Famous quotes containing the word music:

    There was never yet such a storm but it was Æolian music to a healthy and innocent ear.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Franceska: I was happy in the life I built up for myself. I put a fine high wall of music around me and nothing could touch me. I was safe and secure. And then you had to come along and knock it all down and I hate you for that.
    Maxwell: On the contrary, you love me.
    Muriel Box (b. 1905)

    Your remark that clams will lie quiet if music be played to them, was superfluous—entirely superfluous.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
