Music quotes
Music
I always seem to have a vague feeling that he is a Satan among musicians, a fallen angel in the darkness who is perpetually seeking to fight his way back to happiness.

- Ellis, Havelock
The angels are so enamoured of the language that is spoken in heaven, that they will not distort their lips with the hissing and unmusical dialects of men, but speak their own, whether there be any who understand it or not.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
We are the music makers, And we are the dreamers of dreams, Wandering by lone sea-beakers, And sitting by desolate streams; World-losers and world forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams: Yet we are the movers and shakers Of the world forever, it seems.

- Arthur William Edgar O'Shaugnessy
I've outdone anyone you can name -- Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, Strauss. Irving Berlin, he wrote 1,001 tunes. I wrote 5,500.

- Brown, James
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
The greatest tragedy in America is not the destruction of our natural resources, though that tragedy is great. The truly great tragedy is the destruction of our human resources by our failure to fully utilize our abilities, which means that most men and women go to their graves with their music still in them.

- Holmes, Oliver Wendell
There is no feeling, except the extremes of fear and grief, that does not find relief in music.

- George Eliot
There's more bad music in jazz than any other form. Maybe that's because the audience doesn't really know what's happening.

- Metheny, Pat
The profession of magician, is one of the most perilous and arduous specializations of the imagination. On the one hand there is the hostility of God and the police to be guarded against; on the other it is as difficult as music, as deep as poetry, as ingenious as stage-craft, as nervous as the manufacture of high explosives, and as delicate as the trade in narcotics.

- Bolitho, William
Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage, and confidence.

- Og Mandino
SIREN, n. One of several musical prodigies famous for a vain attempt to dissuade Odysseus from a life on the ocean wave. Figuratively, any lady of splendid promise, dissembled purpose and disappointing performance.

- Ambrose Bierce
Nothing separates the generations more than music. By the time a child is eight or nine, he has developed a passion for his own music that is even stronger than his passions for procrastination and weird clothes.

- Cosby, Bill
Without Elvis, none of us could have made it.

- Holly, Buddy
How good bad music and bad reasons sound when we march against an enemy.

- Friedrich Nietzsche
We pass the word around; we ponder how the case is put by different people, we read the poetry; we meditate over the literature; we play the music; we change our minds; we reach an understanding. Society evolves this way, not by shouting each other down, but by the unique capacity of unique, individual human beings to comprehend each other.

- Lewis Thomas
Even in the saddest woman's soul there linger snatches of old music, odours of flowers long dead and turned to dust,--pleasant ghosts, which still keep her mind attuned to that which may be in others, though in her never more; till she can hear her own wedding-hymn re-echoed in the tones of every girl who loves, and see her own wedding-torch re-lighted in the eyes of every bride.

- Westward Ho! chap. xxix.
Fame and glory are fleeting, especially in the music business. That's why completing my degree and graduating from college were priorities.

- Clay Aiken
Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard are sweeter.

- Keats, John
The function of music is to release us from the tyranny of conscious thought.

- Sir Thomas Beecham
Life without music would be a mistake.

- Friedrich Nietzsche
