On music.

“It is cruel, you know, that music should be so beautiful. It has the beauty of loneliness of pain: of strength and freedom. The beauty of disappointment and never-satisfied love. The cruel beauty of nature and everlasting beauty of monotony.” – Benjamin Britten

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

“Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.” – Victor Hugo

“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.” – Plato

“Music is everybody’s possession. It’s only publishers who think that people own it.”  – John Lennon

“Music is my religion.”  – Jimi Hendrix

“Music is the shorthand of emotion.”  – Leo Tolstoy

“When words leave off, music begins.”  – Heinrich Heine
