Sunday Citar - Legends of Music

artist unknown

Happy Sunday everyone! I thought it would be interesting to share quotes from some legendary musical performers for today's Sunday Citar.

Visit Fresh Mommy for more quotes to ponder :)

My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all.

John Lennon

Ability may get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there.
Stevie Wonder

Musicians don't retire; they stop when there's no more music in them.
Louis Armstrong

It's like a novelist writing far out things. If it makes a point and makes sense, then people like to read that. But if it's off in left field and goes over the edge, you lose it. The same with musical talent, I think.
Johnny Cash

This is what I want in heaven... words to become notes and conversations to be symphonies.
Tina Turner

I really like the quote by Louis Armstrong. It just totally makes sense. I don't think that you would ever get sick of singing. But if there is no music left - you just have no choice. Happy Sunday!

Great food for thought, I like them all. The Tina Turner one is absolutely beautiful. I read it several times. A nice post and the painting is a great choice.

Those quotes are as lovely as poetry!

I completely relate to the "stopping when there is no more music in" you quote. I've switched from playing the piano to singing, and it is such a relief ~ it was as if there really wasn't any more music in me for the piano. It must have all switched to my voice! Have a wonderful week!

I like Johnny Cash's the best.

You never want to come out from left field and lose the audience that you worked so hard to cultivate.
