Ludwig van Beethoven A man who wrote countless pieces of music, each and every one a masterpiece in a class of its own A man who lost the will to live after the discovery he wouldn't be able to hear music, the only undisputed passion in his life, but gave up on suicide because "he couldn't bare to leave this world before he had left it with his work" A man whose composing remained as masterful during his deafness, some say it improved A man who restlessly broke the rules of music, even implementing choir in a symphony A man who has been dead for centuries, but is actually immortal and brought back to life every time his music is performed A man whose music is recognized by those that don't listen to him at all A man whose music is now considered boring by the majority and still manages to get 75 Million listeners A legend in all of its glory!

wow... the man was deaf... DEAF and he wrote this piece of music entirely in his head, he had no idea what it sounded like or what others would think, even in the performance he continued at the end because he didnt hear the orchestra stop, he didnt hear the cheers, he didnt care, he just wanted to express the inner workings of his mind through music... truly inspirational

Beethoven gives you what you are looking for before you realize you are hoping and searching. Your heart does not seem to beat quite right until that percussion resounds at the right moment and your heart thumps and responds with a resounding "yes - perfect; no other beat belonged there but the one he chose". Beethoven, perhaps understood the human heart more as being an ear to hear the soul in its journey of seeking and crying out for completion. He was less deaf than those with hearing.
