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

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 .
Courage to strengthen, fire to blind, Music to daze, iron to bind.robert jordan
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
All my life, whenever I get bummed, nervous, anxious or sad, I use comedy and Music to get me through.Joshua Dun
I was born for soccer, just as Beethoven was born for Music.
"Naturally, since I am not concerned with normative allegations, I cannot be concerned here with the invocation of the overtone series as a 'natural' phenomenon, and that application of equivocation which then would label as 'un-natural' (in the sense, it would appear, of morally perverse) Music which is not 'founded' on it. Now, what Music, in what sense, ever had been founded on it?"milton babbitt
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
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
Music is the arithmetic of sounds as optics is the geometry of light.claude debussy
I think the first thing you should know is that nobody in country Music 'made it' the same way. It's all different. There's no blueprint for success, and sometimes you just have to work at it.Taylor Swift
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
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
"So much of what we do is ephemeral and quickly forgotten, even by ourselves, so it's gratifying to have something you have done linger in people's memories." "There’s a very basic human, non-verbal aspect to our need to make Music and use it as part of our human expression. It doesn’t have to do with body movements, it doesn't have to do with articulation of a language, but with something spiritual."john williams
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
Samjukta Panigrahi along with her guru Kelucharan Mahapatra, is credited with reviving the all but extinct Odissi dance, an ancient Indian performance form from Orissa state. Odissi is solo form that combines Music, song and a style of dance that includes a rich choreography with mudra hand gestures similar to those in other Indian genres such as Kathakali and pantomimic movement to convey complex narratives of love, personnel sacrifice and humankind’s relations to the gods.
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.
