Music | Quotes Posts !

I love music. I play, piano ( well I try .. I don't mind being bad, I actually kind of enjoy it ), Guitar ( Badly to accompany my songs ), Ukulele ( because my sisters awesome and got me one for my birthday ), Drums ( why the hell not ;) ) and I sing . Singing is my passion and song writing has been my passion for a few years now as well as doing exams in musical theatre. I can't explain what a massive part of my life music is and I think it's also a massive part of a lot of peoples lives. Music is the one thing that connects us because it can be a million different things so can fit anyone :) So over the years I've collected a lot of beautiful quotes about music so today I thought I'd share them with you !

"Music is a safe kind of high" 
- Jimi Hendrix

" You know what music is ? God's little reminder that there's something else besides us in this universe; harmonic connection between all living things everywhere, even the stars. "
- Robin Williams 

" Some people have lives; some people have music "
- John Green ( Will Grayson, Will Grayson ) 

"And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music."
- Friedrich Nietzsche 

"A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song. "
- Maya Angelou 

"I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everybody loves music. "
- Billy Joel 

"To play a wrong note is insignificant; to play without passion is inexcusable."
- Ludwig Van Beethoven ( This ones my favourite ) 

"The only escapes from the miseries of life are music and cats.. "
- Albert Schweitzer 

"Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness."
- Maya Angelou

As usual, let me know in the comments; which ones your favourite or do you have a favourite that's not here ? I'd also love to hear what music means to you :) If there's any other quotes posts you'd like to see then just let me know !

Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :)

  1. I seriously can't wait for the day I hear you sing and play Marianne *Super Star Marianne!!!* You are so talented to be able to pick up so many instruments and oh my god I am so jealous that you can sing!!! ... I sound like a dying cat... Music has been there for me so many times when I've felt alone or misunderstood and it's been the only thing that I feel has got me at times. Music is truly such a beautiful thing that lights up the universe. My favourites have to be Billy Joel's and John Green's. Have a gorgeous day you Super Star!!! <3

    1. Aww thank you Rainbow ! I don't play any of them particularly well I just kind of embrace being a bit rubbish because I mainly play to accompany my singing :) Aww I think the day my singing will be on the internet is a long way off but if I'm honest I've been thinking about it a lot more recently so who knows ! Hey, I like cats ( not so much the dying part hehe ) but that still says something ;) I completely relate, I don't know what I'd do without music ... probably be less glittery :)

      Lots of love, Marianne xxx

  2. That Robin Williams quote :D SO good! You are sooooo talented my beautiful friend! I play a bit of piano but that's as far as my musical prowess goes. I wish I could sing, I mean I still do, but very badly LOL! My husband is an amazing bass player, I feel like we need to get you, me, Rainbow and the hubby together and start some sort of band. Hahahaha. I'm not saying it would be good, but how much fun would we have? I always love coming to your blog, you make me so happy and positive for my day ahead! Love and hugs to you my beautiful friend and happy weekend! XO -Kim

    1. I love that one ! I absolutely adore playing piano, it's my favourite instrument to be bad at ... my teacher says I'm playing the piece wrong and I tell her I'm just playing it in an impressionistic way haha :) My boyfriend plays bass as well ! What a strange coincidence <3 You're right we could be "The Busking Bloggers " hehe :)

      Lots of love, Marianne xxx

    2. Pretty sure if we lived in the same country we'd be baking buddies while our men played bass in the background hahaha! Love and hugs your way my friend! XO -Kim

  3. These quotes are so beautiful, thank you for sharing! I've also been singing for awhile (first in choir, then a cappella). When I was younger I learned how to play the violin, but now I'm very much out of practice. Lately I've been teaching myself the uke and guitar :) -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

    1. I'm glad you like them ! I'd love to sing in a choir, it must be such an amazing thing to do :) Violin is a very impressive and difficult instrument, if you could ever play it then in my eyes you're a genius ;) I love my guitar, I'm not good at playing but I love it and if anyone touches my guitar ... well lets just say they know about it haha !

      Lots of love, Marianne xxx

  5. Music truly is one of the most amazing things in the world. It can make me feel a wide range of emotions depending on the mood of the music or the memories it reminds me of. :]

  8. OMG! Marianne you are like a musical prodigy :D haha. You are so talented :) I bet you have a beautiful voice!! <3 I love what you said about music and how it kind of gives us something to connect with others about. I think that music is just beautiful and it speaks words that we can't even express. I'm not really talented in the music department haha but I do love to listen to it. I don't really have a specific genre that I love more than the others, I just love to listen to anything that sounds beautiful you know? :D All of these quotes are great! I especially love all of them! hahaha. I love the quote " Music speaks what cannot be expressed soothes the mind and gives it rest heals the heart and makes it whole flows from heaven to the soul." Hope you're having a lovely week Marianne :) x
