Famous quotes containing the word music:

    But listen, up the road, something gulps, the church spire
    Opens its eight bells out, skulls’ mouths which will not tire
    To tell how there is no music or movement which secures
    Escape from the weekday time. Which deadens and endures.
    Louis MacNeice (1907–1963)
