We hear the kindred vibrations, music! and we put out our dormant feelers unto the limits of the universe We attain to a wisdom that passeth understanding The stable continents undulate. The hard and fixed becomes fluid.
"Unless above himself he can Erect himself, how poor a thing is man!"When I hear music I fear no danger, I am invulnerable, I see no foe. I am related to the earliest times and to the latest.
There are infinite degrees of life, from that which is next to sleep and death, to that which is forever awake and immortal. We must not confound man with man. We cannot conceive of a greater difference than between the life of one man and that of another. I am constrained to believe that the mass of men are never so lifted above themselves that their destiny is seen to be transcendently beautiful and grand.
