Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.
Music is well said to be the speech of angels; in fact, nothing among the utterances allowed to man is felt to be so divine. It brings us near to the infinite.
Thomas Carlyle quotes
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
Ludwig van Beethoven quotes
Every kind of music is good, except the boring kind.
Gioacchino Rossini quotes
Christianity helps us face the music even when we don't like the tune.
Phillip Brooks quotes
Where painting is weakest, namely, in the expression of the highest moral and spiritual ideas, there music is sublimely strong.
Harriet Beecher Stowe quotes
Away with old Romance! Away with novels, plots and plays of foreign courts; Away with love-verses, sugar'd in rhyme, the intrigues, amours of idlers; Fitted for only banquets of the night where dancers to late music slide; The unhealthy pleasures, extravagant dissipation of the few.
John Keats quotes
I write music with an exclamation point!
Richard Wagner quotes
Music is the arithmetic of sounds as optics is the geometry of light.
Claude Debussy quotes
There is music wherever there is harmony, order, or proportion.
Thomas C. Haliburton quotes
