Amy Fay et al. in Weimar - June, 1873

from Music-Study in Germany: The Classic Memoir of the Romantic Era, page 223:

One day, when I was playing, I made too much movement with my hand in a rotatory sort of a passage where it was difficult to avoid it. "Keep your hand still, Fräulein," said Liszt; "don't make omelette." I couldn't help laughing, it hit me on the head so nicely.
