Claude Debussy Quote
“Music is a mysterious mathematical process whose elements are part of Infinity.... There is nothing more musical than a sunset. He who feels what he sees will find no more beautiful example of development in all that book which, alas, musicians read but too little — the book of Nature.”
As quoted in The Harvard Biographical Dictionary of Music (1996) by Don Michael Randel
