from thousands of famous people

There Is Pleasure In The Pathless Woods, There Is Rapture In The Lonely Shore, There Is Society Where None Intrudes, By The Deep Sea, And Music In Its Roar I Love Not Man The Less, But Nature More.
~ George Gordon Byron
Without Music Life Would Be A Mistake.
~ Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
No One Imagines That A Symphony Is Supposed To Improve In Quality As It Goes Along, Or That The Whole Object Of Playing It Is To Reach The Finale. The Point Of Music Is Discovered In Every Moment Of Playing And Listening To It. It Is The Same, I Feel, With The Greater Part Of Our Lives, And If We Are Unduly Absorbed In Improving Them We May Forget Altogether To Live Them.
~ Alan B. Watts

This Disgrace To Civilization Should Be Done Away With At Once. Heroism At Command, Senseless Brutality, Deplorable Patriotism, How Violently I Hate All This, How Despicable And Ignoble War Is; I Would Rather Be Torn To Shreds Than Be Part Of So Base An Action! It Is My Conviction That Killing Under The Cloak Of War Is Nothing But An Act Of Murder.
~ Albert Einstein

When Words Leave Off, Music Begins.
~ Thomas Carlyle
