"I think it is very unlikely that I would have ever become president had I not been in school music from the time I was nine until the time I was 17. It taught me discipline and creativity. It made me see the world in different ways. It made me understand things in different ways."
- Bill Clinton

"I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for in the patterns of music and all the arts are the keys of learning."
-- Plato

“If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.”
-- Albert Einstein
