Are the people inside the school musical and the ones outside unmusical?“

„I was born with music inside me.“

—  Ray Charles American musician 1930 - 2004

Home, p. 8
Brother Ray : Ray Charles' Own Story (1978)
Kontext: 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.

„In the negro melodies of America I discover all that is needed for a great and noble school of music.“

—  Antonín Dvořák Czech composer 1841 - 1904

Interviewed by James Creelman, New York Herald, May 21, 1893.
Kontext: In the negro melodies of America I discover all that is needed for a great and noble school of music. They are pathetic, tender, passionate, melancholy, solemn, religious, bold, merry, gay or what you will. It is music that suits itself to any mood or any [[purpose. There is nothing in the whole age of composition that cannot be supplied with themes from this source. ]]
