The music that can deepest reach, And cure all ill, is cordial speech
For me music is a vehicle to bring our pain to the surface, getting it back to that humble and tender spot where, with luck, it can lose its anger and become compassion again.
Ballroom is two people dancing together to music, touching in perfect harmony
Medicine, to produce health, has to examine disease; and music, to create harmony, must investigate discord.
Nature contains the elements, in colour and form, of all pictures, as the keyboard contains the notes of all music. But the artist is born to pick and choose... that the result may be beautiful ñ as the musician gathers his notes, and forms his chords, until he brings forth from chaos glorious harmony...
There is music wherever there is harmony, order, or proportion.
In family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony
The laws of morals and the laws of music are the same.
There is always music amongst the trees in the garden, but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it.
Philosophy is the highest music
Breadbaking is one of those almost hypnotic businesses, like a dance from some ancient ceremony. It leaves you filled with one of the world's sweetest smells... there is no chiropractic treatment, no Yoga exercise, no hour of meditation in a music-throbbing chapel, that will leave you emptier of bad thoughts than this homely ceremony of making bread
We could say that meditation doesn't have a reason or doesn't have a purpose. In this respect it's unlike almost all other things we do except perhaps making music and dancing. When we make music we don't do it in order to reach a certain point, such as the end of the composition. If that were the purpose of music then obviously the fastest players would be the best. Also, when we are dancing we are not aiming to arrive at a particular place on the floor as in a journey. When we dance, the journey itself is the point, as when we play music the playing itself is the point. And exactly the same thing is true in meditation. Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment.

The romantic embrace can only be compared with music and with prayer.
A stream is music and motion: smooth glides, fast, turbulent riffles and deep pools, each posing a special challenge
The drama embraces and applies all the beauties and decorations of poetry. The sister arts attend and adorn it. Painting, architecture, and music are her handmaids. The costliest lights of a people's intellect burn at her show. All ages welcome her.
Music is the only sensual pleasure without vice
The architect must not only understand drawing, but music.
Writing about music is like dancing about architecture.
Architecture is petrified music.
It pains me to watch the human suffering taking place in the gulf region of my country. I will be reaching out to others within the music industry to join me in helping to bring relief and hope to these resilient people who have lost everything.
Music is only love looking for words
Who hears music, feels his solitude peopled at once.
Music is the shorthand of emotion.
..... to be whole and harmonious, man must also know the music of the beaches and the woods. He must find the thing of which he is only an infinitesimal part and nurture it and love it, if he is to live.
