5 Piano Quotes

“The pianokeys are black and White but they sound like a million colors in your mind”

 Maria Cristina Mena, The Collected Stories of Maria Cristina Mena

“When you play, never mind who listens to you.”

Robert Schumann

“The piano ain’t got no wrong notes.”

 Thelonious Monk

“The kingdom of music is not the kingdom of this world; it will accept those whom breeding and intellect and culture have alike rejected. The commonplace person begins to play, and shoots into the empyrean without effort, whilst we look up, marvelling how he has escaped us, and thinking how we could worship him and love him, would he but translate his visions into human words, and his experiences into human actions. Perhaps he cannot; certainly he does not, or does so very seldom.”

E.M. Forster, A Room with a View

“All is as if the world did cease to exist. The city’s monuments go unseen, its past unheard, and its culture slowly fading in the dismal sea.”

Nathan Reese Maher
