German Novelist, Poet
1812 - 1882
Of the arts, music holds the greatest sway over the soul. It has the power to soothe the pain and free the spirit. For many of us, certain songs bring to mind special moments and times. What music do you listen to during times of trouble? Do you sing in the shower or while walking alone along the railroad tracks? What music inspires your creativity? Do you paint to the sounds of rock and roll or write to the concertos of Bach? What music moves you to dance with joy and to celebrate life?
