"Music cleanses the understanding; inspires it, and lifts it into a realm which it would not reach if it were left to itself". Henry Ward Beecher

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

"Music expresses feeling and thought, without language; it was below and before speech, and it is above and beyond all words." Robert G. Ingersoll

Thought for Today
"Take a music bath once or twice a week for a few seasons. You will find it is to the soul what a water bath is to the body."

You CAN NOT go wrong with The Beatles. Love the way incorporated videos into this post.

Music truly is a retreat and a place for comfort. There are definitely songs that calm me, remind me of another time, and excite me.

Fantastic quote on your peace globe. Which of course means I agree wholeheartedly!

Happy Blogblast For Peace Day!

Momisodes said...

All such great songs. Bette Midlers song always reminds me of the movie Beaches, and brings me to tears.

Raven said...

Lovely post. My computer has been boycotting video today but I heard them in my head anyway. Peace.

Dianne said...

such beautiful quotes and all the music!!

especially the Divine Miss M!

Mimi Lenox said...

My Lord and My God what a beautiful BlogBlast post. I haven't seen one like it. I listened (and cried) to Midler's "From A Distance" ..bathed in a blue light...just like all of us today.

I am now listening to the McCartney sing "Let It Be". All our perfect songs for this day. Thank you for being a voice and caring and preparing for this day with conviction. Your gift to us today was music.
We are blessed.

Peace to you and yours,

Julie said...

I've always felt that people who don't like music are oh so very wrong! I find my peace in my music. Thanks for giving me some music today that I normally wouldn't have listened to.

May the spirit of peace take over!

Jo Beaufoix said...

Well that was gorgeous storyteller. It' past midnight here and I'm off to bed and those are lovely songs to have rolling round my head. :)
