From Death Masks of the Famous, by R.J. Evans, on Socyberty:

“One of the most acclaimed composers of all time, Beethoven is justly famous for composing much of his work after he became completely deaf.  This condition led him on many occasions to commit suicide but it wasn’t that which killed him.”

I guess the old saying is true: you can’t keep a good composer down.
