Lee Morgan quotes

  • The more I compose, the more I know that I don't know it all. I think it's a good way to start. If you think you know it all, the work becomes a repetition of what you've already done.

  • I am the first instrument. I am the voice. I do not imitate other instruments. Other instruments imitate me.

  • Water and air He for the Tenor chose, Earth made the Base, the Treble Fame arose, To th' active Moon a quick brisk stroke he gave, To Saturn's string a touch more sore and grave. The motions strait, and round, and swift, and slow, And short and long, were mixt and woven so, Did in such artful Figures smoothly fall, As made this decent measur'd dance of all. And this is Musick.

  • A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself.

  • I don't make music for eyes. I make music for ears.

  • I am taking belly dancing now. My hips are double-jointed, so I can do it really easily.

  • Hip-hop has never had boundaries - the more adventurous it is, the more popular it seems to be.

  • I have my mother's hips...I have an apple bottom.

  • That Beatle euphoria has always been there, and it's hard to be in a room with a Beatle and try to be totally natural. You never shake that off.

  • Always with me was the inner twin: my true nature, my true self. It is timeless, free, compassionate and in love with whatever is natural to me
