"Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends." - Alphonse de Lamartine

"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 every week." - Charles Darwin, The Autobiography of Charles Darwin, 1809-82

"Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet." - Plato
