I’m new to Pinterest.
It usually takes me awhile to figure out new social media sites, but Pinterest intrigues me. I love to learn about people, places and ideas. I could wade through web pages for hours looking for an elusive bit of information or possibly just exploring, looking for a serendipitous discovery.
And Pinterest is the perfect “bulletin board” for organizing and sharing some of those discoveries.
Today I would like to share just a few of the quotes I have collected about things related to music, music practice and performance and the harp.
I have “pinned” them on my pinboard. Please feel free to share and re-pin. I expect to keep updating the collection as it grows, so don’t forget to check back!
In case you can’t visit the board right away, here are some of the quotes I have pinned so far:
A note of music gains significance from the silence on either side. – Anne Morrow Lindberg
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act but a habit. – Aristotle
Practice means to perform over and over again in the face of all obstacles, some act of vision, of faith, of desire. Practice is a means of inviting the perfection desired. – Martha Graham, American dancer, teacher, choreographer (1894-1991)
Nature is an Æolian Harp, a musical instrument; whose tones again are keys to higher strings in us. – Sourced, Novalis (1829)
“My pen is my harp and my lyre; my library is my garden and my orchard.” – Judah Ha-Levi, Spanish Poet, Physician
“Everybody has the will to win. What’s far more important is having the will to prepare to win.” – Booby Knight, legendary basketball coach
“”May the music from an Angel’s harp, lift your spirit and touch your soul.” – Tom Baker, a.k.a. The Pondering Man
