The Power of Music

“Whatever means be chosen to bring the different minds of people together, there cannot be a better means of harmonizing them than music. It would be no exaggeration if I said that music alone can be the means by which the souls of races, nations and families, which are today so apart, may one day be united.”

“All the tragedy in the world, in the individual and in the multitude, come from lack of harmony, and harmony is best given by producing it in ones’ own life.”

At age 70+ I laid down my novel writing pen and took up an old violin. #betterlatethannever #latebloomer

One thought on “The Power of Music”

  1. A wise quote and a wonderful image to go with it. Although I’m not a late bloomer within my art form, I certainly am when it comes to certain qualities and/or habits. Someday maybe I will learn to organize better, to use my time better, etc. 😉
