music

A painter paints pictures on canvas. But musicians paint their pictures on silence. ~Leopold Stokowski

Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. ~Berthold Auerbach

Without music life would be a mistake. ~Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

Music is the poetry of the air. ~Richter

Music is the mediator between the spiritual and the sensual life. ~Ludwig van Beethoven

I have my own particular sorrows, loves, delights; and you have yours. But sorrow, gladness, yearning, hope, love, belong to all of us, in all times and in all places. Music is the only means whereby we feel these emotions in their universality. ~H.A. Overstreet

My idea is that there is music in the air, music all around us; the world is full of it, and you simply take as much as you require. ~Edward Elgar

Music is the wine that fills the cup of silence. ~Robert Fripp

Music is love in search of a word. ~Sidney Lanier


some pretty cool music quotes I found


Music has always been a big part of my life. I grew up listening not only to the top 40 music, but opera as well and learned to have an appreciation for all types of music. (except country, I must say.........the twangy-ness just kills it for me) Anyhoo. In these days of hip hop, some of which I actually enjoy listening too, others which I just want to become invisible when my car starts vibrating to the beat, I want the kids to grow up with the appreciation I learned to have. This being the choice of music for them these days......its a good place to start.
With this being said, Bill and I are getting ready to go to California to see George Michael. When we first met, we loved to listen to music together and some of it brings us back...........way back...Seal, Pink Floyd, George Michael...It will always remind us of how we came together as a couple and how special the music was for us back then.

And who can ever forget this.
Oh, yeah, baby...
And just to prove how important music is, when something like this happens, or even this.........society as a whole seems to forget of forgive or whatever and just enjoy the music.

Did I ask you already if you remember this?????

Now when is Seal going to tour?
