music

If we communicated with something like music, we would never be misunderstood, because there is nothing in music to understand.

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

If in the past people would listen to music out of love for music, nowadays it roars everywhere and all the time, “regardless whether we want to hear it”, it roars from loudspeakers, in cars, in restaurants, in elevators, in the streets, in waiting rooms, in gyms, in the earpieces of Walkmans, music rewritten, reorchestrated, abridged, and stretched out, fragments of rock, of jazz, of opera, a flood of everything jumbled together so that we don’t know who composed it (music become noise is anonymous), so that we can’t tell beginning from end (music become noise has no form): sewage-water music in which music is dying.

Milan Kundera, Ignorance

Forgive me, Majesty. I am a vulgar man! But I assure you, my music is not.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

The music is not in the notes,but in the silence between.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Music touches us emotionally, where words alone can’t.

Johnny Depp

I think the music business will eventually crush me, but I… I’m ready.

Elliott Smith – Strange Parallel

In our world, I rank music somewhere between hair ribbons and rainbows in terms of usefulness. At least a rainbow gives you a tip about the weather.

Katniss, The Hunger Games

I’m not looking for absolution, forgiveness for the things I do, but before you come to any conclusions – try walking in my shoes.

Depeche Mode, Walking In My Shoes

Is this a love in disguise or just a form of modern art?

Depeche Mode, Tora! Tora! Tora!

Cleanliness only comes in small doses.

Depeche Mode, The Sweetest Condition
