Music Quotes

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.

Robert Aris Willmott

Nothing is capable of being well set to music that is not nonsense.

Joseph Addison

The Wedding March always reminds me of the music played when soldiers go into battle.

Heinrich Heine

Who hears music, feels his solitude peopled at once.

Robert Browning

Music without words means leaving behind the mind. And leaving behind the mind is meditation. Meditation returns you to the source. And the source of all is sound.

KABIR

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

Alan Watts

We are big fans of happy music and stuff like that.

Sebastien Lefebvre

I have always kept one end in view, namely, with all good will to conduct a well-regulated church music to the honor of God.

Johann Sebastian Bach

The stage is life, music, beautiful girls, legs, breasts, not talk or intellectualism or dried-up academics.

Harold Clurman

Music is only love looking for words

Lawrence Durrell

The truest expression of a people is in its dances and its music. Bodies never lie.

Agnes de Mille

Dancing: The vertical expression of a horizontal desire legalized by music.

George Bernard Shaw

Stone walls confine a tinker; cold iron binds a witch; but a musician's music can never be fettered, for it lives first in her heart and mind.

Charles de Lint

In the hip-hop community, it's about how real are you, or how strong can you be, and really my music just reflects me. If you can accept me, then you can accept my music.

Nick Cannon

That folk music led to learning to play, and making things up led to what turns out to be the most lucrative part of the music business - writing, because you get paid every time that song gets played.

Jackson Browne

Folk is bare bones music.

Ben Harper

Dance is music made visible.

George Balanchine

Writing about music is like dancing about architecture.

Laurie Anderson

The architect must not only understand drawing, but music.

Vitruvius Pollio

For me, the creation of a photograph is experienced as a heightened emotional response, most akin to poetry and music, each image the culmination of a compelling impulse I cannot deny. Whether working with a human figure or a still life, I am deeply aware of my spiritual connection with it. In my life, as in my work, I am motivated by a great yearning for balance and harmony beyond the realm of human experience, reaching for the essence of oneness with the Universe.

Ruth Bernhard

Music is the only sensual pleasure without vice

Samuel Johnson

The only thing that makes life endurable in this world is human love, and yet, according to Christianity, that is the very thing that we are not to have in the other world. We are to be so taken up with Jesus and angels, that we shall care nothing about our brothers and sisters that have been damned. We shall be so carried away with the music of the harp that we shall not even hear the wail of father and mother. Such a religion is a disgrace to human nature.

Robert Green Ingersoll

And sure there is music even in the beauty, and the silent note which Cupid strikes, far sweeter than the sound of an instrument; for there is music wherever there is harmony, order, or proportion; and thus far we may maintain the music of the spheres

Sir Thomas Browne

In family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony
