“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
“Music is the shorthand of emotion.” – Leo Tolstoy
“Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.” – Maya Angelou
“Music can change the world because it can change people.” – Bono
I think music is our universal language, our most effective medicine, and our closest friend. It’s a constant, and for me a welcome companion when times are rough. This morning was one of those moments – I just needed to tune out the “noise” and focus on my priorities.
J Dilla is one of my favorite producers, and truly a man who lived his music. It’s hard to believe he passed away 11 years ago. I’m still a huge fan.
