“I hate music, especially when it is played.”
“The man that hath no music in himself
Nor is not mov’d by concord of sweet sounds,
Is for treasons, strategems, and spoils;
The motions of his spirit are dull as night,
And his affections dark as Erebus;
Let no such man be trusted. - Mark the music”
William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice
“Classical music is the kind we keep thinking will turn into a tune”
“Hell is full of musical amateurs.”
“Paganini never repeats” Portuguese saying
“I don’t know anything about music, In my line you don’t have to.”
