Inspirational Music Quotes

Here are some of my favorite quotes about music. Enjoy and feel free to post your own!

"If music be the food of love, play on;
Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die.
That strain again! it had a dying fall:
O, it came o'er my ear like the sweet sound
That breathes upon a bank of violets,
Stealing and giving odor!"
- William Shakespeare, Twelfth Night
