The Beauty of Music

Hey. This week I just wanted to share why I think music is so special. Music is not just words sung together in verses; it is so much more. To me, music is the culmination of beauty, poetry, and instrumental genius. Personally, I cannot go a day without listening to music. Honestly, I listen to music sixteen out of the seventeen hours of a day I am up. Music is the epitome of magic. It is a way of communicating with the heart, and I believe that it has the power to change the world, because it changes people. I mean, we all have different perceptions of the world. What we see, what we hear, what we think, is all different depending on the person. But no matter what type of music you are into, I think it is the one thing that all people can relate to. Whatever genre you like, it is still something that makes you happy, and I think that is very special. The beauty of music is within its nature. Words have so much power over us, and music has the emotional power to make us feel secure and not alone. The beauty of music lies in the idea that it is a reflection of us all. It is not a combination of words to tell us what to do or how it feel, but it expresses what we feel. Here are a couple of my favorite quotes on the beauty of music:

"I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music."

Billy Joel

"It is cruel, you know, that music should be so beautiful. It has the beauty of loneliness of pain: of strength and freedom. The beauty of disappointment and never-satisfied love. The cruel beauty of nature and everlasting beauty of monotony."

Benjamin Britten

“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.”  ― Unknown Image Source
