Chris Thile

I definitely don’t subscribe to the theory that more instruments, or more vocal tracks, harmony, or double tracking the voice, is a good thing. People do their early albums very stripped down, then each album becomes bloated.

Elegance is usually confused with superficiality, fashion, lack of depth. This is a serious mistake: human beings need to have elegance in their actions and in their posture because this word is synonymous with good taste, amiability, equilibrium and harmony.
Paulo Coelho
I’ve met some of the most interesting, dimensional, and kind people of my life in that subculture and around the sport. And it seems to me that boxing is one of those structures that is designed to promote harmony. I think that it is a stove that contains that fire in us and makes it safe and useful.

Herbie Hancock
Fifth Harmony is its own entity.
Normani Kordei
There’s design, and there’s art. Good design is total harmony. There’s no better designer than nature – if you look at a branch or a leaf, it’s perfect. It’s all function. Art is different. It’s about emotion. It’s about suffering and beauty – but mostly suffering!
Diane von Furstenberg
In this age, I don’t care how tactically or operationally brilliant you are: if you cannot create harmony – even vicious harmony – on the battlefield based on trust across service lines, across coalition and national lines, and across civilian/military lines, you need to go home, because your leadership is obsolete.
Jim Mattis
Even the smallest daily chore can be humanized with the harmony of culture.

People with malicious intentions will never succeed in disrupting the peace and harmony of India.

Ryuichi Sakamoto
Music is harmony, harmony is perfection, perfection is our dream, and our dream is heaven.

