Here you’ll find some quotes about music…

Musical Owl

Music is the universal language of mankind. -Longfellow

*****

Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. -Berthold Auerbach

*****

Music is very much the same as air and water. It’s very much a natural element of the earth, you know when you hear birds, when you hear leaves crinkling on the ground, that’s music… it’s essential to the quality of life… The more you can listen to music, the better your quality of life will be.

-Christian McBride

*****

All music is what awakes from you when you are reminded by the instruments. -Whitman

*****

After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible, is music. -Aldous Huxley

*****

You must listen as if listening were your life. -Phillips Brooks

*****

Music is the sound of the circulation in nature’s veins. It is the flux which melts nature. Men dance to it, glasses ring and vibrate, and the fields seem to undulate. The healthy ear always hears it, nearer or more remote.

-Thoreau

*****

Music can noble hints impart,
Engender fury, kindle love;
With unsuspected eloquence can move
And manage all the man with secret art.

-Addison

*****

Music is not only a source of noble pleasure – everyone admits that, at any rate in theory – it is a form of intellectual and spiritual training with which we really cannot afford to dispense.

-Sir Henry Hadow

*****

Art is the Manifestation of the Spiritual by means of the Material. -Newlandsmith

*****

The history of a people are found in its songs. -George Jellinek
