For me, art, and especially music, exist to elevate us as far as possible above everyday existence.
Gabriel Fauré (via itsquoted)
Time is incalculably long, and every day is a vessel into which very much may be poured, if one will really fill it up.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (via itsquoted)
The great man is the one who does not lose his child’s heart.
Mencius (via itsquoted)
The people in your life are like the pillars on your porch.
Sometimes they hold you up, and sometimes they lean on you.
Sometimes it’s enough to know they are standing by.
Merle Shain (via fuckyeahexistentialism)
Art is the one form of human energy in the whole world, which really works for union, and destroys the barriers between man and man. It is the continual, unconscious replacement, however fleeting, of oneself by another; the real cement of human life; the everlasting refreshment and renewal.
John Galsworthy (via itsquoted)
Don’t be seduced into thinking that that which does not make a profit is without value.
Arthur Miller (via itsquoted)
Music takes us out of the actual and whispers to us dim secrets that startle our wonder as to who we are, and for what, whence, and whereto.
Ralph Waldo Emerson (via itsquoted)
