 . . . man is a musical being.  His origin is in the spoken Word.  By sound was he sustained and by music he evolved.  One day he will recognize music as a vital factor in the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual evolution of the whole human race.

Music is the art of all the invisible things that are real.  Art, emotion, spiritual essence, consciousness -- these things are hard to prove.  Music helps you to focus on your sound.

There tend to be two different drives that lead young people toward music.  One is that music provides an escape; it takes you away from the unhappiness or torture of where you are and makes you feel less alienated -- you believe there is a place you fit in somewhere else.  The other is a sort of transcendent, spiritual feeling in the purity of music.

-- Michael Stipe
