Not-Bubba Quotes That Aren't Funny
Didn't see anything for this, so....

I'm running into a lot of good quotes as I go over my books of them (oh yes, I have several - geek, remember?). Some are too good not to share. Here's a few about music, something we all love....

Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness. ~ Maya Angelou

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

Truly fertile Music, the only kind that will move us, that we shall truly appreciate, will be a Music conducive to Dream, which banishes all reason and analysis. One must not wish first to understand and then to feel. Art does not tolerate Reason. ~ Albert Camus

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

In memory everything seems to happen to music. ~ Tennessee Williams


My favorite website for quotes is Brainy Quote. I could spend hours browsing there Cool

... in a world where I feel so small I can't stop thinking big!

Came across this recently and thought it appropriate for the season of life I am in right now:

"For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn't understand growth, it would look like complete destruction." -Cynthia Occelli

Johann Sebastian Bach

Obviously never having touched his lips to the mouthpiece of a trumpet. Plays itself. Right. Just have to 'touch the right key'! Same goes for the Didgeridoo and a myriad of other 'any musical instruments'.

I do like the simplicity in his sentiment, though. The music is within any instrument, one merely has to interact with it to gain anything meaningful.

"No one else will ever know the strength of my love for you. After all, you're the only one who knows what my heart sounds like from the inside." - Unknown —

A quote that just seemed to resonate with me this week. I've shared it with my 2 daughters.

"... always throw spilt salt over your left shoulder, keep rosemary by your garden gate, plant lavender for luck, and fall in love whenever you can..." Practical Magic
