Pupil of Liszt

Shortly after his arrival in a small city one day, Franz Liszt was visited in his hotel by a young woman who confessed that, hoping to attract a larger audience to a forthcoming concert, she had advertised herself as a "pupil of Liszt." She had come to regret her lie, she explained, and asked for his forgiveness. Liszt asked her to play one of the pieces in her repertoire. Then, after offering a few suggestions, he dismissed her with a kiss on the cheek and a word of encouragement: "Now, my dear, you can call yourself a pupil of Liszt."
