Hell is full of musical amateurs: music is the brandy of the damned.
—George Bernard Shaw
I think I should have no other mortal wants, if I could always have plenty of music. It seems to infuse strength into my limbs and ideas into my brain. Life seems to go on without effort, when I am filled with music.
There is no feeling, except the extremes of fear and grief, that does not find relief in music.
Music is essentially useless, as life is: but both have an ideal extension which lends utility to its conditions.
Among all men on the earth bards have a share of honor and reverence, because the muse has taught them songs and loves the race of bards.
My music is best understood by children and animals.
Ah, music. A magic beyond all we do here!
—J. K. Rowling
I think everyone should have a Beatles phase in their life. I think it's part of growing up in the Western world.
—Jadelr and Cristina Cordova
Music like religion, unconditionally brings in its train all the moral virtues to the heart it enters, even though that heart is not in the least worthy.

My heart, which is so full to overflowing, has often been solaced and refreshed by music when sick and weary.
Take a music bath once or twice a week for a few seasons, and you will find that it is to the soul what the water bath is to the body.
—Oliver Wendell Holmes
