Thou must not think of a method

Francesco Lamperti 

Tu non devi pensare ad un metodo, altrimenti potresti perdere la voce. Madre Natura ti ha dato la voce; noi maestri cercano d'insegnare ad i scualari quello che tu pose i da natura.  
[Thou must not think of a method, otherwise thou wouldst lose thy voice. Mother Nature has given thee thy voice. We masters aim to impart to the pupils that which thou possessest from Nature.] 
Franceso Lamperti to student Fraülein Wilhelmine Triviri Ertz who taught singing at Carnegie Hall in 1896.
