Who said it?

Can you identify the quote? (A hint is if you can recognize people).

Opera is where a guy gets stabbed in the back, and instead of dying, he sings.

Country music is three chords and the truth.

Classical music is the kind we keep thinking will turn into a tune.

Rock music in its lyrics often talks ahead of the time about what's going on in the country.

A jazz musician is a juggler who uses harmonies instead of oranges.

Music is the universal language of mankind.

There's music in the sighing of a reed;
There's music in the gushing of a rill;
There's music in all things, if men had ears:
Their earth is but an echo of the spheres.

If a composer could say what he had to say in words he would not bother trying to say it in music.

Music is the mediator between the spiritual and the sensual life.

If this word "music" is sacred and reserved for eighteenth and nineteenth century instruments, we can substitute a more meaningful term: organization of sound.
