Very nice quotes. I had never heard any of them before. And that is odd as they are so natural it would seem like somebody would remember "Without music life would be a mistake." Nietzsche.

Loved it.

Those quotes are brilliant.

I'd only heard the Shakespeare one. I love the Dick Clark one, it's so true. When you hear certain pieces of music it takes you back to the time in your life when you heard it.

The Plato one is very perceptive and Oscar Wilde's so funny.

Music has always been a big part of my life. From Mom singing in the choir, my brother's extensive album collection to my Dad and I playing guitar together.
This post brings about a whole slew of good memories.
Thanks, Patty!

Especially coming from Nietzsche! I just watched a series of videos about the string theory and it was said that the voice of God could be heard in music- because music is heard in space. Awesome!!
How are you Miss Patty? I miss you!!

Just reading Dick Clarks quote "Music is the soundtrack of your life." Brings back many songs of my teen-age years. Especially, watching his Dance show each afternoon and listening to the latest hits of the day. Those were the days...
