Twelfth Night, said by Orsino, Act I, scene I.
With respect to excellence of Style and Composition, it may perhaps be said that to practised ears the most pleasing Music is such as has the merit of novelty, added to refinement, and ingenious contrivance; and to the ignorant, such as is most familiar and common.charles burney
[Music] a pederast might hum when raping a choirboy.Marcel Proust
Purandara Dasa was amongst the greatest of the saints who was not only a pioneering musician but also one of the renowned composers of Karnataka Music.
You know, traditional country Music is something that's going to be around forever.George Strait
Of all noises I think Music the least disagreeable.
I am delighted, one more time, by the daring of my species and the audacity of our flying machines. There is poetry and Music in our technology, a beauty as touching as that of eagle, moss campion, raven or yonder limestone boulder shining under the Arctic sun.edward abbey
Ah, Music! What a beautiful art! But what a wretched profession!georges bizet
Concerts are never real Music, you have to give up the idea of hearing in them all the most beautiful things of art.frédéric chopin
There are simply two kinds of Music, good Music and the other kind ... the only yardstick by which the result should be judged is simply that of how it sounds. If it sounds good it's successful; if it doesn't it has failed.duke ellington
The whole trouble with a folk song is that once you have played it through there is nothing much you can do except play it over again and play it rather louder. Most Russian Music, indeed, consists in ringing changes on this device, skilfully disguised though the fact may be.Constant Lambert
In my Music, I'm trying to play the truth of what I am. The reason it's difficult is because I'm changing all the time.Charles Mingus
"I live cinema. I chose the cinema when I was very young, sixteen years old, and from then on my memories virtually coincide with the history of the cinema ... I'm not a director with a personal style, I am simply cinema. I have grown up with and through cinema; everything that I've had in the way of education has been through the cinema; insofar as I'm interested in images, in books, in Music, it's all due to the cinema."Michael Powell
Oh, I think it was like when, you know, Cupid throws an arrow and hits you. First, there was this Mexican band, dressed up with bows and arrows. They were playing some funky weird Music,, I didn't know it yet, but it was like Lee Perry, George Clinton, and Sun Ra mixed up, Mexican funky.carlos santana
A regular Friday audience, 90 percent feminine and 100 percent well-bred, sat stoically yesterday through thirty minutes of the most cacophonous world premiere ever heard here - the first performance anywhere of a new Violin Concerto by Arnold Schoenberg. Yesterday's piece combines the best sound effects of a hen yard at feeding time, a brisk morning in Chinatown and practice hour at a busy Music conservatory. The effect on the vast majority of hearers is that of a lecture on the fourth dimension delivered in Chinese.arnold schoenberg
You just pick up a chord, go twang, and you've got Music.sid vicious
Buckingham was a sated man of pleasure, who had turned to ambition as a pastime. As he had tried to amuse himself with architecture and Music, with writing farces and with seeking for the philosopher's stone, so he now tried to amuse himself with a secret negotiation and a Dutch war.villiers, george, 2nd duke of buckingham
We had the hardware expertise, the industrial design expertise and the software expertise, including iTunes. One of the biggest insights we have was that we decided not to try to manage your Music library on the iPod, but to manage it in iTunes. Other companies tried to do everything on the device itself and made it so complicated that it was useless.steve jobs
Creative people, as I see them, are distinguished by the fact that they can live with anxiety, even though a high price may be paid in terms of insecurity, sensitivity, and defenselessness for the gift of the "divine madness" to borrow the term used by the classical Greeks. They do not run away from non-being, but by encountering and wrestling with it, force it to produce being. They knock on silence for an answering Music; they pursue meaninglessness until they can force it to mean.rollo may
I suppose every decade gets the Music it deserves.robert charles wilson
The beautiful is and remains beautiful though it arouse no emotion whatever, and though there be no one to look at it. In other words, although the beautiful exists for the gratification of an observer, it is independent of him. In this sense Music, too, has no aim (object), and the mere fact that this particular art is so closely bound up with our feelings by no means justifies the assumption that its aesthetic principles depend on this union.
Gently running made sweet Music with the enameled stones and seemed to give a gentle kiss to every sedge he overtook in his watery pilgrimage.
Since so much of this Music bubbled up urgently from my subconsious mind, I'm left to interpret it much like anyone else.
The air in Music the wing forsakes.
It is the hour when from the boughs The nightingale's high note is heard; It is the hour when lovers' vows Seem sweet in every whispered word; And gentle winds, and waters near, Make Music to the lonely ear. Each flower the dews have lightly wet, And in the sky the stars are met, And on the wave is deeper blue, And on the leaf a browner hue, And in the heaven that clear obscure, So softly dark, and darkly pure. Which follows the decline of day, As twilight melts beneath the moon away.lord byron
Rugged the breast that Music cannot tame.
