"You have to eat a lot of Cereal to get to the Free Toy"
"Musicians Don't grow up, they just learn how to act in Public."
"If we all join together to put music in the lives of people, people will put life into music".-Hoss
" In an opera the poerty must be altogether the obedient daughter of the music."- Mozart
" Music embodies felling without forcing it to contend and combine with thought, as it is forced in most arts and especially in the art of words."-List
"Shut up and take your dissonance like a man". -Ives
"The art of music, without specific subject matter and with little specific meaning, is nonetheless a balm for the human spirit--not a refuge or escape from the realities fo exstence, but a haven wherein one makes contact with the essence of human experience. I myself take sustenance from music as one would from a spring. I invite you all to partake of that pleasure." -Aaron Copland
"I consider that music is, by its very nature, essentially powerless to express anything at all, whether a feeling, an attitude of mind, a psychological mood, a phenomenon of nature,ect.....Expression has never been an inherent property of music. That is by no means the purpose of its existence. If, as is nearly always the case, music appears to express something, this is only an illusion and not a reality. It is simply an additional attribute which, by tacit and inveterate agreement, we have lent it, thrust upon it, as a lable, a convention-- in short, an aspect which unconsicously or by force of habit, we have come to confuse with its essential being." -Stravinsky
