Quotable Sunday ~ Music


Music has always been a huge part of my life.  I grew up studying violin and played and taught professionally before my kiddos came along.  I love all kinds of music, it is part of who I am.  I've become a BLIP.fm addict and spent the day listening to all kinds of different music.  I thought it would be appropriate to choose music quotes today....


Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.  ~Berthold Auerbach

Take a music bath once or twice a week for a few seasons.  You will find it is to the soul what a water bath is to the body.  ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Music was my refuge.  I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.  ~Maya Angelou, Gather Together in My Name

Music cleanses the understanding; inspires it, and lifts it into a realm which it would not reach if it were left to itself.  ~Henry Ward Beecher

    we have a channel on Direct TV that is acoustic music, coffee house style... that + a channel called Watercolors = sanity for me often.

    I love music, and both of my boys know that when mama turns on the classical station in the car - she needs a little breathing time!

    I love music!!! Puts you in the right mood. Start the kids out early listening to music, dancing around the house and having a good time.

    Yet another thing we have in common. I played flute & piano, and have recently become addicted to blip.fm, too!

    Terrific quotes.

    Never played an instrument, but I'm a music lover. Love your first quote.

    Thanks for the referrals too. Hope you enjoy your day.

    We are music lovers here too! I can't imagine getting through a day without some music in it.
    I try to do this one on a regular basis:
    Take a music bath once or twice a week for a few seasons. You will find it is to the soul what a water bath is to the body.

    I had no idea you were/are a violinist...my hubby's best friend studied the violin and plays beautifully - I get to appreciate it every Sunday when he comes over to work on new songs for their album...such a treat! :)

    Love the quotes - I especially like:

    "Music washes away from the sould the dust of everyday life." Berthold Auerbach

    So very true! :) Have a great Sunday! :)

    Great quotes.

    Have a great week.

    Great theme and beautiful quotes. My favouriote is: "Music cleanses the understanding; inspires it, and lifts it into a realm which it would not reach if it were left to itself." ~Henry Ward Beecher

    Those are great quotes. I love to put on the music as I carry out my domestic chores especially when I'm pressing the clothes.

    You're so right. I'll be in a total bitchy mood, having a bad day then some random song will come on - "Cheeseburger in Paradise," "Bohemian Rhapsody" or "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" and I become this happy, dancing fool. I love it! Recently I discovered that I haven't taken the time to listen to music as much as I like. I'm working on adding back in my treadmill routines with my Ipod of favorite tunes. There's almost nothing better - well, except for that piece of chocolate I eat after running, LOL! :-) I like your blog. I'm glad I stumbled upon you. ~Mandy

    One more thing, I often use a free internet music site, www.pandora.com - it's wonderful! Just type in an artist or song you feel like listening to and it creates a playlist for you. It really is pandora's great little box!

    Beautiful quotes! Music used to be a huge part of my life (trained in piano for 8 years in Canada's Royal Conservatory for Music) and I definitely need to get back to that place.

    I love my music. When no one's home I love turning on my favorites and just blasting it :)

    Music is powerful. I think it is a language that our soul understands.
