"There are only two things worth aiming for, good music and a clean conscience."
"One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain."Paul Hindemith on Bob Marley
"If music be the food of love, play on."Paul Hindemith on William Shakespeare
"Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything."Paul Hindemith on Plato
"Without music, life would be a mistake."Paul Hindemith on Friedrich Nietzsche
"I was born with music inside me. Music was one of my parts. Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. It was a necessity for me-like food or water."Paul Hindemith on Ray Charles
"People who make music together cannot be enemies, at least while the music lasts."
