“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

“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.” – Henry David Thoreau  (My mom used to tell me this one when I was very young)

“It is cruel, you know, that music should be so beautiful. It has the beauty of loneliness of pain: of strength and freedom. The beauty of disappointment and never-satisfied love. The cruel beauty of nature and everlasting beauty of monotony.” – Benjamin Bitten

“Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.” – Victor Hugo

“Music doesn’t lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.” -Jimi Hendrix
