Hey all,

In this thread I would like to collect beautiful, inspirational and/or well-known quotes and sayings about music. Short poems are welcome as well. If you know who originally came up with it, then please do mention the name. If you came up with it yourself, then just mention your own name.

I’ll start off with some examples, also to show the preferred format:

“Without music life would be a mistake.” – Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

“A painter paints pictures on canvas. But musicians paint their pictures on silence.” – Leopold Stokowski

“Music is the mediator between the spiritual and the sensual life.” – Ludwig van Beethoven

Well, this one isn’t really lovely or inspirational, but it is one of my favs and should draw a smile…

“I don’t like composers who think. It gets in the way of their plagiarism.” – Howard Dietz, Composer
