Monday's special

Posted by Claudia Moser on 2:57 PM
Another day, another quote, this one dedicated to MUSIC since this is the main element for the May challenge. Some of my favourites:

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

Were it not for music, we might in these days say, the Beautiful is dead.
Benjamin Disraeli

There is nothing in the world so much like prayer as music is.
William P. Merrill

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

And the most significant for me:

You are the music while the music lasts.
T.S. Eliot



You have shared some great quotes!

Truly lovely quotes, Claudia. My favourite has to be "Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life." How lovely is that?!

@Desiree - welcome, it rather fun to do some research!
@Karen - for sure! I will be your follower in the future as well :)
@This - indeed, how lovely is that?

The old song that says "Music is the universal language and love is the key". So true.

@Barb - music is amazing isnt't it?
@Elizabeth - thank you :) And well done as well!

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
