    Music quotes by:    

There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats.

    Author: Albert Schweitzer

Of all the music that reached farthest into heaven, it is the beating of a loving heart.

    Author: Henry Ward Beecher

Where painting is weakest, namely, in the expression of the highest moral and spiritual ideas, there music is sublimely strong.

    Author: Harriet Beecher Stowe

The voice of humility is God's music, and the silence of humility is God's rhetoric.

    Author: Francis Quarles

Music with dinner is an insult both to the cook and the violinist.

    Author: G.K. Chesterton

He that lives in hope dances without music.

    Author: George Herbert

We settle things by a majority vote, and the psychological effect of doing that is to create the impression that the majority is probably right. Of course, on any fine issue the majority is sure to be wrong. Think of taking a majority vote on the best music. Jazz would win over Chopin. Or on the best novel. Many cheap scribblers would win over Tolstoy. And any day a prizefight will get a bigger crowd, larger gate receipts and wider newspaper publicity than any new revelation of goodness, truth or beauty could hope to achieve in a century.

    Author: Harry Emerson Fosdick

There need not be in religion, or music, or art, or love, or goodness, anything that is against reason; but never while the sun shines will we get great religion, or music, or art, or love, or goodness, without going beyond reason.

    Author: Harry Emerson Fosdick

God is pleased with no music below so much as with the thanksgiving songs of relieved widows and supported orphans; of rejoicing, comforted, and thankful persons.

    Author: Jeremy Taylor

It is not the eye that sees the beauty of the heaven, nor the ear that hears the sweetness of music or the glad tidings of a prosperous occurrence, but the soul, that perceives all the relishes of sensual and intellectual perfections; and the more noble and excellent the soul is, the greater and more savory are its perceptions.

    Author: Jeremy Taylor

A good wife is heaven's last, best gift to man, - his gem of many virtues, his casket of jewels; her voice is sweet music, her smiles his brightest day, her kiss the guardian of his innocence, her arms the pale of his safety, her industry his surest wealth, her economy his safest steward, her lips his faithful counsellors, her bosom the softest pillow of his cares.

    Author: Jeremy Taylor

God hath divers ways into divers men. Into some he comes at noon, in the sunshine of prosperity; to some in the dark and heavy clouds of adversity. Some he affects with the music of the church; some, with some particular collect or prayer; some, with some passage of a sermon, which takes no hold of him that stands next to him. Watch the way of the Spirit of God into thee.
- John Donne
