Thoughts on Thursday: Music

It is cruel, you know, that music should be so beautiful. It has the beauty of loneliness & of pain: of strength & freedom. The beauty of disappointment & never-satisfied love. The cruel beauty of nature, & everlasting beauty of monotony ~ Benjamin Britten

After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music. ~ Aldous Huxley

Music takes us out of the actual and whispers to us dim secrets that startle our wonder as to who we are, and for what, whence, and whereto. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Where words fail, music speaks. ~ Hans Andersen

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

To stop the flow of music would be like the stopping of time itself, incredible and inconceivable. ~ Aaron Copland

Music is the Voice that tells us that the human race is greater than it knows" ~ Napoleon Bonaparte

If music be the food of love; play on. ~ William Shakespeare

Music is what feelings sound like. ~ Unknown

As I play the game of life, I try to make it better each and every day. And when I struggle in the night, the magic of the music seems to light the way. ~ John Lennon, Intuition
