„Music is nothing separate from me. It is me.“

—  Ray Charles, Context: Music is nothing separate from me. It is me. I can't retire from music any more than I can retire from my liver. You'd have to remove the music from me surgically — like you were taking out my appendix. Little Bit of Soul p. 307

„I was born with music inside me.“

—  Ray Charles American musician 1930 - 2004
Context: I was born with music inside me. That's the only explanation I know of, since none of my relatives could sing or play an instrument. Music was one of my parts. Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. It was a necessity for me — like food or water. Home, p. 8
