I guess this sort of goes along with the one last night... The music of the night. : )

Music is something that has made me laugh when I'm depressed, and that has made me cry when it's all been ok. Music intensifies situations, and makes the awful moments even worse. It lightens situations, and makes the best moments ten times better. 

I can't really do music justice by my words. So I'll give you some quotes I found about music.

Music is what feelings sound like.” ~Author unknown

Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul.” ~Author unknown

“Music is enough for a lifetime, but a lifetime is not enough for music.” ~Sergei Rachmaninov

“Music and rhythm find their way into the secret places of the soul.” ~Plato

Music is God's gift to man, the only art of Heaven given to earth, the only art of earth we take to Heaven.
(I haven't thought about this long enough to decide if I think it is completely true, but I thought it was very interesting nonetheless) ~Walter Savage Landor

The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul.” (I don't have to think about this long at all to decide whether I think it's true) ~Johann Sebastian Bach 

Music is the art which is most night to tears and memory.” ~Oscar Wilde

Where words fail, music speaks.” ~Hans Christian Anderson

"The music is all around us. All you have to do is listen." ~August Rush : )

"Life is one grand, sweet song, so start the music."  ~Ronald Reagan

"Music is the medicine of the breaking heart."  ~Leigh Hunt

"Ah, music. A magic beyond all we do here!" ~J.K. Rowling 

"Music isn't just learning notes and playing them. You learn notes to play to the music of your soul." ~Katie Greenwood

"Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything." ~Plato

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

"Its language is a language which the soul alone understands, but which the soul can never translate." ~Arnold Bennett

God's gift of music is an incredible one. The delights we feel but cannot explain when we hear music is one of the strangest, most glorious parts of life. But the sweetest song is the one he is singing with us. That harmony is the finest of all. 


  1. Wow, this is incredibly annoying. I cannot get some of the quotes to show up. As soon as I can get some help, hopefully they will show up. : ) Meanwhile, enjoy the other ones, and imagine what the invisible ones say. : )

  2. Aha. I just realized the problem is that they're black. hehe, silly me. : )

  3. There, that's better. : ) And probably no one even saw it before I fixed it. haha, wow this is random.
