10 Music quotes

Alas for those that never sing,
But die with all their music in them!
-- Oliver Wendell Holmes

“Music... will help dissolve your perplexities and purify your character and sensibilities, and in time of care and sorrow, will keep a fountain of joy alive in you.” -- Dietrich Bonhoeffer

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.” -- Colossians 3:16

“Without music, life would be a mistake.” -- Friedrich Nietzsche

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

“One good thing about music: when it hits you, you feel no pain.” -- Bob Marley 

“All music is folk music.  I ain't never heard a horse sing a song.” -- Louis Armstrong

“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

“For me, singing sad songs often has a way of healing a situation. It gets the hurt out in the open into the light, out of the darkness.” -- Reba McEntire

There is in souls a sympathy with sounds:
And as the mind is pitch'd the ear is pleased
With melting airs, or martial, brisk or grave;
Some chord in unison with what we hear
Is touch'd within us, and the heart replies.
-- William Cowper
