To be a good loser is to learn how to win.
Quality is not an act, it is a habit.
To know oneself, one should assert oneself.
Expect problems and eat them for breakfast.
If you've got a talent, protect it.
Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.
Only the educated are free.
After a storm comes a calm.
Be gentle to all and stern with yourself.
Always desire to learn something useful.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
If music be the food of love, play on.
Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.
Without music, life would be a mistake.
I was born with music inside me. Music was one of my parts. Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. It was a necessity for me-like food or water.
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music.
Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
