Famous quotes containing the word musical:

    There was something refreshingly and wildly musical to my ears in the very name of the white man’s canoe, reminding me of Charlevoix and Canadian Voyageurs. The batteau is a sort of mongrel between the canoe and the boat, a fur-trader’s boat.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I think no woman I have had ever gave me so sweet a moment, or at so light a price, as the moment I owe to a newly heard musical phrase.
    Stendhal [Marie Henri Beyle] (1783–1842)

    Hell is full of musical amateurs: music is the brandy of the damned.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
