“MUSIC OF THE UNIVERSE

Without the orchestra of the universe,
There would be no ether.
And without its instrumentation
By the ether,
There would be no waves.
And without any waves,
There would be no sound.
And without sound,
There would be no music.
And without music,
There would be no life.
And without a life force,
There would be no matter.
But it does not matter -
Because what is matter,
If there is no light?”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“We are all beautiful instruments of God. He created many notes in music so that we would not be stuck playing the same song. Be music always. Keep changing the keys, tones, pitch, and volume of each of the songs you create along your journey and play on. Nobody will ever reach ultimate perfection in this lifetime, but trying to achieve it is a full-time job. Start now and don't stop. Make your book of life a musical. Never abandon obligations, but have fun leaving behind a colorful legacy. Never allow anybody to be the composer of your own destiny. Take control of your life, and never allow limitations implanted by society, tell you how your music is supposed to sound — or how your book is supposed to be written.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Kamand Kojouri
“Violinists wear the imprint on their necks with pride
For they are the players of harmony.

For they are the conductors of unity.

And Lovers? Why, they are made humble by the imprint on their hearts
For they are merely the instruments of rhapsody.”
Kamand Kojouri

Cassandra Clare

“As good surgical doctor works on a patient in the theater with varied kinds of surgical instruments, so a true leader also needs a clean bag of leadership characters that vary from task to task. One-way leaders are obvious failures!”
Israelmore Ayivor

“Scattered among these things are reminders that sound once existed: a metronome, a drumming pad, a guitar pick, a trumpet mouthpiece, a music stand, a tuning fork, a block of rosin...The older instruments bear the marks of those who have already played them, the scuffs and bites and dents that are the mysterious scars of sound. In their midst the house hangs, tenuous and enveloping, a sounding board waiting to be struck.”
Geoffrey O'Brien, Sonata for Jukebox: An Autobiography of My Ears

Joseph Legaspi
“Music is formed by instruments, framed with notes, paced by our hands playing with Time, but above all, it is made up of emotions. It transports you back to moments when you felt most alive. If it doesn’t release your locked feelings, music is just air.”
Joseph Legaspi, A Three-Year Minute

“We are too prone to make technological instruments the scapegoats for the crimes of those who wield them. The products of modern science are not in themselves good or bad; it is the way they are used that determines their value.”
David Sarnoff

Charles Haddon Spurgeon
“We do not need them. They would hinder rather than help our praise. Sing unto him. This is the sweetest and best music. No instrument like the human voice. What a degradation to supplant the intelligent song of the whole congregation by the theatrical prettiness of a quartet, bellows, and pipes! We might as well pray by machinery as praise by it.”
Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Clement of Alexandria
“« Instruisez-vous, ajoute l'apôtre, et exhortez-vous les uns les autres par des psaumes, des hymnes et des cantiques spirituels, chantant de cœur, avec édification, les louanges de Dieu. Quelque chose que vous fassiez, soit en parlant ou en agissant, faites tout au nom du Seigneur Jésus-Christ, rendant grâces par lui à Dieu le père. »

Tels doivent être nos festins, pleins de grâces et d'une joie sainte. Si vous savez jouer du luth ou de la harpe, vous le pourrez faire sans mériter de reproche; car vous imiterez ainsi ce saint roi des Hébreux, si agréable et si cher à Dieu.”
Clement of Alexandria, Le Pédagogue, Tome 1
