Pictures on Silence

On Sunday, we had Ward Conference. I loved listening to our Bishop and Stake President. The best part of the meeting for me though was when we ended the service singing "I Know that My Redeemer Lives".

"Without music, life would be a mistake." Friedrich Nietzsche

"Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent." Victor Hugo

“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.” Plato

"A painter paints his pictures on canvas. But musicians paint their pictures on silence." Leopold Stokowski

"Music can name the unnameable and communicate the unknowable." Leonard Bernstein

"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." Thomas Carlyle
