"hurt people hurt people. that’s how pain patterns gets passed on, generation after generation after generation. break the chain today. meet anger with sympathy, contempt with compassion, cruelty with kindness. greet grimaces with smiles. forgive and forget about finding fault. love is the weapon of the future."
“in a way, you are poetry material; you are full of cloudy subtleties i am willing to spend a lifetime figuring out. words burst in your essence and you carry their dust in the pores of your ethereal individuality.”
— franz kafka, letters to milena
“what is wonderful about music is that it helps man to concentrate or meditate independently of thought. therefore music seems to be the bridge over the gulf between the form and the formless. if there is anything intelligent, effective, and at the same time formless, it is music. poetry suggests form, line and color suggests form, but music suggests no form.”
“music also produces that resonance which vibrates through the whole being. it lifts the thought about the denseness of matter; it almost turns matter into spirit, into its original condition, through the harmony of vibrations touching every atom of one’s whole being…”
“music touches our innermost being, and in that way produces new life, a life that gives exaltation to the whole being, raising it to that perfection in which lies the fulfillment of man’s life.”
— hazrat inayat khan from the mysticism of sound and music
