A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself.
Abraham Maslow
A verbal art like poetry is reflective; it stops to think. Music is immediate, it goes on to become.
W. H. Auden
All good music resembles something. Good music stirs by its mysterious resemblance to the objects and feelings which motivated it.
Jean Cocteau
Commercial rock 'n' roll music is a brutalization of the stream of contemporary Negro church music an obscene looting of a cultural expression.
Ralph Ellison
Film as dream, film as music. No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls.
Ingrid Bergman
Film is one of the three universal languages, the other two: mathematics and music
Frank Capra
I am the Eggman, they are the Eggmen, I am the Walrus
John Lennon
I despise a world which does not feel that music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy
Ludwig van Beethoven
I don't give a damn about "The Missouri Waltz" but I can't say it out loud because it's the song of Missouri. It's as bad as "The Star-Spangled Banner" so far as music is concerned.
Harry S Truman
I don't think either the Offspring or Green Day started their bands with the intention of becoming so enormously popular; that sort of fell in their laps-especially the Offspring. My attitude is if somebody blunders into the level of popularity, at least remember the human factor. These guys are still human beings and hopefully still have hearts and if you keep in touch with them rather than vilify them you may be able to encourage them to go in the right direction. What I'm hoping will eventually happen is that they will grasp the amount of power and financial clout that is now at their fingertips and use those as tools to help real people with real things the way punk politics was always designed to do before, but nobody had any money.
Jello Biafra
I wrote a song, but I can't read music. Every time I hear a new song on the radio I think, "Hey, maybe I wrote that."
Stephen Wright
I've never known a musician who regretted being one. Whatever deceptions life may have in store for you, music itself is not going to let you down.
Virgil Thomson
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
If classical music is the state of the art, then the arts are in a sad state
Frank Zappa
If it is true that the violin is the most perfect of musical instruments, then Greek is the violin of human thought
Helen Keller
If music be the food of love, play on.
William Shakespeare
In music the passions enjoy themselves.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Let mortals beware of words
For with words we lie
Can speak peace
When we mean war
But song is true
Let music for peace
Be the paradigm
For peace means change
At the right time
W. H. Auden
Let them praise his name with dancing and make music to him with tambourine and harp
Life is like music; it must be composed by ear, feeling, and instinct, not by rule.
Samuel Butler
