Great Quotes From Music Thoughts

Looking for some interesting quotes about music and art? Or just looking for some inspiration in general? You might want to check out, a website compiled by the famous Derek Sivers. Mr. Sivers is one of my role models and someone that inspires me on a regular basis despite the fact that we’ve never met. His collection of live music quotes is the best I’ve seen, and I think you’ll have some fun exploring them.

Visit and click “Random Thought” until your hearts content. Below are a few of my favorites. I would also encourage you to submit your own quotes to Sivers’ database if you have them.
