„Music would take over at the point at which words become powerless, with the one and only object of expressing that which nothing but music could express.“

—  Claude Debussy French composer 1862 - 1918

As quoted in Debussy (1989) by Paul Holmes, p. 36
Contexto: Music would take over at the point at which words become powerless, with the one and only object of expressing that which nothing but music could express. For this, I need a text by a poet who, resorting to discreet suggestion rather than full statement, will enable me to graft my dream upon his dream — who will give me plain human beings in a setting belonging to no particular period or country. … Then I do not wish my music to drown the words, nor to delay the course of the action. I want no purely musical developments which are not called for inevitably by the text. In opera there is always too much singing. Music should be as swift and mobile as the words themselves.

„Art is no longer a visual sensation that we gather, like a photograph, as it were, of nature. No, it is a creation of our spirit, for which nature is only the occasion.“

„Art need no longer be an account of past sensations. It can become the direct organization of more highly evolved sensations. It is a question of producing ourselves, not things that enslave us.“

„Yes; as the music changes,
Like a prismatic glass,
It takes the light and ranges
Through all the moods that pass“

—  Alfred Noyes English poet 1880 - 1958

The Barrel Organ
Poems (1906)
Contexto: Yes; as the music changes,
Like a prismatic glass,
It takes the light and ranges
Through all the moods that pass;
Dissects the common carnival
Of passions and regrets,
And gives the world a glimpse of all
The colours it forgets.

For any eye is an evil eye
