Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.

Well put! It's hard to put into words what music "whispers" to us.

The quote reminds one of Adrian Leverkuhn, Thomas Mann's Dr. Faustus, who wanted to liberate music from tonality and the strictures of language.

In response to today's quote, I think music has a special quality that transcends words, and addresses the 'heart' that lies within us all.
