The 01/08/13 Joy Jar

7 Jan

The are sides and parts of each person’s personalty. Each person has a soul and a spirit. Music can affect not only the personalty by bringing out different emotions like calm, relaxation or excitement. Music can touch a soul or collectively, souls. Today’s deposit in the ‘Joy Jar’ is music.

Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent”

Victor Hugo

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people to whom it is easy to do good, and who are not accustomed to have it done to them; then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, love for one’s neighbor — such is my idea of happiness.”
Leo Tolstoy,
Family Happiness

The devil, the originator of sorrowful anxieties and restless troubles, flees before the sound of music almost as much as before the Word of God….Music is a gift and grace of God, not an invention of men. Thus it drives out the devil and makes people cheerful. Then one forgets all wrath, impurity, and other devices.”
Martin Luther

Music is an agreeable harmony for the honor of God and the permissible delights of the soul.”
Johann Sebastian Bach

I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning”
Plato

Words make you think. Music makes you feel. A song makes you feel a thought.”
Yip Harburg
