Small Thoughts

Above all, it’s a desire: to share here, with you, some thoughts about Art in general, and Music in particular...

In order to do so, what could be better than the beautiful thoughts here:

Without craftsmanship, inspiration is a mere reed shaken in the wind. Johannes Brahms

Only art and science can raise men to the level of God. Ludwig van Beethoven

Music should humbly seek to please; extreme complication is contrary to art. Claude Debussy

All music should have no other end and aim than the glory of God and the soul’s refreshment; where this is not remembered there is no real music but only a devilish hubbub. Johann Sebastian Bach

Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius. Love! love! love! that’s the soul of genius. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Music is noise that thinks. [...] Art is a reflection that sends back the human soul dazzled by the splendor of beauty. Victor Hugo

The height attracts us, but not the steps that lead to it; eyes fixed on the moon, we gladly progress in the lowland. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The higher we soar the smaller we appear to those who cannot fly. Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
