Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who could not hear the music. - Angela Monet

If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music. . – Albert Einstein

Man, if you gotta ask you'll never know. - Louis Armstrong

"Let your freak flag fly." -Jimi Hendrix

You've got to fly like an eagle, growl like a lion in Africa, swim like the salmon home from the sea, to walk like me you've got to walk like a panther tonight. – All Seeing Eye

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

Music is your own experience, your thoughts, your wisdom. If you don't live it, it won't come out of your horn. - Charlie Parker

Music is the silence between the notes. - Claude Debussy

It is the stretched soul that makes music, and souls are stretched by the pull of opposites-opposite bents, tastes, yearnings, loyalties. Where there is not polarity-where energies flow smoothly in one direction-there will be much doing but no music. - Eric Hoffer

Sometimes the lights all shining on me and other times i can barely see, lately it occurs to me, what a long strange trip it's been. - Grateful Dead

When I hear music, I fear no danger. I am invulnerable. I see no foe. I am related to the earliest times, and to the latest. - Henry David Thoreau

"The one thing that can solve most of our problems is dancing." - James Brown

"Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery. None but ourselves can free our minds." - Bob Marley

It occurred to me by intuition, and music was the driving force behind that intuition. My discovery was the result of musical perception. - Albert Einstein on his theory of relativity

Like us, music expresses itself through time, but that linear motion also conceals a more complex temporal field, a nest of beat cycles and refrains and eternal returns. When we are enraptured or deeply moved by music, or tranced out on the club floor, we shift away from clock-time. Music reveals time itself as a mystery, a mystery that is perhaps the most basic condition of consciousness. Perhaps this is why music remains the most 'spiritual' of arts, even as it keeps hot young bodies pumping across the globe. Music models the invisible world. - Erik Davis

To hell with reality! I want to die in music, not in reason or in prose. People don't deserve the restraint we show by not going into delirium in front of them. - Louis-Ferdinand Céline
