Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, gaiety and life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just, and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but nevertheless dazzling, passionate, and eternal form.

Plato

Women play with their beauty as children do with their knives. They wound themselves with it.

Victor Hugo

Alexandre Dumas

Two things may happen when we meet someone: either we become friends or we try to convince that person to accept our beliefs. The same thing happens when a hot coal meets another piece of coal: it either shares its fire with it or is overwhelmed by the other`s size and is extinguished.

Epictetus

- What makes the sky change colour when the sun reaches the horizon?
- If we tried to explain everything, we wouldn`t be able to live.

Paulo Coelho

It is far better to endure patiently a smart which nobody feels but yourself, than to commit a hasty action whose evil consequences will extend to all connected with you.

Charlotte Bronte
