If music be the food of love, play on;

Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting,

The appetite may sicken, and so die.

That strain again! it had a dying fall:

O, it came o'er my ear like the sweet sound 1

That breathes upon a bank of violets,

Stealing and giving odour!

William Shakespeare, "Twelfth Night", Act 1 scene 1

I can't listen to that much Wagner. I start getting the urge to conquer Poland.

Woody Allen

Music is the wine that fills the cup of silence.

Robert Fripp

When griping grief the heart doth wound,

and doleful dumps the mind opresses,

then music, with her silver sound,

with speedy help doth lend redress.

William Shakespeare

All in all is all we are.

Kurt Cobain

Music is the art which is most nigh to tears and memory.

Oscar Wilde

Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without.


If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.

Henry David Thoreau

Music is like making love: either all or nothing.

Isaac Stern

Reading departure signs in some big airport

Reminds me of the places I've been

Visions of good times that brought so much pleasure

Makes me want to go back again

If it suddenly ended tomorrow

I could somehow adjust to the fall

Good times and riches and son-of-a-bitches

I've seen more than I can recall.
