by Kaikhosru Shapurji Sorabji, on a piano peice of about 4 1/2 hours:

"To the everlasting glory of those few men blessed and sanctified in the curses and execrations of those many whose praise is eternal damnation."

I have a dark suspicion that he meant the dedication as a complaint about people who didn't appreciate his music, but one is tempted to see wider application. But resist the temptation to apply it to your opponents.
