Twelfth Night, said by Orsino, Act I, scene I.
Everything is flowing going somewhere, animals and so-called lifeless rocks as well as water. Thus the snow flows fast or slow in grand beauty-making glaciers and avalanches; the air in majestic floods carrying minerals, plant leaves, seeds, spores, with streams of Music and fragrance; water streams carrying rock... While the stars go streaming through space pulsed on and on forever like blood globules in Nature's warm heart.john muir
Pardon me boy is that the Chattanooga Choo-choo, Track twenty nine, Boy you can give mea shine.Mack Gordon
(Referring to the Music of Anton Bruckner) "Nightmarish hangover style" ( traumverwirrten Katzenjammerstil )eduard hanslick
Courage to strengthen, fire to blind, Music to daze, iron to bind.robert jordan
It is a mistake to think that the practice of my art has become easy to me. I assure you, dear friend, no one has given so much care to the study of composition as I. There is scarcely a famous master in Music whose works I have not frequently and diligently studied.wolfgang amadeus mozart
The world needed only two things to exist in peace : English literature – Shakespeare – and Carnatic Music which cam express everything that humans wish musically to express. Carnatic Music was the most essential Music of humanity .
I was born for soccer, just as Beethoven was born for Music.
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.wystan hugh auden
Just as my fingers on these keys Make Music, so the self-same sounds On my spirit make a Music, too. Music is feeling, then, not a sound; And thus it is that what I feel, Here in this room, desiring you, Thinking of your blue-shadowed silk, Is Music.wallace stevens
What is called Music today is all too often only a disguise for the monologue of power. However, and this is the supreme irony of it all, never before have musicians tried so hard to communicate with their audience, and never before has that communication been so deceiving. Music now seems hardly more than a somewhat clumsy excuse for the self-glorification of musicians and the growth of a new industrial sector.Jacques Attali
My area of research is something that in all fairness has no practical usability whatsoever and the thing is I'm often asked to apologize for that. It is interesting to me that people ask 'what's the point of doing that if it's not useful?' But they never ask that, or do they very rarely ask that about art or literature or Music. Those things are not gonna produce a better toaster.lawrence m. krauss
Like Music my drawings transport us to the ambiguous world of the indeterminate.Odilon Redon
Myriads of individuals, each one unique, live out their lives in rapt intercourse with one another, contribute their heart's pulses to the universal Music, and presently vanish, giving place to others. All this age-long sequence of private living, which is the actual tissue of humanity's flesh, I cannot describe. I can only trace, as it were, the disembodied form of its growth.Olaf Stapledon
To a degree which is difficult to determine, the esoteric impulse in twentieth-century Music, literature and the arts reflects calculation. It looks to the flattery of academic and hermeneutic notice. Reciprocally, the academy turns towards that which appears to require its exegetic, cryptographic skills.George Steiner
MTV has always given artists a platform to get their stories and Music out to their fans and this series reveals the unknown side of T.I.—one of the world’s greatest artists at the most precarious time in his life.t.i.
All day the head had been barely supportable but at evening a breeze arose in the West, blowing from the heart of the setting sun and from the ocean, which lay unseen, unheard behind the scrubby foothills. It shook the rusty fringes of palm-leaf and swelled the dry sounds of summer, the frog-voices, the grating cicadas, and the ever present pulse of Music from the neighbouring native huts.evelyn waugh
The passions, whether violent or not, should never be so expressed as to reach the point of causing disgust; and Music, even in situations of the greatest horror, should never be painful to the ear but should flatter and charm it, and thereby always remain Music.wolfgang amadeus mozart
Much of the Music is a Merzbild , put together from whatever came to hand. I mean, for example...the Alberti-bass horn solo accompanying the Messenger. I also mean the fusion of such widely divergent types of Music as the Folies Bergeres tune at No. 40 ('The girls enter, kicking') and the Wagnerian 7th-chords at Nos. 58 and 74."igor stravinsky
Around the seventh and eighth centuries South India saw also a great surge of devotionalism with the emergence of a number of devotee-poet singers who expressed their deep devotion in thousands of metered verse set to classical Music. ...These poet singers were the Alvars and the Nayanmars, who to a great extent constructed the foundation on which the edifice of the future Carnatic Music was built.
Purandara Dasa of the fitheenth-sixteenth century, who is said to be the father of present day classical Carnatic Music, initiated a system of teaching Carnatic Music and presented the initial scale of notes to be taught to a beginner. Purandara Dasa was a great devotee given to spending his whole life in meditation on God and singing his praises.
In a ballet performance there are typically no words spoken from the stage. The dancers must tell the audience the story (if there is a story) using only their body movements and gestures , which they execute to the accompaniment of Music . Often mime is used to relay specific elements of the story.
