Trombone Quotes

"When I first saw a trombone, it looked like the instrument no sane person would want to play, so I immediately found my niche."
    -Delfeayo Marsalis

"You don't choose to play the trombone, It chooses you. It's a loud, extrovert instrument, that makes everyone sit up and take notice."
    -Simon Hogg, 
    Fine Arts Brass Ensemble

"If it please your neighbor to break the sacred calm of night with the snorting of an unholy trombone, it is your duty to put up with his wretched music and your privilege to pity him for the unhappy instinct that moves him to delight in such discordant sounds."
    -Mark Twain

"In my opinion, the trombone is the true head of this family of wind instruments, which I have named the 'epic' one. It possesses nobility and grandeur to the highest degree; it has all the serious and powerful tones of sublime musical poetry, from religious calm and imposing accents, to savage outbursts. Directed by the will of a master, the trombones can chant like a choir of priests, threaten, utter gloomy sighs, a mournful lament or a bright hymn of glory. They can break forth into awe-inspiring cries, and awaken the dead or doom the living with their fearful voices."
    -Hector Berlioz
