There are certain pieces of music that are always attached to certain books.
- Maurice Sendak
My music is about being strong, even in your vulnerability.
- Miranda Lambert
Without a doubt, the best way to get to know me is through my music.
- Shania Twain
Music is a great natural high and a great natural escape.
- Shania Twain
Marilyn Monroe never sold a platinum album. And more people know my music than what I look like.
- Shania Twain
I realised a long time ago that instrumental music speaks a lot more clearly than English, Spanish, Yiddish, Swahili, any other language. Pure melody goes outside time.
- Carlos Santana
I became alienated from this religious upbringing, and started making music. I wanted to be a big star. All those things I saw in the films and on the media took hold of me, and perhaps I thought this was my god: the goal of making money.
- Cat Stevens
I suppose that by being absent from the music business, it appeared that I just dropped out, but really I never did. I was continuously working and doing various things.
- Cat Stevens
Music can be healing, and with my history and my knowledge of both sides of what looks like a gigantic divide in the world, I feel I can point a way forward to our common humanity again.
- Cat Stevens
If architecture is frozen music then music must be liquid architecture.
- Quincy Jones
Music in itself carries a whole set of messages which are very, very rich and complex, and the words either serve to exclude certain ones or point up certain others.
- Brian Eno
We are increasingly likely to find ourselves in places with background music. No composers have thought to write for these modern spaces, which represent 30% of our musical experience.
- Brian Eno
I got interested in the idea of music that could make itself, in a sense, in the mid 1960s really, when I first heard composers like Terry Riley, and when I first started playing with tape recorders.
- Brian Eno
Once music ceases to be ephemeral - always disappearing - and becomes instead material... it leaves the condition of traditional music and enters the condition of painting. It becomes a painting, existing as material in space, not immaterial in time.
- Brian Eno
Music is more than just listening to it. People use the music for them protection at times.
- Burning Spear
Obviously, I want to sell records, but I do it because I find it therapeutic. In music I can be myself.
- Lindsay Lohan
But only art and music have the power to bring peace.
- Yoko Ono
Music is like my security blanket.
- Yoko Ono
When I was four years old, my mother put me into a school for early music education where you get perfect pitch and harmony and composition.
- Yoko Ono
My life so common it disappears and sometimes even music cannot substitute for tears.
- Paul Simon
I hate most of what constitutes rock music, which is basically middle-aged crap.
- Sting
I was fantasising about my own death, I started thinking what my funeral would be like and what music would be played, I was at that level of insanity.
- Billy Corgan
Most of my arguments with musicians through the years have had more to do with their attitude about music, or their attitude about their own lives, or their personal responsibility. Music has never really been the big centerpiece of the fight.
- Billy Corgan
I think the amazing thing about gospel music is that not only does it lift up the death and resurrection of our Lord, which is consistent with the Gospel, but it is uniquely communicated depending upon the generation.
- T. D. Jakes
