Music · Quotes

“Any thinking about the forms of meaning must grapple with music . . . 

It is fair to say that our insights into the nature of music, . . . of the ways in which music comes to “possess” and affect our psyche, have not progressed decisively beyond Plato . . . Music [is] the elect companion of identity, the homecoming to that inside oneself which time has in its keeping.” 

– George Steiner
