„Pictures, bright pictures, oh! they are to me
A world for thought to revel in. I love
To give a history to every face, to think —
As I thought with the painter — as I knew
What his high communing had been.“

„Every picture you give me I save, and every colour you use is so true to you.“

—  Dawud Wharnsby Canadian musician 1972
Context: Every picture you give me I save, and every colour you use is so true to you. Every minute we spend I engrave, and every memory rethought is so new. There is trust that we must recognize. There is so much that we must learn to see and be, if we could only open our minds. Just grow with God and please be patient with me, and I will give you my life. "Everyday"

„A painter paints his pictures on canvas. But musicians paint their pictures on silence.“

—  Leopold Stokowski British conductor 1882 - 1977
Context: A painter paints his pictures on canvas. But musicians paint their pictures on silence. We provide the music, and you provide the silence. Addressing an audience at Carnegie Hall, as quoted in The New York Times (11 May 1967); often this is quoted without the humorous final sentence.
