Just because I can't, and other music quotes

"Just because I can't sing, doesn't mean I won't sing." -- Snoopy (Charlie Brown's dog)

"A song does not exist until it is sung, or re-created, by a human voice. Every incarnation is different, and so one sound is the only right one. This is a paradox. A page of music seems to present a finished product, yet it contains no sound. (Hold it up to your ear: Can you hear it?) The song doesn’t live until it comes off the page and resumes its natural state as sound. The page can no more substitute for living sound than a recipe can for edible food." -- Alice Parker

"Sing so they can hear you!" -- Unknown
