"Our common acquaintances used to say that he knows all languages which exist now and existed before on this planet, that he has studied all branches of science, that he knew by heart the whole of Shakespeare, Pushkin, Gogol, Aristotle and Plato, that he knows...in short that he knows everything. I couldn't help feeling that this must be an extraordinary man, that it would be difficult and awkward for an ordinary, average individual to be with him. When in 1921 one of my friends introduced me to Sollertinsky I quickly withdrew into my shell, because I felt that it would be very difficult for me to keep up an acquaintance with such an extraordinary man...
<...>
Finally, in 1927, I met him while visiting a Leningrad musician...I was very struck to observe that Sollertinsky turned out to be an unusually jovial and unaffected person, a brilliant wit and very much down-to-earth. Once more I came to realize that a truly great man is always unaffected, always modest and always has his feet firmly on the ground. Our hospitable host kept  on his guests for a long time and in the end Sollertinsky and I went home on foot. We lived close to each other in Leningrad and had to go in the same direction. The long distance seemed very short, because the walk with Sollertinsky was so relaxed: he was talking so interestingly 
about so many aspects of life and art."
