Famous quotes containing the words music of and/or music:
“We live in the mind, in ideas, in fragments. We no longer drink in the wild outer music of the streetswe remember only.”
—Henry Miller (18911980)
“See where my Love sits in the beds of spices,
Beset all round with camphor, myrrh, and roses,
And interlaced with curious devices
Which her apart from all the world incloses!
There doth she tune her lute for her delight,
And with sweet music makes the ground to move,
Whilst I, poor I, do sit in heavy plight,
Wailing alone my unrespected love;”
—Bartholomew Griffin (d. 1602)
