Famous quotes containing the words culture and/or music:

    We now have a whole culture based on the assumption that people know nothing and so anything can be said to them.
    Stephen Vizinczey (b. 1933)

    Orpheus with his lute made trees
    And the mountain tops that freeze
    Bow themselves when he did sing.
    To his music plants and flowers
    Ever sprung, as sun and showers
    There had made a lasting spring.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
