“Film music should have the same relationship to the film drama that
somebody's piano playing in my living room has on the book I am reading.”
~ Igor Stravinsky
"Music is the shorthand of emotion."
~ Leo Tolstoy
"The whole problem can be stated quite simply by asking, “Is there a meaning
to music?” My answer would be, “Yes.” And “Can you state in so many
words what the meaning is?” My answer to that would be, “No.”"
~ Aaron Copland
"One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain."
