Y A N N I     Q U O T E S



If all our souls can come together in our music, then they can come together anywhere, and as a race, we can always achieve harmony and peace in our mind.

I know that our world is in turmoil, but I  truly believe we are on a one way street, and that for all of us to survive we have no choice  but for all of us to become a global community.

As I understand life at different levels, I can use music to express what these levels feel like to me.  Hopefully the listener can be transported to this understanding by listening to the music.

When I see how all our musical souls come together in art, I say to myself, "why can't we do the same?"

I really and truly believe that music represents humanity's soul.

If my music can change someone's mood for the better even a little bit, that's amazing.

It seems that in every culture, however tough life is and however impossible the conditions, these are some resilient human beings who find their way through, who survive and make something of themselves.

Focused will is incredible.  If you have a dream and you don't give up no matter what obstacles come up, then life's problems will fall away and you will get what you want.  It happens.  It works.

Of all the forces that are exerted on us over our lifetime, at least for me, love has been the most wonderful of all.

That everything great that has ever happened to humanity since the beginning, has begun with a single thought on someone's mind and if anyone of us is capable of such a great thought then all of us has the same capacity, capability, because we are all the same.

Sometimes we get caught up in our troubles and our problems and we let life slip away, but life is precious, all of life and one must try to take in as much of it as possible.

"I believe that having an open mind is one of the most important qualities we can posses.  Once our minds are closed, we stop evolving."

"There are as many ways to live life as there are people on this planet."

"I truly believe greatness is in all of us. Don't let anyone talk us out of the truth."


Yanni Live at the Acropolis (I would like to leave you witha couple of thoughts)

I little while back I was watching an interview with one of the astronauts from the Space Shuttle and in this interview he was discribing his experiences.  One of the things the astronaut said that how beautiful earth looks from above and he said to his surprise, when he was going over Europe, he found that he was having a hard time telling the countries appart from each other.  He said, the reason for that was, the lines that there are in the maps, are not in the ground.

"It makes a great point: these lines really don't exist.  They're made up completely and we perpetuate in the illusion that somewhere we're all different from each other and I think the world would be a much better place if someday we stop pretending that these lines exist and we concentrate in our similarities rather than in our differences."

"The most important battle is one to conquer yourself."

"Whether a person is spiritual or not we all seek to get away from stress, anger, and anxiety of everyday life.  Some people drink, do drugs, or do worse to escape, and they hurt themselves in the process.  Some people listen to music, mine included and feel better.."
