Famous quotes containing the words music and/or beautiful:

    On the first days, like a piece of music that one will later be mad about, but that one does not yet distinguish, that which I was to love so much in [Bergotte’s] style was not yet clear to me. I could not put down the novel that I was reading, but I thought that I was only interested in the subject, as in the first moments of love when one goes every day to see a woman at some gathering, or some pastime, by the amusements to which one believes to be attracted.
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)

    Tanks. In any normal war they’re a beautiful sight, on your side.
    Richard Blake, and William Cameron Menzies. Col. Fielding (Millburn Stone)