George Shearing
The nice thing about a protest song is that it takes the complaint, the fussing, the finger-pointing, and gives it an added component of sociable harmony.
Nicholson Baker
Where there is righteousness in the heart, there is harmony in the house; when there is harmony in the house, there is order in the nation; when there is order in the nation, there is peace in the world.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
The way I see it, my blood, sweat, and tears are not just for me; it’s for Fifth Harmony as well. We have been blessed. Most groups have lead singers, but we don’t.
Normani Kordei
This world belongs to all of us, and all sexes should be able to live in respect and harmony.
Michelle Yeoh
This synchronous action then will be the Subject, which is the representative harmony.
Robert Delaunay
God is One, all our lives have various and unique places in the harmony of the divine life.
Josiah Royce
Everything I’ve designed is intended not to match perfectly but to sit together in harmony, to add flair and personality to any room.
Matthew Williamson
Once you’ve developed some technical facility on the guitar, the musical side (which entails theory, harmony, chord structure, ear training, sight-reading, composition and being able to hear chord progressions and licks) comes into play a lot more.
John Petrucci
There is tolerance within our community, Muslims and Christians living together in harmony. These traditional values we have should be enhanced.
Hailemariam Desalegn
A painting is a symbol for the universe. Inside it, each piece relates to the other. Each piece is only answerable to the rest of that little world. So, probably in the total universe, there is that kind of total harmony, but we get only little tastes of it.
Corita Kent
Israeli interests are not necessarily in harmony with the American interests.
Bashar al-Assad
It’s very good for one’s brain and muscular system to work in harmony. If you keep up your playing it just keeps things ticking over.
Julian Bream
There are powerful emotions that bring two people together in wonderful harmony in a marriage. Satan knows this, and would tempt you to try these emotions outside of marriage. Do not stir emotions meant to be used only in marriage.
Richard G. Scott
We people, maybe because we have the greatest wisdom, we are also mad. We destroy the harmony of the world.
Mikis Theodorakis
Health and well-being, as well as how we can live in harmony with our planet, is something I’m passionate about.
Nargis Fakhri
The universe is not required to be in perfect harmony with human ambition.
Carl Sagan
I even have a Harmony Rocket and a Stratocaster with a scalloped neck back in Florida.
Daisy Berkowitz
Grace has been defined as the outward expression of the inward harmony of the soul.
William Hazlitt
I’m much more attracted to the miscegenation of cultures than to harmony.
Neel Mukherjee
The more suits I owned, the more I realized the best besuited look a man can achieve comes from a harmony of three details: fabric, construction, and fit. If the suit fits you like a glove and it’s well made, you simply feel better about everything in life when you’re wearing it.
Paul Feig
I think the Polynesian people and the gospel are in harmony. We’re very respectful people, and very humble people… and I try and let that shine through as much as possible.
Tony Finau
We have an obligation to live in harmony with creation, with our capital… with God’s creation. And we need to administer and work that very carefully.
Bruce Babbitt
I think it was definitely a love for the four- or five-part vocal male harmony groups that really took me away. I’d always try and be, like, the fifth Drifter; I’d always try and find another harmony that wasn’t there.
Paolo Nutini
Because a human being is endowed with empathy, he violates the natural order if he does not reach out to those who need care. Responding to this empathy, one is in harmony with the order of things, with dharma; otherwise, one is not.
Dayananda Saraswati
We are searching for some kind of harmony between two intangibles: a form which we have not yet designed and a context which we cannot properly describe.
Christopher Alexander
How is it they live in such harmony the billions of stars – when most men can barely go a minute without declaring war in their minds about someone they know.
Thomas Aquinas
Harmony is one phase of the law whose spiritual expression is love.
James Allen
Just as the earth is a planet in its own right, so each of us is an individual in our own sphere of habitation. We are individuals, but we live in families and communities where order provides a system of harmony that hinges on obedience to principles.
James E. Faust
We’re fans of stuff like Maiden, but I think we generally get it from weirder places. For me, the Eagles’ ‘Hotel California’ represents one of the most brilliant harmony approaches to music. Boston did it very well, too.
Synyster Gates
It is not easy to age in harmony with one’s roles.
Emmanuelle Beart
I really love singing. I love singing harmony, mostly.
Nancy Wilson
Happy is said to be the family which can eat onions together. They are, for the time being, separate, from the world, and have a harmony of aspiration.
Charles Dudley Warner
There’s design, and there’s art. Good design is total harmony. There’s no better designer than nature – if you look at a branch or a leaf, it’s perfect. It’s all function. Art is different. It’s about emotion. It’s about suffering and beauty – but mostly suffering!
Diane von Furstenberg
Stravinsky is masterly: his harmony is conceived so precisely that it can only be the way it is.
Esa-Pekka Salonen
Conservation is a state of harmony between men and land.
Aldo Leopold
Don and I are infamous for our split, but we’re closer than most brothers. Harmony singing requires that you enlarge yourself, not use any kind of suppression. Harmony is the ultimate love.
Phil Everly
We all allow each other to explore our individual things that make us happy, and so we’re just being supportive of each other and making sure we focus on Fifth Harmony, and what’s important to the group is important to all five of us.
Lauren Jauregui
I think that beauty can injure you to death. It can cause an injury that can never be cured. Or it can so traumatise you, your life changes direction. The beauty of the harmony of nature that is forever lost, or a daily rite that you perform, or diving into the sea for a swim. Those experiences are going to mark you.
Toni Servillo
If we aim to act in harmony with the laws of Good, we rise above all other laws and become a law unto ourselves; co-workers with God and helpers in nature. Ours is the privilege, ours the loss, if we fail to live up to our highest possibilities.
Max Heindel
Dixie Chicks surprised me with a beautiful three-part harmony version of ‘I’ll Take Care of You.’ And Don Henley’s performance of ‘The Heart of the Matter’ still just slays me every time I hear it.
J. D. Souther
With an eye made quiet by the power of harmony, and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things.
William Wordsworth
Truth is not a matter of fact but a state of harmony with progress and hope. Enveloped only in its wings will we ever soar to the promise of our greater selves.
Bryant H. McGill
Filtering can be a very good thing when it comes to human relationships and familial harmony. Yeah, filtering is often an absolute necessity.
