Music quotes
Music
Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, gaiety and life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is god, just, and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but never less, dazzaling, passionate, and eternal form.

- Plato
Music is the fourth great material want, first food, then clothes, then shelter, then music.

- Bovee, Christian Nevell
The notes I handle no better than many pianists. But the pauses between the notes --ah, that is where the art resides.

- Schnabel, Artur
If a thing isn't worth saying, you sing it.

- Pierre Beaumarchais
Film music should have the same relationship to the film drama that somebody's piano playing in my living room has to the book I am reading.

- Stravinsky, Igor
Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas ... with the music at top volume and at least a pint of ether.

- Hunter S. Thompson
JEWS-HARP, n. An unmusical instrument, played by holding it fast with the teeth and trying to brush it away with the finger.

- Ambrose Bierce
Most of us die with much of our beautiful music still in us, un-sung, un-played.

- Bright, Grant M.
We fight our way through the massed and leveled collective safe taste of the Top 40, just looking for a little something we can call our own. But when we find it and jam the radio to hear it again it isn't just ours -- it is a link to thousands of others who are sharing it with us. As a matter of a single song this might mean very little; as culture, as a way of life, you can't beat it.

- Marcus, Greil
I think no woman I have had ever gave me so sweet a moment, or at so light a price, as the moment I owe to a newly heard musical phrase.

- Stendhal, Henri B.
Without music to decorate it, time is just a bunch of boring production deadlines or dates by which bills must be paid.

- Zappa, Frank
Death is the king of this world: 'Tis his park where he breeds life to feed him. Cries of pain are music for his banquet

- Eliot, George
If Beethoven had been killed in a plane crash at the age of 22, it would have changed the history of music... and of aviation.

- Tom Stoppard
The soundtrack to Indecent Exposure is a romantic mix of music that I know most women love to hear, so I never keep it far from me when women are nearby.

- Fabio
In the depths of every heart, there is a tomb and a dungeon, though the lights, the music, and revelry above may cause us to forget their existence, and the buried ones, or prisoners whom they hide. But sometimes, and oftenest at midnight, those dark receptacles are flung wide open. In an hour like this, when the mind has a passive sensibility, but no active strength; when the imagination is a mirror, imparting vividness to all ideas, without the power of selecting or controlling them; then pray that your grieves may slumber, and the brotherhood of remorse not break their chain.

- Hawthorne, Nathaniel
The classics are only primitive literature. They belong to the same class as primitive machinery and primitive music and primitive medicine.

- Leacock, Stephen B.
Rhythm and rhyme and the harmonies of musical language, the play of fancy, the fire of imagination, the flashes of passion, so hide the nakedness of a heart laid open, that hardly any confession, transfigured in the luminous halo of poetry, is reproached as self exposure.

- Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr
Men are not suffering from the lack of good literature, good art, good theatre, good music, but from that which has made it impossible for these to become manifest. In short, they are suffering from the silent shameful conspiracy (the more shameful since it is unacknowledged) which has bound them together as enemies of art and artists.

- Miller, Henry
A musicologist is a man who can read music but cannot hear it.

- Beecham, Sir Thomas
Since music is a language with some meaning at least for the immense majority of mankind, although only a tiny minority of people are capable of formulating a meaning in it, and since it is the only language with the contradictory attributes of being at once intelligible and untranslatable, the musical creator is a being comparable to the gods, and music itself the supreme mystery of the science of man, a mystery that all the various disciplines come up against and which holds the key to their progress.

- Levi-Strauss, Claude
