The Value of Time

 I took a roundabout way after work today, which brought me by these old friends. You're right, they're statues playing their instruments in theory right in the middle of the city.

"Minutes are worth more than money. Spend them wisely."

Thomas P.Murphy


I'm posting to City Daily Photo

"The soul is like a violin string: it makes music only when it is stretched."

Neal A. Maxwell

"You are a valuable instrument in the orchestration of your own world, and the overall harmony of the universe."

Suzy Kassem

Sing it from the rooftops! 

"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of fuel.
Sentimental people call it inspiration, but what they really mean is fuel."
Hunter S. Thompson

"Music touches us emotionally, where words alone can't."
Johnny Depp, Robert Rushton-Taylor

Music moves you to feel. It causes you to remember. It moves you to places you've always desired to be.
 It takes you where you belong.

"Music is the language of spirit, It opens the secret of life
bringing peace, abolishing strife."
Kahlil Gibran

I believe music is much like this quote about trees from Kahlil Gibran

Trees are poems the earth writes upon the sky.
Just as music are words of poetry floating upon the clouds.
 We fell them down and turned them into paper.
That we may record our emptiness.

Stay safe, and take good care of you.
