Music is the universal language of mankind.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Outre-Mer: A Pilgrimage Beyond the Sea.

Sid Vicious

If music be the food of love, play on;
Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die.

O, it came o'er my ear like the sweet sound
That breathes upon a bank of violets,
Stealing and giving odour!
William Shakespeare

To soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak.

Music is the wine that fills the cup of silence.
Robert Fripp

There is sweet music here that softer falls
Than petals from blown roses on the grass,
Or night-dews on still waters between walls
Of shadowy granite, in a gleaming pass;
Music that gentlier on the spirit lies,
Than tired eyelids upon tired eyes;
Music that brings sweet sleep down from the blissful skies.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
Song of the Lotus Eaters.

Country music is three chords and the truth.
Harlan Howard

The man that hath no music in himself,
Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds,
Is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils.
William Shakespeare

For one another, though dissimilar?