Lynn Coady
I am fascinated by what is beautiful, strong, healthy, what is living. I seek harmony.
Leni Riefenstahl
Republicans turned against organized workers and abandoned the idea of promoting equality at the bottom of the economic scale. They turned their idea of economic harmony into a justification for supporting industrialists, who were the nation’s job creators.
Heather Cox Richardson
To Confucius, harmony was consensus, not conformity. It required loyal opposition.
Evan Osnos
Because we’re not in harmony with the environment, we’re destroying the environment that supports us.
Bruce Lipton
In my view, Reform and Opening Up began with the abandonment of the ‘using class struggle as guiding principle’ government policy of the Mao era and, in its place, a commitment to economic development and social harmony.
Liu Xiaobo
Once you free your mind about a concept of music and harmony being correct, you can do whatever you want.
Giorgio Moroder
The desire for freedom and equilibrium (harmony) is inherent in man (due to the universal in him).
Piet Mondrian
People would call me up because they liked my voice, and they wanted some kind of vocal harmony. Sometimes I was asked to come in and sing all the harmony parts, and sometimes I would sing with other people.
Timothy B. Schmit
Jazz is really 20th-century fusion music. You take West African harmony and rhythm, mix with European harmony, and boom!
Christian Scott
It may sound like showing off, but I am good in communications and in creating harmony.
Park Won-soon
The sound of the Seekers, that four-part harmony sound, three boys and a girl, is so unlikely, you would not choose those four voices to blend together.
Judith Durham
Copy, art, and typography should be seen as a living entity; each element integrally related, in harmony with the whole, and essential to the execution of an idea.
Paul Rand
I learned to play by ear before I learned music theory. For me, that makes sense. After all, children learn to speak before they read and write. The more you understand of music – how harmony and time signatures work, and what chords and inversions are – the more you’ll enjoy it.
Jools Holland
We get asked all the time if we’re getting a fifth member, and we wanted to show the world in an artistic way that, ‘Hey the four of us are Fifth Harmony,’ and we’re stronger and better than we’ve ever been.
Ally Brooke
I feel like it’s the most unnatural thing for two humans, especially of the opposite sex, to live in harmony under one roof. You realize how different men and women are.
Ashley Monroe
A Hamilton-Vettel combination, on paper, would look very attractive to any team. However, what you have to look at is the dynamics of any partnership like that and it’s difficult to see how two sportsmen at the absolute top of their game could work in harmony under one roof.
Christian Horner
Songs like ‘Peaceful World’ and songs that are responsible with their lyrics and talk about love and harmony can take the forefront and do something for real.
India Arie
I love music more just in and of itself. I love harmony and rhythm.
Edgar Winter
Let there be no illusions about the difficulty of forming this kind of a national community. It’s tough, difficult, not easy. But a spirit of harmony will survive in America only if each of us remembers that we share a common destiny.
Barbara Jordan
Beauty is being in harmony with what you are.
Peter Nivio Zarlenga
For me, the country where I feel good, where I feel in harmony with the lifestyle and fundamental values, is the United States – more than any other country.
Alain Juppe
We are not going to toy with our religion or any other. Nor are we going to barter. We are here to extend our hands to build peace and harmony.
Feisal Abdul Rauf
I love James Taylor and Carole King, Joni Mitchell – this is, like, early ’70s stuff. I love the stuff from the ’40s. I love that tight harmony that the studio singers in the ’50s would sing. I love Patsy Cline. Yeah, I’m all over the place.
Jane Lynch
There is a social need within our lives as human beings to have harmony.
Cat Stevens
There’s no harmony in most people in a way, and I’m attracted to it, and I think it makes for good storytelling.
Greg Kinnear
As I stand here today and tell you about these, I am heavy with an awareness of the fact that I am in more than one sense a product of both the Chinese and Western cultures, in harmony and in conflict.
Chen-Ning Yang
I’m a cuddler; I like harmony.
Lothar Matthaus
Virtue is harmony.
Our constitution is a ray of hope: H for harmony, O for Opportunity, P for people’s participation and E for equality.
Narendra Modi
And if you’re singing to someone, or if they’re singing along, and suddenly you’re in harmony, then it’s actually making a huge difference on a subatomic level that is actually transforming the world.
Jason Mraz
The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence.
Rabindranath Tagore
If you lose your concentration singing harmony, then it’s lackluster and no fun to watch.
Phil Everly
If in a country, most of the wealth is concentrated in the hands of the few, then this country can hardly witness harmony and stability.
Wen Jiabao
We’re falling into a place where melody is somewhat lacking in music. Everybody feels like, okay, too much melody or too much harmony, and it kind of goes over people’s heads; they don’t understand it.
Only by learning to live in harmony with your contradictions can you keep it all afloat.
Audre Lorde
My main concern is meeting with public because my main commitment, main interest is promotion of human value, human affection, compassion and religious harmony.
Dalai Lama
Wherever I go meeting the public… spreading a message of human values, spreading a message of harmony, is the most important thing.
Dalai Lama
Well, Mozart is extraordinary not only in that he became virtuoso along the lines of his father, but that he had that compositional gift, that melodic gift. By the time he was four, he was doing piano concertos with harmony in the background.
Twyla Tharp
We pray that henceforth not only Japan but all mankind may know the blessings of harmony and progress.
Shigeru Yoshida
I was fifteen years old, and I hardly knew how to play a simple Bach prelude on the piano when I began to compose music, and at the most advanced level. I had never studied such things as harmony.
Gyorgy Ligeti
There are many pointers in the Bible concerning the rightness, the goodness, the beauty, the justice, the preciousness of racial harmony and diversity.
John Piper
I wanted to create a line for women and men alike that would encourage them to embrace the harmony and divine balance of sensuality and spirituality within all of us. Forplai is an opportunity to not only smell good and feel good, but to also take time to connect with the heavens above and the god in you.
Lamman Rucker
Singing harmony is not the same as singing a part in a choral group, where you know you’re going to have to hit this note and then that note. There are nuances that change every day. Maybe today you have a slight cold or voice fatigue, or you’ve done something and there’s a slight difference in your breathing.
Phil Everly
Harmony Korine, the screenwriter, was really into my early work. I did a lot of stuff under the name Sentridoh and a lot of 4-track cassette stuff that he was into.
Lou Barlow
