George Gershwin
Quotations



"True music must repeat the thought and inspirations of the people and the time. My people are Americans and my time is today."
 
"By concentrating on precision, one arrives at technique, but by concentrating on technique one does not arrive at precision."
 
"Many people say that too much study kills spontaneity in music, but although study may kill a small talent, it is a must to develop a big one"
