Without music, life would be a mistake.
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.
If music be the food of love, play on.
Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.
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.
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.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
Ludwig van Beethoven
