It helps to clear the mind of thought and get lost in the spirit and flow of music.
Living by the pure intuition of sound can be so beautiful. ---Nicholas Croft

Modern culture is constantly growing more objective. Its tissues grow more and more out of impersonal
energies, and absorb less and less the subjective entirety of the individual. ---Georg Simmel

Each of us has a very rich nature and can look at things objectively, from a distance, and at the same time
can have something more personal to say about them. I am trying to look at the world, and at myself,
from many different points of view. I think many poets have this duality. ---Wislawa Szymborska
Each of us has a very rich nature.... ---Wislawa Szymborska quote

I couldn't have foreseen all the good things that have followed my mother's death. The renewed energy, the
surprising sweetness of grief. The tenderness I feel for strangers on walkers. The deeper love I have
for my siblings and friends. The desire to play the mandolin. The gift of a visitation. ---Mary Schmich
