Book of Quotations

Well i simply have to share this today:
I actually picked up this book of quotations by Helen Keller, of all places at the children's section of our local library! I'd always loved her quote about the most beautiful thing in life - see sidebar at the right, but here i've found so much more!

Here's one of them:
"I can tell music from other vibrations by its rhythm and - I have no touch-word for its velvety singing through me. I detect loud and soft tones, swelling chords and dance measures. Each musical instrument has its own quality of vibration. A violin sings or sobs into my hand like the human voice. The music of the organ rolls, thunders, sinks as if into the sea, mounts upward and sweeps out into space carrying my soul on its majestic wings. The wild call of the bugle is unlike the insistent beat of the drum or the sweetness of the harp."Helen Keller

Beautiful, isn't it? How precious & richly she describes music though she cannot hear it ! From now on i will hear each pure note & feel it in me.

There's so much more, i'm going to put her sayings into my next few (or many) layouts!

  3. Your papers are very pretty! I didn't download them as file front has to be one of the worst file sharing sites to use. It is such a chase & a maze to download them. But I wanted to let you know that they are very nice.
