Take a music bath once or twice a week for a few seasons, and you will find that it is to the soul what the water bath is to the body.
- Oliver Wendell Holmes
Why should we be in such desperate haste to succeed, and in such desperate enterprises? If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.
- Henry David Thoreau, "Walden"
Of all the music that reached farthest into heaven, it is the beating of a loving heart.
- Henry Ward Beecher
Good music is good music, and everything else can go to hell.
- Dave Matthews, VH1 Special: Trey And Dave Go To Africa
I write music with an exclamation point
- Richard Wagner
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
When words fail, music speaks.
- Hans Christian Anderson
If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music he hears, how ever measured or far away.
- Henry David Thoreau
