Music is love in search of a word.
      (Sidney Lanier)

In music the passions enjoy themselves.
      (Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil)

If music be the food of love, play on.
      (William Shakespeare, “Twelfth Night,” act 1 scene 1)

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