Quotes on “music” August 27, 2012

“The voice is not only indicative of man’s character, but it is the expression of his spirit.  Other sounds can be louder than the voice, but no sound can be more living.”
– Inayat Khan

 

“When the real music comes to me–“the music of the spheres, the music that surpasseth understanding”–that has nothing to do with me, ’cause I’m just the channel.  The only joy for me is for it to be given to me, and to transcribe it like a medium… Those moments are what I live for.”
– John Lennon

“Music can name the unnamable and communicate the unknowable.”
– Leonard Bernstein
“This is what I have to say about Bach’s life work:  listen, play, love revere–and keep your mouth shut.”
– Albert Einstein

“Soul is not about black or white music.  Soul is a physical manifestation of higher consciousness.  It’s going from the right love straight out to the world, using the physical body as a springboard for an insight…  Soul is a howling at the moon–and having the moon respond.”
– Daryl Hall

“Without music, life would be a mistake….  I would only believe in a God who knew how to dance.”
– Friedrich Nietzsche

“Singing together unites those who disagree, makes friends of those at odds, brings together those who are out of charity with on another.  Who could retain a grievance against the man with whom he had joined in singing before God?”
– St. Ambrose

“If music can serve to further civilization, then it has performed its ultimate goal.”
– Bob Weir

“The man who disparages music as a luxury and nonessential is doing the nation an injury.  Music NOW, more than ever before, is a national need.”
– Woodrow Wilson

“The best way to get to know any bunch of people is to go and listen to their music.”
– Woody Guthrie

“I have always loved music; anyone who has skill in this art gains a good temperament, fitted for all things.  We must teach music in schools; a schoolmaster must have skill in music.  Neither should we ordain young men as preachers unless they have been well exercised in music.”
– Martin Luther

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, gaiety and life to everything.  It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but never less, dazzling… passionate… and eternal form.”
– Plato

“There is nothing better than music as a means for the upliftment of the soul.”
– Inayat Khan
