Music Quotes


“Music is the wine which inspires one to new generative processes, and I am Bacchus who presses out this glorious wine for mankind and makes them spiritually drunken.” This example of music quotes may seem self-serving until you realize it was written by Ludwig van Beethoven, who created some of the most definitive classical pieces in our history. One doesn’t have to be a composer to deeply appreciate the value music has in our lives, the emotion that touches every person who enjoys it. Hopefully, music quotes will inspire the reader to partake in one of the most simple and beautiful gifts on the planet – music. Reference.com Definition of Music
