Gustav Holst
Music, being identical with heaven, isn't a thing of momentary thrills, or even hourly ones. It's a condition of eternity.
Holst quotes
If nobody likes your work, you have to go on just for the sake of the work. And you're in no danger of letting the public make you repeat yourself. Every artist ought to pray that he may not be "a success". If he's a failure he stands a good chance of concentrating upon the best work of which he's capable.
Never compose anything unless the not composing of it becomes a positive nuisance to you.

Holst Gustav quotes
Always ask for advice but never take it.
Holst Gustav
One of the advantages of being over forty is that one begins to learn the difference between knowing and realising.
Gustav Holst quotes
The enormity of the universe revealed by science cannot readily be grasped by the human brain, but the music of The Planets enables the mind to acquire some comprehension of the vastness of space where rational understanding fails.
