Famous quotes containing the word music:

    Taylor, the Shakespeare of divines.
    His words are music in my ear,
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    People today are still living off the table scraps of the sixties. They are still being passed around—the music and the ideas.
    Bob Dylan [Robert Allen Zimmerman] (b. 1941)

    And in the next instant, immediately behind them, Victor saw his former wife.
    At once he lowered his gaze, automatically tapping his cigarette to dislodge the ash that had not yet had time to form. From somewhere low down his heart rose like a fist to deliver an uppercut, drew back, struck again, then went into a fast disorderly throb, contradicting the music and drowning it.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)
