As you may know, I love to collect inspirational quotes!  You’ll find them in my Twitter stream.  You’ll hear them in my songs.  You’ll even find them taped to my mirror at my home.

Much like we read to know we are not alone (C.S. Lewis), listening to music can be just the thing your soul needs.  Music can provide a connection to fond memories, and may speak to a deep part of our humanity.  No wonder so many people have made profound, uplifting quotes about music and life.

I’d love to share a few more of my favorites!

    According to me music is an art, which have rhythm, melody, or harmony. Also it is learning, a therapy, and teaching tool as well. Music adjusts our moods, and used throughout our lives. To lead a healthy life, we need to incorporate music by playing it, listening to it, or using it. If you like it or not music is a huge part of our lives. The good outweighs the bad. Music leads to a healthy life. One would need to incorporate music; whether playing it, listening to it, or using it.
