Some of my favorite sentiments on music...


Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.
Plato

Without music, life would be a mistake.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
Jimi Hendrix

Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.
Victor Hugo

I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music.
Billy Joel

After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
Aldous Huxley

Music is everybody's possession. It's only publishers who think that people own it.
John Lennon

Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
Lao Tzu

Beautiful music is the art of the prophets that can calm the agitations of the soul; it is one of the most magnificent and delightful presents God has given us.
Martin Luther

Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
Ludwig van Beethoven

Music is the movement of sound to reach the soul for the education of its virtue.
Plato

Music is my religion.
Jimi Hendrix

It is cruel, you know, that music should be so beautiful. It has the beauty of loneliness of pain: of strength and freedom. The beauty of disappointment and never-satisfied love. The cruel beauty of nature and everlasting beauty of monotony.
Benjamin Britten

Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
Berthold Auerbach

Music can change the world because it can change people.
Bono

Music is the shorthand of emotion.
Leo Tolstoy
