Quotations about Music 2

Were it not for music, we might in these days say, the Beautiful is dead.  ~Benjamin Disraeli

Music is what feelings sound like.  ~Author Unknown

There's music in the sighing of a reed;
There's music in the gushing of a rill;
There's music in all things, if men had ears:
Their earth is but an echo of the spheres.
~Lord Byron

Musical compositions, it should be remembered, do not inhabit certain countries, certain museums, like paintings and statues.  The Mozart Quintet is not shut up in Salzburg:  I have it in my pocket.  ~Henri Rabaud

Music is the poetry of the air.  ~Richter
