Quotations about Music 1

If a composer could say what he had to say in words he would not bother trying to say it in music.  ~Gustav Mahler

Why waste money on psychotherapy when you can listen to the B Minor Mass?  ~Michael Torke

And the night shall be filled with music,
And the cares that infest the day
Shall fold their tents like the Arabs
And as silently steal away.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, The Day Is Done

He who sings scares away his woes.  ~Cervantes

Music was my refuge.  I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.  ~Maya Angelou, Gather Together in My Name
