Andres Segovia quotes (10)

Among God's creatures two, the dog and the guitar, have taken all the sizes and all the shapes, in order not to be separated from the man.
Andres Segovia   Category:

I've had three wives and three guitars. I still play the guitars.
Andres Segovia   Category:

Lean your body forward slightly to support the guitar against your chest, for the poetry of the music should resound in your heart.
Andres Segovia   Category:

The advice I am giving always to all my students is above all to study the music profoundly... music is like the ocean, and the instruments are little or bigger islands, very beautiful for the flowers and trees.
Andres Segovia   Category: Music

Andres Segovia   Category:

Andres Segovia   Category:

When one puts up a building one makes an elaborate scaffold to get everything into its proper place. But when one takes the scaffold down, the building must stand by itself with no trace of the means by which it was erected. That is how a musician should work.
Andres Segovia   Category:

Whoever heard of an electric violin, electric cello or, for that matter, an electric singer?
Andres Segovia   Category:

You know what I think? If I am tired now, I don't mind, because I have eternity to rest.
