„Yesterday there was a Concert Spirituel. The symphony by Haydn was lovely and the execution very good. Mademoiselle Wendling and a Welsh tenor Giuliano were hissed. Danner and another Welsh violinist Giuliani were overall applauded. A sinfonia concertante by the brothers Thonberg [Romberg] got applause. The concert on the bassoon by Devienne so so.“

— Joseph Martin Kraus, Letter dated Paris, 3rd February 1785. To pater Roman Hofstetter in Amorbach, in: Irmgard Leux-Henschen, Joseph Martin Kraus in seinen Briefen, Stockholm 1978.

„All right, I was Welsh. Does it matter?“

— R.S. Thomas Welsh poet 1913 - 2000
Context: All right, I was Welsh. Does it matter? I spoke a tongue that was passed on To me in the place I happened to be, A place huddled between grey walls Of cloud for at least half the year. My word for heaven was not yours. The word for hell had a sharp edge Put on it by the hand of the wind Honing, honing with a shrill sound Day and night. Nothing that Glyn Dwr Knew was armour against the rain's Missiles. What was descent from him? "A Welsh Testament"

He spoke to him in the old language“

— R.S. Thomas Welsh poet 1913 - 2000
Context: Even God had a Welsh name: He spoke to him in the old language; He was to have a peculiar care For the Welsh people. History showed us He was too big to be nailed to the wall Of a stone chapel, yet still we crammed him Between the boards of a black book. "A Welsh Testament"
