I think I should have no other mortal wants, if I could always have plenty of music. It seems to infuse strength into my limbs and ideas into my brain. Life seems to go on without effort, when I am filled with music.

Middlemarch was for many years the best novel I had ever read. Then I read Dostoevsky's The Idiot and I now no longer know who sits on the throne.

Music is the simplest and yet most profound means of stimulating the human spirit! Without music, life would be senseless, boring, unfulfilling. With music, life takes on meaning, excitement, fulfillment, and a richness beyond all imagining! Music fuels the imagination!

Be the change you wish to see in the world!-Gandhi

Not only imagination.. You'll find a little dance and music will make your tears flow quite as fast as ours... Life is filled with music. What matters is how we dance to it.

Music begins to atrophy when it departs too far from the dance. ~Ezra

When thre is no food but only a music player on the table; I want to hear her saying the same thing again. People can say many beautiful things in good life, but when bad time comes - they just shut up and die.

Music is a powerful stimulant and under its spell you may say a little bit too much.

Music is a double edged sword: can calm you down or trigger up your spirit into distress. For people who suffer depression it's simply true that relax-music can alleviate their unrest.

This quote is superb: "I think I should have no other mortal wants, if I could always have plenty of music. It seems to infuse strength into my limbs and ideas into my brain. Life seems to go on without effort, when I am filled with music." In my art studio there is always music, from the classical to the crossover music of the 1950's, to great "Rock-n-roll", to almost every style which has and dose motivate my work; and always in a very positive manner. Also, there is designed into many of my works of art, a "rhythmic flow" that gently moves you, the viewer, across and through a piece. Ah, and then at my bed time, it usually is classical flutes or Gregorian chants that allows me to pass into that special "other-world" of dreams and creativity... And yes, when there is no music available, I hum or sing to myself (sang first chair baritone with the Navy's Blue Jacket Choir, some many, many years ago) Peace my friends & hum a tune just for me...

Yes, music is powerful.

I see many people, of all ages, walking down the street listening to music on their devices.

As for me, I hum to myself as I take my daily walks.

Music can be used for good or ill.

For ill: How music was used at Nazi rallies in the 1930's.

For good: How music is used at a graduation ceremony.

I've just read an amusing article about sounds that might qualify as "music."

As you know, for many years The Times newspaper was the newspaper in England.

Today, of course, its reporters use computers.

But the Guardian newspaper has just reported that in at least one room of reporters, the managers at The Times have decided to play the sound of typewriters. That "music" seems to increase the morale and production of some reporters.

I guess that it reminds the reporters of the "good old days" when newsrooms were full of typewriter "music."

Are the commas intentionally used wrong?
