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.”
