"Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent." — Victor Hugo
"My music had roots which I'd dug up from my own childhood, musical roots buried in the darkest soil." — Ray Charles
"My music has it's roots down deep in my soul, and it would not exist without me being who I am. I cannot escape its pull any more than I could escape my own identity." — Jessica Williams
"Somebody said to me, 'But the Beatles were anti-materialist.' That's a huge myth. John and I literally used to sit down and say, 'Now, let's write a swimming pool.'" — Paul McCartney
"I couldn't play that pop song for my friend, and I couldn't play in 'joints' anymore. I couldn't schmooze or hang out or drink or smoke anymore. I couldn't take the abuse. I became self-defined. I became simply me. This is the way it is, and the Music I play now is mine. Every single note means something to me and I can't play a note that isn't in my heart or omit one that is. I know that this somewhat limits my prospects for a future in the music business, and I've accepted that." — Jessica Williams [ . . . ]
