Develop interest in life as you see it in people, things, literature, music - the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself.
- Henry Miller
To stop the flow of music would be like the stopping of time itself, incredible and inconceivable.
- Aaron Copland
Military justice is to justice what military music is to music.
- Georges Clemenceau
Words are the pen of the heart, but music is the pen of the soul.
- Shneur Zalman
No Voice; but oh! the silence sank like music on my heart.
- Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Classical music is the kind we keep thinking will turn into a tune.
- Kin Hubbard
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, senseless brutality, deplorable patriotism, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be part of so base an action! It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder.
- Albert Einstein
Where painting is weakest, namely, in the expression of the highest moral and spiritual ideas, there music is sublimely strong.
- Mrs. Stowe
