Mark Twain Quotes about music
#6308 Henry David Thoreau

The commonest and cheapest sounds, as the barking of a dog, produce the same effect on fresh and healthy ears that the rarest music does. It depends on your appetite for sound. Just as a crust is sweeter to a healthy appetite than confectionery to a pampered or diseased one. .

Henry David Thoreau Quotes about music
#6387 Henry David Thoreau

A living dog is better than a dead lion. Shall a man go and hang himself because he belongs to the race of pygmies, and not be the biggest pygmy that he can? Let every one mind his own business, and endeavor to be what he was made. Why should we be in such desperate haste to succeed and in such desperate enterprises? 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 Quotes about music
#6803 Adlai Stevenson

The sound of tireless voices is the price we pay for the right to hear the music of our own opinions. But there is also, it seems to me, a moment at which democracy must prove its capacity to act. Every man has a right to be heard; but no man has the right to strangle democracy with a single set of vocal chords. .

Adlai Stevenson Quotes about music
#7533 P. J. O'Rourke

Asia is the continent rhythm forgot. At best Asian music is off-brand American pop, like Sonny Bono in a karaoke bar. At worst Asian music sounds as if a truck full of wind chimes collided with a stack of empty oil drums during a birdcall contest. .

P. J. O'Rourke Quotes about music
#7539 P. J. O'Rourke

Even the bad things are better than they used to be. Bad music, for instance, has gotten much briefer. Wagner's Ring Cycle takes four days to perform while "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" by the Crash Test Dummies lasts little more than three minutes. .

Henry Miller Quotes about music
#10394 Henry Miller

The man who doesn't respond to music, the man without music in his soul is not to be trusted. A man like that is cold and empty, empty to the core. .

Henry Miller Quotes about music
#10532 W. H. Auden

In societies with fewer opportunities for amusement, it was also easier to tell a mere wish from a real desire. If, in order to hear some music, a man has to wait for six months and then walk twenty miles, it is easy to tell whether the words, "I should like to hear some music," mean what they appear to mean, or merely, "At this moment I should like to forget myself." When all he has to do is press a switch, it is more difficult. He may easily come to believe that wishes can come true. .

W. H. Auden Quotes about music
#11444 Friedrich Nietzsche

Is Wagner a human being at all? Is he not rather a disease? He contaminates everything he touches - he has made music sick. .

Friedrich Nietzsche Quotes about music
#11750 Friedrich Nietzsche

All things considered, I could never have survived my youth without Wagnerian music. For I seemed condemned to the society of Germans. If a man wishes to rid himself of a feeling of unbearable oppression, he may have to take to hashish. Well, I had to take to Wagner... .

Friedrich Nietzsche Quotes about music
#11900 Ozzy Osbourne

All that stuff about heavy metal and hard rock, I don't subscribe to any of that. It's all just music. I mean, the heavy metal from the Seventies sounds nothing like the stuff from the Eighties, and that sounds nothing like the stuff from the Nineties. Who's to say what is and isn't a certain type of music? .

Ozzy Osbourne Quotes about music
#11929 Ozzy Osbourne

I miss the lack of melody [in current music] as well. I mean, a lot of people think I'm crazy for liking Creed and I like them purely because they sing! I mean, the singer of Creed sings like the guy from Pearl Jam, very close kind of voice. But I like the fact that Creed sing. I don't care if they're a Bible band, Satan band… .

Ozzy Osbourne Quotes about music
#12240 Terry Pratchett

You can’t make people happy by law. If you said to a bunch of average people two hundred years ago “Would you be happy in a world where medical care is widely available, houses are clean, the world’s music and sights and foods can be brought into your home at small cost, traveling even 100 miles is easy, childbirth is generally not fatal to mother or child, you don’t have to die of dental abcesses and you don’t have to do what the squire tells you” they’d think you were talking about the New Jerusalem and say ‘yes’. .

Terry Pratchett Quotes about music

Heinrich Heine Quotes about music
#13340 George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans)

I think I should have no other mortal wants, if I could always have plenty of music. It seems to infuse strength into my limbs, and ideas into my brain. Life seems to go on without effort, when I am filled with music. .

George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans) Quotes about music
#13671 Eleanor Farjeon

In Arcady there lies a crystal spring Ring'd all about with green melodious reeds Swaying seal'd music up and down the wind. Here on its -defaced pedestal The image of a half-forgottenCrumbles to its complete oblivion. .

Eleanor Farjeon Quotes about music

Alfred, Lord Tennyson Quotes about music
#13930 Alfred, Lord Tennyson

There is sweet music here that softer falls Than petals from blown roses on the grass, Or night-dews on still waters between walls Of shadowy granite, in a gleaming pass; Music that gentlier on the spirit lies, Than tir'd eyelids upon tir'd eyes. .

Alfred, Lord Tennyson Quotes about music

Percy Bysshe Shelley Quotes about music
#16023 Ludwig Wittgenstein

Ludwig Wittgenstein Quotes about music
#16073 Ludwig Wittgenstein

Ludwig Wittgenstein Quotes about music
#16112 Helen Keller

If it is true that the violin is the most perfect of musical instruments, then Greek is the violin of human thought. .

Helen Keller Quotes about music
#16538 Thomas Haynes Bayly

I've now got the music book ready, Do sit up and sing like a lady A recitative from Tancredi, And something about "Palpiti!" Sing forte when first you begin it, Piano the very next minute, They'll cry "What expression there's in it!" Don't sing English ballads to me! .

Thomas Carlyle Quotes about music
#17715 Thomas Carlyle

The seeing eye! It is this that discloses the inner harmony of things; what Nature meant, what musical idea Nature has wrapped up in these often rough embodiments. Something she did mean. To the seeing eye that something were discernible. Are they base, miserable things? You can laugh over them, you can weep over them; you can in some way or other genially relate yourself to them; — you can, at lowest, hold your peace about them, turn away your own and others' face from them, till the hour come for practically exterminating and extinguishing them! .

Thomas Carlyle Quotes about music
