Without music life would be a mistake.
If music be the food of love, play on.
It was sad music. But it waved its sadness like a battle flag. It said the universe had done all it could, but you were still alive.
As the strings of a lute are apart though they quiver the same music.
Music is the shorthand of emotion.
Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.
Music is an ocean, but the repertory is hardly even a lake; it is a pond.
Music is a moral law. It gives 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 lends to all that is good and just and beautiful.
Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world.
Martin Luther King Jr.
Poetry makes life what lights and music do the stage.
Philosophy is the highest music.
There is no feeling, except the extremes of fear and grief, that does not find relief in music.
