Boasting
Mid–January 1833. Paris. Fryderyk Chopin writes to Dominik Dziewanowski: "I am just thorn a dozen ways once. I have got into the highest society; I sit with ambassadors, princes, ministers; and even don’t know how it came about, because I did not try for it. It is a most necessary thing for me, because good taste is supposed to depend on it. At once you have a bigger talent if you have been heard at the English or Austrian embassy […]. The pupils of the Conservatoire, Moscheles’s pupils, those of Herz and Kalkbrenner – in a word, finished artists, take lessons from me and couple my name with that of Field. In short, if I were still stupider than I am, I should think myself at the apex of my career; yet I know how much I still lack to reach perfection; I see it the more clearly now that I live only among first–rank artists and know what each one of them lacks."

[English version: Chopin's Letters, E.L. Voynich, H. Opieński]
