Importance of Music In our Lives
If I had my life to live over again, I would have made a rule to read some poetry and listen to some music at least once a week; for perhaps the parts of my brain now atrophied would have thus been kept active through use. The loss of these tastes is a loss of happiness, and may possibly be injurious to the intellect, and more probably to the moral character, by enfeebling the emotional art of our nature.
I came across this quote in tools to life program. I agree with it absolutely. There was a time when I was care free and would listen to a lot of music and that would make me happy. I have the habit of singing when I am working my house hold chores.
Lately, though, I have been so pre-occupied with my online businesses and trying to be creative with my blog writing, that I don’t make the time to relax and listen to some nice music. O, I watch some television to take a break but the stories in those dramas are so melodramatic and far from reality full of cunning schemes being played by one character or another!
I think the best approach is to learn to play an instrument or sing for yourself. Both my husband and my daughter do that no matter how busy they are. I have to make time to do that also and I am trying to listen to some music to find some relief from my stress.
Here are some additional beautiful quotations on music
Music is God’s gift to man, the only art of heaven given to earth, the only art of earth we take to heaven.
-Walter Savage Landor
Music is well said to be the speech of angels; in fact, nothing among the utterances allowed to man is felt to be so divine. It brings us near to the Infinite.
