In the case of Vienna of about 1780, it was this deep-seated love of music.”
~ Eric Weiner

“The Potemkin city of which I wish to speak here is none other than our dear Vienna herself.”
~ Adolf Loos

~ Gary Funk

~ Eric Weiner

~ Quentin Crisp

“Look at the snow, the woman was saying to the child. The snow absolves Vienna of its sins. The snow falls on Vienna while the missiles rain on Tel Aviv.”

There were in fact so many musicians that in apartment buildings people had to come up with a schedule – you practice at 5 p.m., I’ll practice at 6 p.m. That way the music didn’t collide with one another.”
~ Eric Weiner
