Music

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
Music Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Music

1.
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.

2.
The trouble with music appreciation in general is that people are taught to have too much respect for music; they should be taught to love it instead.
Stravinsky, Igor

3.
Music hath the charm to soothe a savage beast, but I'd try a revolver first.
Billings, Josh

4.
There once was a brainy baboon who always breathed down a bassoon for he said, It appears that in billions of years I shall certainly hit on a tune.
Pound, Ezra

5.
The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night, and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted.
Shakespeare, William

6.
I hate music, especially when it's played.
Jimmy Durante

7.
I think my fans will follow me into our combined old age. Real musicians and real fans stay together for a long, long time.
Raitt, Bonnie

8.
The pleasure we feel in music springs from the obedience which is in it.
Thoreau, Henry David

9.
The way to write American music is simple. All you have to do is be an American and then write any kind of music you wish.
Virgil Thomson

10.
Sounds like the blues are composed of feeling, finesse, and fear.
Gibbons, Billy

11.
Today, music heralds... the establishment of a society of repetition in which nothing will happen anymore.
Attali, Jacques

12.
You don't need any brains to listen to music.
Pavarotti, Luciano

13.
A verbal art like poetry is reflective; it stops to think. Music is immediate, it goes on to become.
Auden, W. H.

14.
Modern music is as dangerous as narcotics.
Mascagni, Pietro

15.
A lot of people are singing about how screwed up the world is, and I don't think that everybody wants to hear about that all the time.
Carey, Mariah

16.
There is two kinds of music the good and bad. I play the good kind.
Armstrong, Louis

17.
The notes I handle no better than many pianists. But the pauses between the notes --ah, that is where the art resides.
Schnabel, Artur

18.
Without music, life is a journey through a desert.
Conroy, Pat

19.
Music causes us to think eloquently.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

20.
Americans want grungy people, stabbing themselves in the head on stage. They get a bright bunch like us, with deodorant on, they don't get it.
Gallagher, Liam

21.
Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard are sweeter.
Keats, John

22.
Music makes one feel so romantic - at least it always gets on one's nerves - which is the same thing nowadays.
Oscar Wilde

23.
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

24.
Hell is full of musical amateurs: music is the brandy of the damned.
George Bernard Shaw

25.
The manner in which Americans consume music has a lot to do with leaving it on their coffee tables, or using it as wallpaper for their lifestyles, like the score of a movie --it's consumed that way without any regard for how and why it's made.
Zappa, Frank

26.
For the introduction of a new kind of music must be shunned as imperiling the whole state; since styles of music are never disturbed without affecting the most important political institutions.
Plato

27.
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

28.
They said, You have a blue guitar, you do not play things as they are. The man replied, Things as they are changed upon a blue guitar.
Stevens, Wallace

29.
Hell is full of musical amateurs.
George Bernard Shaw

30.
In sweet music is such art: killing care and grief of heart fall asleep, or hearing, die.
William Shakespeare

31.
It's a marvelous feeling when someone says I want to do this song of yours because they've connected to it. That's what I'm after.
Carpenter, Mary Chapin

32.
After silence that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
Huxley, Aldous

33.
We are aware that the conductor is not really making the music, it is making him -- if he is relaxed, open and attuned, then the invisible will take possession of him; through him, it will reach us.
Brook, Peter (Stephen Paul)

34.
Words are poor interpreters in the realms of emotion. When all words end, music begins; when they suggest, it realizes; and hence is the secret of its strange, inexpressible power.
Haweis, H. R.

35.
I wish Frank Sinatra would just shut up and sing.
Bacall, Lauren

36.

I think I should have no other mortal wants, if I could always have plenty of music. It seems to infuse strength into my limbs and ideas into my brain. Life seems to go on without effort, when I am filled with music.
George Eliot

42.
Composers shouldn't think too much -- it interferes with their plagiarism.
Dietz, Howard

43.
The high note is not the only thing.
Domingo, Placido

44.
Music is the shorthand of emotion.
Tolstoy, Count Leo

45.
Without Elvis, none of us could have made it.
Holly, Buddy

46.
I have no pleasure in any man who despises music. It is no invention of ours: it is a gift of God. I place it next to theology. Satan hates music: he knows how it drives the evil spirit out of us.
Luther, Martin

47.
Music should never be harmless.
Robertson, Robbie

48.
Music is good to the melancholy, bad to those who mourn, and neither good or bad to the deaf.
