Famous quotes containing the words scene and/or music:
“Once the state has been founded, there can no longer be any heroes. They come on the scene only in uncivilized conditions.”
—Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (17701831)
“The man that hath no music in himself,
Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds,
Is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils.
The motions of his spirit are dull as night,
And his affections dark as Erebus.
Let no such man be trusted.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
