Music quotes page 3

around - the music and the ideas.
Bob Dylan

Music is the shorthand of emotion.
Leo Tolstoy

Fashion is like music - we all have to make our own tune.
Karl Lagerfeld

Music fills the infinite between two souls. This has been muffled by the mist of our daily
habits.
Rabindranath Tagore

I believe that life exists to be enjoyed and that the most important thing is to feel good
about yourself. Each person will have his or her own vehicles for both, and those vehicles will
change over time. For some, the answer will be working with orphans, and for others, it will
be composing music. I have a personal answer to both - to love, be loved, and never stop
learning - but I don't expect that to be universal.
Tim Ferriss

As the music goes, so goes the dance.
Philippine proverb

Music is love in search of a word.
Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette

I like Wagner's music better than anybody's. It is so loud that one can talk the whole time
without people hearing what one says.
Oscar Wilde

We didn't all get into music for a job! We got into music to avoid a job, in truth - and get lots
of girls.
Paul McCartney

I call architecture frozen music.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

It was Elvis who really got me hooked on beat music. When I heard "Heartbreak Hotel" I
thought, this is it.
Paul McCartney

An ecstasy is a thing that will not go into words; it feels like music.
Mark Twain

Some people ask the secret of our long marriage. We take time to go to a restaurant two
times a week. A little candlelight, dinner, soft music and dancing. She goes Tuesdays, I go
Fridays.
Henry Youngman

Only sick music makes money today.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Gentleness is everywhere in daily life, a sign that faith rules through ordinary things: through
cooking and small talk, through storytelling, making love, fishing, tending animals and sweet
corn and flowers, through sports, music and books, raising kids - all the places where the
gravy soaks in and grace shines through.
Garrison Keillor

Every man's work, whether it be literature or music or pictures or architecture or anything
else, is always a portrait of himself.
Samuel Butler

The rock and roll business is pretty absurd, but the world of serious music is much worse.
Frank Zappa

Within a few years a simple and inexpensive device, readily carried about, will enable one
to receive on land or sea the principal news, to hear a speech, a lecture, a song or play of a
musical instrument, conveyed from any other region of the globe.
Nikola Tesla

We will miss George for his sense of love, his sense of music and his sense of laughter.
Ringo Starr

If we pay for the music we will take part in the dance.
German proverb

I sometimes think the gods have united human beings by some mysterious principle, like the
according notes of music. Or is it as Plato has supposed, that souls originally one have been
divided, and each seeks the half it lost?
Lydia Maria Child

When I die, I want people to play my music, go wild and freak out and do anything they want
to do.
Jimi Hendrix

If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michelangelo
painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep
streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, "Here lived a great
street sweeper who did his job well."
Martin Luther King Jr.

We don't have a language for the senses. Feelings are images, sensations are like musical
sounds.
Anais Nin

Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy, it is the wine of a new
procreation, and I am Bacchus who presses out this glorious wine for men and makes them
drunk with the spirit.
Ludwig von Beethoven

I consider myself a poet first and a musician second. I live like a poet and I'll die like a poet.
Bob Dylan

Laughter is the music of one's soul. One is never really poor if he can afford to laugh.
Chinese proverb

Walk tall, kick ass, learn to speak Arabic, love music and never forget you come from a long
line of truth seekers, lovers and warriors.
Hunter S. Thompson

Brahm's German Requiem made me wish I was dead.
George Bernard Shaw

Wagner's music is better than it sounds.
Mark Twain

What is too silly to be spoken can be sung.
Pierre de Beaumarchais

Ozzy Osbourne was invited to the White House to meet President Bush. Just goes to show
that if you do a lot of controlled substances and talk like a three-year-old you can go really
far in America. And Ozzy's doing okay, too.
Greg Poops

Bagpipes are the missing link between music and noise.
E. K. Kruger
