Quote Left The longer I live, the more I think this world is very important-- not because it is the only world, but because it is NOT the only world we will exist in. As I know the human soul is real, so I know there must be other worlds it might 'inhabit'. Therefore I suspect this life of flesh and blood is a proving ground, a learning place, and all the good or bad we do, who and what we love or hate, and the myriad things we learn or fail to learn point us towards which 'new world' our souls will enter.

Quote Left When I hear Bach, I see God the Great Mathematician. When I listen to Mozart, I can feel the loving God, the God of joy. And when I play Beethoven, I sense the presence of God the Almighty, the Ruler of all His vast creation. Quote Right

Quote Left When I was young, I thought I knew a lot. Now I am old, I know much, much less-- very little really, but what I know, I DO KNOW. Quote Right
