Music 2

It is only by introducing the young to great literature,
drama and music,
and to the excitement of great science
that we open to them the possibilities
that lie within the human spirit —
enable them to see visions and dream dreams.
Eric Anderson

When griping grief the heart doth wound,
and doleful dumps the mind opresses,
then music, with her silver sound,
with speedy help doth lend redress.
William Shakespeare

Alas for those that never sing,
But die with all their music in them!
Oliver Wendell Holmes

I think I should have no other mortal wants,
if I could always have plenty of music.
It seems to infuse strength into my limbs
and ideas into my brain.
Life seems to go on without effort,
when I am filled with music.
George Eliot

Music is the harmonious voice of creation;
an echo of the invisible world.
Giuseppe Mazzini

When people hear good music,
it makes them homesick
for something they never had and never will have.
Edgar Watson Howe

Bach opens a vista to the universe.
After experiencing him,
people feel there is meaning to life after all.
Helmut Walcha
