American Composer

Famous quotes containing the words american and/or composer:

    No man is good enough to govern another man, without that other’s consent. I say this is the leading principle—the sheet anchor of American republicanism.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    A person taking stock in middle age is like an artist or composer looking at an unfinished work; but whereas the composer and the painter can erase some of their past efforts, we cannot. We are stuck with what we have lived through. The trick is to finish it with a sense of design and a flourish rather than to patch up the holes or merely to add new patches to it.
    Harry S. Broudy (b. 1905)
