Philosophy is the highest music.
Music is essentially useless, as is life.
Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
In music the passions enjoy themselves.
I need drama in my life to keep making music.
Of all noises, I think music is the least disagreeable.
When I die, I want people to play my music, go wild and freak out and do anything they want to do.
Hunting, fishing, drawing, and music occupied my every moment. Cares I knew not, and cared naught about them.
Music is the movement of sound to reach the soul for the education of its virtue.
Music is the effort we make to explain to ourselves how our brains work. We listen to Bach transfixed because this is listening to a human mind.
My music fights against the system that teaches to live and die.
Music is the shorthand of emotion.
Hopefully my music is medicine, some type of antidote for something or some kind of explanation or just to feel good.
I wanna show that gospel, country, blues, rhythm and blues, jazz, rock 'n' roll are all just really one thing. Those are the American music and that is the American culture.
I listen to music for emotion and I get zero emotion from rap.
Music is what I breath, what I love to do. It keeps me alive.
Who hears music feels his solitude peopled at once.
Music is the pleasure the human mind experiences from counting without being aware that it is counting.
Music is my life, it is a reflection of what I go through.
I've never seen the devil create music.
For a person as obsessed with music as I am, I always hear a song in the back of my head, all the time, and that usually is my own tune. I've done that all my life.
Certainly tolerance and acceptance were at the forefront of my music.
I always wanted my music to influence the life you were living emotionally - with your family, your lover, your wife, and, at a certain point, with your children.
I can sing very comfortably from my vantage point because a lot of the music was about a loss of innocence, there's innocence contained in you but there's also innocence in the process of being lost.
I think that is what film and art and music do; they can work as a map of sorts for your feelings.
