Week of Quotes Day 1 – Music

I am taking a break from advice responses this week to highlight a few quotes that I have come across that have touched or moved me at some point in my life. Today I have decided to focus on quotes that discuss music. When I was younger I wrote poetry, quite frequently in fact. As I’ve gotten older and busier (or so it seems) I really don’t have the time to play with words on paper as much as I would like. And I have always been a huge fan of music my entire life. People generally ask, “What type of music do you like?” I reply, “All of it, everything from rap to opera…yes seriously” If something strikes a chord (pun intended 🙂 ) with me then it just resonates within my soul and heart. Poetry put to music creates a song that creates a long lasting impression. In fact, when hearing an old song it instantaneously invokes a memory  that I might have long since forgotten. So here are a list of quotes that for myself personally explain what music means to me. If you have music related quotes (not lyrics…save those for a future posting:) ) then please add them in a comment below.

“I haven’t understood a bar of music in my life, but I have felt it.”- Igor Stravinsky

“Music is the voice that tells us that the human race is greater than it knows” – Napolean Bonaparte
